Even if you hated your college psych classes, you will love this book. Siegel brilliantly shows--through case histories with his own patients--the connection between what we experienced as children and the physical responses our brains had to those experiences. And how it all adds up to how we act as adults.
With all the talk about right brain/left brain going on these days, this books shows how we become more one than the other. And how you can change that if you need to.
I especially love how he uses mindfulness meditation (nah, don't be scared) to help his patients get in touch with their inner workings. And what revelations come from it!
This book is touching, funny, incisive, and truly beautiful.
