Much of what is interesting in this book is on brain anatomy. Daniel Amen is somewhat of a crackpot. A self-proclaimed genius, he compares himself to the likes of Einstein, Galileo, etc. for his ground breaking promotion of SPECT scans (primarily available only through the Amen Clinic). If he was 1/10th as smart as he claims, he'd be a force to be reckoned with. Now that i think about it, he's insane. He mentioned the name and cab number of a cab that gave him a bad ride a number of years ago. There were some other parts that were equally insane that i've chosen to block from remembering. There are some useful tips on supplements; however, he obviously hasn't done the research. He mentions acetyl l-carnitine, and lipoic acid, but he doesn't mention the fact that acetyl l-carnitine must be taken with lipoic acid. There are parts of the narrative that are just space filler.
Let me save you some time.
"Cut up all your credit cards, save money, and pay tithe to the church twice a month."
All the suffering, torture, genocide, children being shot in schools, etc., God could care less about these things, but he cares deeply about your bank account.
Another televangelist wannabe.
If you point out specific flaws in a book, audible will delete your review. But it's ok if you just say a book is "garbage."
The most important tips in this book were about what it takes to find investment property and continuing one's financial education. The rest was a blatant republican party endorsement from an ultra arrogant assclown. What was particularly laughable was that I'm supposed to believe that Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump want me to be rich. The author keeps referencing the other book he wrote with "The Donald." Donald Trump needs to have a coherent thought, STFU with the ignorant comments, and continue milking his current scams until he goes bust and files for bankruptcy again. How many times has he filed for bankruptcy? I could be a billionare too if I didn't have to payback the money that I lost. If these guys really cared about balancing the national budget, they would be endorsing Libertarian candidates like Gary Johnson who embody what the Republican party used to be. The new Republican party represents the worst of corruption, and the lunatic fringe. I lost almost all respect for Robert K. after this book.
While the concepts in this book are interesting, and thought provoking, the authors don't go very deeply into the technical details. Yet in spite of this lack of detail and explanation, the authors recommend that you sell everything of value that you own (except your car as you will need that to get to work to make more money, to give to their investment firm) and turn the money over to their investment company. That is what is scary. Be wary of anyone who tells you to sell everything you own, give the money to them because paradise awaits you in the afterlife, or "aftershock" in this case. How many times will people continue to fall for that one. At best, these people are well meaning, but misguided and arrogant. At worst, the next Bernie Madoff. "A fool and his money are soon parted." There's a reason that's a cliché. If these people could accurately predict the market which is driven by many more complex factors then anyone can calculate at this time, they wouldn't need to sell their financial services and books. Think about it. They're not your friends. They don't know you and could care less about you. They care about making money and feeding their egos. While I think the book brings up many important things to consider and has opened my eyes, I wouldn't give a penny of my money to their investment firm as I think these guys are the next Bernie Madoff. I have a 50/50 chance of being right. If I am, then I can write one of these "I told you so books." You heard it here first.
Another lunatic trying to push a hidden agenda. I got 6 minutes and 45 seconds into the book and had to discontinue after two "belief in God" promotions. Lesson learned. Research the author more carefully before purchasing a book even if it has high rating.
I only got this book because Katherine Kellgren was the narrator and there wasn't anything else that seemed interesting at the time. I was putting off listening to it because I didn't think the topic would be of interest. I was wrong. Very very funny. The target audience is young adults. I recommend it for anyone. Best book so far this year.
Debunks the repressed memory witch hunts. Very good introduction to cognitive dissonance theory. Guaranteed to offend those living in fantasy land (christians).
Her readings add so much depth to these books. You can tell she enjoys reading these stories. Definitely my favorite series.
I've listened to it four times already. Some of the most enlightening and useful information ever published. The style and narration is straight out of the depression era 1930's. That might put some people off. I find it refreshing. It's like traveling back in a time machine.
Butchered the Korean language though. You really need a map in front of you to follow along also.
