    A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain explains how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth. The authors are two pioneers: best-selling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential.

    Story
    (1682)

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

    What did you like best about The Sociopath Next Door? What did you like least?

    The book of Martha Stout is a professional presentation, well developed, plenty of examples, clear and interesting. However it was a nightmare to follow the narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Just be more expressive, it seemed to me as if the narrator wasn't event interested in the book, she sounded awful.


    Was The Sociopath Next Door worth the listening time?

    Very, very difficult. I have to do an effort. It is really difficult because the subject is not easy nor a pleasant one. One needs to be focused ant the narrator distracts with her monocord voice.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It depends on the friend. I've friends who are not very used to social media and internet marketing. They'll find it very useful but not for me.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Maybe I'll give examples for beginners. I don't think that beginners may benefit if the story is about a big company. In the final third part, it gets better.

    If you could sum up The Amen Solution in three words, what would they be?

    Not so useful.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Daniel G. Amen again?

    I'm afraid not


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    it doesn't apply


    Any additional comments?

    I found a lot of common things we can find in several articles. The details were repetitive but there wasn't really a stuff that could make a real change in my understanding.
