    Dr. John E. Sarno's Healing Back Pain is a New York Times best seller that has helped over 500,000 readers. Continuing the research since his ground-breaking book, the renowned physician now presents his most complete work yet on the vital connection between mental and bodily health.... Musculoskeletal pain disorders have reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with most doctors failing to recognize their underlying cause.

    What made the experience of listening to The Mindbody Prescription the most enjoyable?

    Dr. Sarno has a nice view of the origin of the pains we have in our bodies. I particularly suffer of neck pain for 20 years and no doctor could find a solution, a cure or a relief. After reading Dr. Sarno's books I am sure that my problem is psychosomatic, but I could not relief my pain by only reading it. I wrote Dr. Sarno, but he is already retired, so I'll need psychotherapy to get better. At least there is a hope...

    In Love and Math, renowned mathematician Edward Frenkel reveals a side of math we've never seen, suffused with all the beauty and elegance of a work of art. In this heartfelt and passionate audiobook, Frenkel shows that mathematics, far from occupying a specialist niche, goes to the heart of all matter, uniting us across cultures, time, and space. Love and Math tells two intertwined stories: of the wonders of mathematics and of one young man's journey learning and living it.

    Story

    I bought the audiobook and the Kindle book, but I found it too difficult to follow the information on the audio, as it always refers to numbers, symbols and equations. The information was worth reading, so I could get an overview on what a “mathematician world” is like. The information is way too complex to understand, at least for me who does not have any mathematical background.

    Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku, the international best-selling author of Physics of the Impossible. Read by the actor Feodor Chin. Recording memories, mind reading, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis - no longer are these feats of the mind solely the province of overheated science fiction. As Michio Kaku reveals, not only are they possible, but with the latest advances in brain science and recent astonishing breakthroughs in technology, they already exist.

    The term road rage includes both aggressive driving and the potential for phsucial assault that results from a traffic dispute. Aggressive driving is now one of the nation's top three highway threats, along with drunken driving and failure to use seat belts. The goal of this program is to help you have a safe and enjoyable driving experience, whether you're traveling a few blocks or thousands of miles....

    Story

    The idea is good, but this book couldn't solve my problem of getting angry every time I sat in my car. But today I can say I am cured, not because of this book or any other, but because I learned to accept that other drivers also want to arrive at their destiny, and they are maybe in a greater hurry than I am, and that's why they drive like they do. I learned to be more patient and let the others go first, because I am not in a hurry and the ones that pass by me like crazy (just 10% of the drivers) are late or have an emergency.

    This landmark book is for those of us who prefer words to equations; this is the story of the ultimate quest for knowledge, the ongoing search for the secrets at the heart of time and space. Its author, Stephen W. Hawking, is arguably the greatest mind since Einstein. From the vantage point of the wheelchair, where he has spent the last 20 years trapped by Lou Gehrig's disease, Professor Hawking has transformed our view of the universe. A Brief History of Time is Hawking's classic introduction to today's most important scientific ideas.

    Time rules our lives, woven into the very fabric of the universe-from the rising and setting of the sun to the cycles of nature, the thought processes in our brains, and the biorhythms in our day. Nothing so pervades our existence and yet is so difficult to explain. But now, in a series of 24 riveting lectures, you can grasp exactly why - as you take a mind-expanding journey through the past, present, and future, guided by a noted author and scientist.

    When I got this course I expected something more about relativity (special and general), but I got a course about entropy, and at the end, I liked it very much, because I could learn more about this very interesting and essential topic, presented wonderfully by Professor Sean Carroll.

  • The Blind Watchmaker: Why the Evidence of Evolution Reveals a Universe Without Design

    The Blind Watchmaker, knowledgably narrated by author Richard Dawkins, is as prescient and timely a book as ever. The watchmaker belongs to the 18th-century theologian William Paley, who argued that just as a watch is too complicated and functional to have sprung into existence by accident, so too must all living things, with their far greater complexity, be purposefully designed. Charles Darwin's brilliant discovery challenged the creationist arguments; but only Richard Dawkins could have written this elegant riposte.

    It is such a long book for the same information: evolution. It must be a great book for biologists as it gives rich examples of how evolution works and why. But it was not what I was looking for, unfortunately.

    In this authoritative Very Short Introduction to the periodic table, Eric Scerri presents a modern and fresh exploration of this fundamental topic in the physical sciences, considering the deeper implications of the arrangements of the table to atomic physics and quantum mechanics. Scerri looks at the trends in properties of elements that led to the construction of the periodic table, and how the deeper meaning of its structure gradually became apparent with the development of atomic theory and quantum mechanics.

    It's a short book, but the story is too extensive! It tells the story of Mandeleev and a lot of historical information that is unnecessary for the understanding of the periodic table. I was looking for a more technical book, and not a historical one.

    The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the sudden expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal - everything is moved or restrained by four simple laws. Written by Peter Atkins, one of the world's leading authorities on thermodynamics, this powerful and compact introduction explains what these four laws are and how they work, using accessible language and virtually no mathematics.

    This book shows how thermodynamics is a vast field of study. I wanted just to have an introduction of this subject, but it is complex and needs time and study to grasp the fundamentals. It is a good book for it gives an comprehensive idea of the field.
