Be the master of your fate; the captain of your soul.
It appears some of the previous critics are trapped in the "I want to see it first before I believe it" trap. It is actually the other way around. I thought this was a very well documented and passionately narrated view backed by scientific reasoning and experiments. It is the people that live outside the box that make the most headway in advancing human knowledge and development. Though I would have liked more on the ways to develop and cement belief in the brain (mind)... perhaps another book Bruce.
This is a very easy to listen to book. I found the insights of Bruce Lipton fascinating. You don't have to have a science degree to understand it.
I love the content of this book and I love the way Lipton narrated it himself in his friendly, conversational tone. I will listen to this audiobook many times over. My only regret is that it isn't longer!
Beautiful summary of the history of science, today's DNA research, and a guide to transform ourselves physically and psychologically - all in under 4 hours
Like I was relearning biology all over again! Loved it, very interesting and in my opinion accurate view. I really like how he reads it, it doesn't feel like he's reading a book, just talking to you.
Good Book, Took me a little longer to understand it, but The more I listen, The better I love it. Would recommend this book .
I could make this a rather lengthy review but instead, I will just say that this book is awesome. Many may be turned off for the first part as it seems like going back to Biology class. But the first part is needed to support the claims made later in the book. And the claims are big, however, entirely feasible. Great book
Unlike new age spiritual books that are emotionally strong, yet scientific weak, this book provides scientific minds to appreciate the power of positive thinking from a technical perspective starting from molecular biology. Best combined with "Phantoms in the Brain" by Vilayanur S Ramachandran as neurobiology part is thin perhaps because he is a molecular biologist.
I have to say that this is an interesting book.
However most of what the author's conclusion is can be gleaned from Buddhist books such as Pema Chodron's "Getting Unstuck".
This production of the audio book is also a good reason why AUTHORS SHOULD NOT READ THEIR OWN BOOKS... this was very annoying as he continuously and says things like "and the interesting thing was/is" and "and then there is this other thing" etc etc... which is CLEARLY NOT IN THE TEXT... and he is so hyper through the reading, speaking that it seems like he is TRYING too hard to prove he is right... Instead while listening to this I get the idea that I have somehow been transported to "My Dinner With My Meth Friend Andre"...
all kidding aside I think he has interesting points, and yes we can change the way we are and reprogram ourselves. Someone should write a letter to the book publisher and ask them to reprogram the audio as I think it would have been more interesting read by someone less excited by the subject.
I am writing this review just to warn potential listeners: this is not a science title. By the start of the 2nd hour, I just could not get more bullshit. The author actually states that autism is caused by lack of affection. The narration, though, was really great, and was the reason why I kept listening until now.
Audible is really not doing a good job in classifying science titles. Tip: check if author have anything published in the main science journals, like Nature, Science, Proceedings of the Royal Academy of Science, PNAS, or alike. Otherwise, think it twice.
