    Story

    Buddhist philosophy tells us that all personal unhappiness and interpersonal conflict lie in the "three poisons": craving, anger, and delusion. With new high-tech devices, scientists can peer inside the brain centers that calm the inner storms of rage and fear. They also can demonstrate that awareness-training strategies such as meditation strengthen emotional stability - and greatly enhance our positive moods.

    Overall

    One can tell the ideas discussed in this book are ethically driven. To me that is important, because I do not like feeling I need to fact check a book. This was my first exposure to the Dalai Lama and Buddhist teachings. Learning about it through scientific dialogue definitely gives one a unique perspective. This book has helped me obtain a far greater degree of personal peace. That in return has lead to amazing health benefits. If you are prone to stress, anger, frustration, obsession, or any other "destructive" feeling; this book could vastly change your life.

    Few of us realize how many states of consciousness we pass through on a regular basis. In this entertaining guide, Jeff Warren explores 12 distinct, natural states we can experience in a 24-hour day, each offering its own kind of knowledge, insight, and adventure.

    Overall

    The book is mostly about the various states of consciousness. However, if you are interested in insomnia, dreams, or other sleep issues this book would be very interesting to you too.

    Overall

    This book has helped me understand why I connect with some and not others. It has also helped me verbalize my choice of companions to others I respect. This book breaks down what every human is looking for in socialization efforts from oneself and from others. If you have ever felt alone in a crowd, you may enjoy this book.
