Whose Mind is It Anyway? A Video Interview with Two Cool Authors about an Amazing Book

by Dr. Amy Johnson on June 30, 2016

Please Share!

I don’t have enough space here to list all the wonderful things about the book, Whose Mind is it Anyway? by Lisa and Franco Esile. But I’ll list a few: Whose-Mind-Book-3D

  • This little book sneaks essential truths about human life into a FUN, quirky, creative package.
  • You’re likely to experience an inner space and quiet–the voices in your head will begin to sound far less daunting–after you read it.
  • You’ll laugh out loud, and probably also feel a whole lot of relief.
  • You’ll get a kick out of the illustrations that Lisa and Franco created (note: check out the wood floors!)

In a nutshell, Lisa and Franco have managed to teach this profound and yet simple understanding about how life really works in an incredibly down-to-earth and entertaining way.

You really should check it out, in case I haven’t mentioned that. (And keep reading because I’m giving away two free copies!)

I had a conversation with Lisa and Franco recently about the book and about their creative process. They are a husband and wife team who accidentally realized that years ago, before they knew each other, they had each independently stumbled across an understanding of life that helped them through tough times.

In the interview you’ll see:

  • How the understanding they write about helped them personally
  • How they worked together on the book (a really fascinating discussion about how they let each others’ ideas flourish–especially of interest to those of you who create things!)
  • Their comments on various sections of the book and the origin of the woman on the toilet picture (I’m telling you, this is a really unique book!)

Watch the interview below.

GIVEAWAY: I am giving away two free copies of Whose Mind Is It Anyway? if you:

  • Leave a comment below. A simple “That looks like a great book!” is plenty.
  • For an extra entry, share this post on one of your social media pages and include the link in your comment (you can use the little icons at the top and bottom of this post to easily share).

Good luck!

I will randomly select the winners on Friday, July 8th

Here’s where you can find Lisa and Franco and their awesome book:


Buy the book on Amazon (and maybe leave a positive review if you love the book…we authors are incredibly, unbelievably grateful for those reviews) or anywhere books are sold.

I’d love to have a copy of this book. I believe it’s just what my granddaughter–who is naturally wise and sometimes negative–would enjoy it very much, not to mention my own admiration for it from looking through and getting their free book. Such a different approach and a refreshing one in my view. Thanks so much.

I’m looking forward to reading this book. Anything that you recommend must be an important read. Since I read both of your books, my thinking has changed dramatically. Along with reading and practicing new thinking strategies, I’ve been able to lose weight, start yoga daily, meditate, gets straight A’s in graduate school, get a better job and most importantly, I have been with out pain pills for 6 months. I’m excited to read this book and I am ready for some more life changing strategies. Thank you for the opportunity to receive this amazing book.

Ooh, this book looks fab! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy!


Robin Lynn Wildes-Author July 1, 2016 at 10:02 am

I went to school with Franco. He was always the most talented, and most sincere guy… And to see him finally with a partner that not only works and supports their lives beside him, but brings that inner peace and calm to the forefront… What a bonus!!!


Jackie Purdue July 1, 2016 at 12:08 pm

I’ve ploughed through so many ‘heavy’ books on self – development & enlightenment which gets tiring at times. This sounds like a lighter read and a welcome change.


Gavin July 1, 2016 at 12:34 pm

Thanks Amy for this second opportunity.

Warmest wishes, Gavin

Love how the very simplicity of this book makes it all the more powerful! I have read a variety of books on the Three Principles, and most of them were quite ‘deep’. This book strips away all the mystery, and makes the Three Principles easily accessible and digestible to anyone who has the privilege to read it. Simply amazing, thank-you!

Seems as I listened I was Brought to the flank And there I found such a delightful humor.
Humor took sting away and then insights. Well done. And I only listened to introduction.
Take a bow Lisa and Franco.


Paula DiPerri July 9, 2016 at 12:01 am

Humor comes together with insights. Clarity evident within simplicity. Well done Lisa and Franco
