    Greg. Sorry, I didn't like any of the names. I didn't suggest an alternate.

    Sorry, I didn't like any of the titles either. They sound like bad self-help books.

    They're a bit clunky, Greg. Save the clunk for the sub-title (which seems to be all the rage in non-fic these days). I like what you're going for in a couple, though. How about something like:

    Shut Up!

    Teaching Your Brain Who's Boss.

    Have to agree with Frank. You want a main title that's short and punchy with a more explanatory subtitle. A variation on Frank's title for example:

    Shut Up!
    Talking Back to Your Brain

    Or:

    Shut Up!
    Silencing the Regrets and Guilt

    Look for something that will your title stand out from the crowd.

    You need a title that doesn't say, 'here's another boring self-help book that I probably won't even understand most of what the author's talking about.'
