MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

When preparing for standardized tests, most students only study content and strategy. But teacher and mindfulness expert Logan Thompson claims that those are just the tip of the iceberg.

Beyond the Content shows readers how to use mindfulness to identify and cope with hindering thoughts and emotions--what author Logan Thompson calls "passengers."

Thompson says that while mindfulness is already practiced in businesses, colleges, and professional sports to optimize performance, it's long overdue in test prep. 

Logan Thompson scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT(R), GRE(R), and GMAT(R). He has studied and practiced mindfulness since 2008. After earning his MBA from Vanderbilt University, Thompson lived at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA, for two and a half years, spending several months in silent mindfulness retreats. He also completed a two-year mindfulness teacher-training program by Inward Bound Mindfulness Education. Thompson holds a master's of education in human development and psychology from Harvard University and is an adjunct psychology professor. He has spend the past several years teaching both mindfulness and test prep for Manhattan Prep. 


Beyond the Content is available wherever books are sold.
