Tina Thomas is the director of The Gestalt Institute and Relationship Center of New Orleans and the author of "Passion and Power" and "Who Do You Think You Are?" She has a PhD in biopsychology and is a registered nurse and board-certified social worker. A former trainer for SkillPath seminars, she was voted number one trainer out of 275 trainers by her ninth month there, and in 2012 she was asked to be a TEDx speaker in Nova Scotia. She has also served as clinical director of Tulane Cancer Counseling Center and research professor at Duke. Her greatest accomplishment to date is the creation and development of her theory of the biological basis of human personality that she believes is the unifying paradigm for all of personality psychology. Tina has been a featured expert on personality for ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC.
Dr. Tina Thomas' book, "The Ultimate Edge," is a book that transcends advice and self-help books. It is a part of the realm of books that can genuinely assist the reader to do more than lose weight or dress better. It provides a roadmap to greater stability in life and provides readers with something that can aid them in accomplishing larger, life- changing goals. "The Ultimate Edge" is clear and direct to the point in its writing. Not only does Dr. Thomas manage to tackle complex subjects (for example, the different parts of the brain) but she manages to do so in such a way that reading the work is enjoyable and understandable, even to an uninitiated reader. Who would have thought such material could be a joy to read? --Dennis Boyles, former editor of Men's Health magazine
