    Story
    (77)

    Not long ago, it was thought that the brain you were born with was the brain you would die with, and that the brain cells you had at birth were the most you would ever possess. Your brain was thought to be hardwired to function in predetermined ways. It turns out that's not true. Your brain is not hardwired; it's "softwired" by experience. This book shows you how you can rewire parts of the brain to feel more positive about your life, remain calm during stressful times, and improve your social relationships.

    "A book for parents and people in need of balance"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Rewire Your Brain the most enjoyable?

    This is not just a book about neuroscience and neuroplasticity. We are provided with a ground level explanation of the workings of the brain, which for the beginner can be a good starting point. However, I found myself wanting diagrams to supplement the explanations relating to brain function. Perhaps an accomanying PDF with the relevant graphics would be useful. Although the FEED method proposed as a means of changing thinking and habits is not earth shattering, the book does provide the reader with a wonderful balance of information on other health promoting ideas such as nutrition, sleep, exercise, resilience, and the need for social and physical connection. In short, the book seems to emphasise that in order to be in a place where we can change the way we think the key factors of our life need to be in order.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The balanced and holistic perspective of the book


    Have you listened to any of Phil Williams’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Phil Williams narration style was able to keep my attention but was sometimes a little disconcerting when he demonstrated a lack of familiarity with the pronunciation of genre related words.
