Although very scientifically written it is done so in a way that may engage the average, non-science oriented reader as well. It uses a range of interesting real life stories and examples to capture the listeners attention.
Of the 2 dozen or so books on neuro-plasticity and neuro-psychology I've read, this book tops them all. The way it's written and read make it easy to visualize the concepts and put them into motion in day to day life. It makes the subject matter comprehensible to any audience; not just those with medical backgrounds.
Not much into Danielle Steel but this one was a decent listen. The setting was enjoyable.
Enjoyable, worth a listen. Although a 'dated' setting, the novel reads more contemporary. Not many slow parts that I can recall so easy to get through to the end.
Although somewhat predictable, the story flowed without any stale parts. The main character, Jack Reacher, is likable and a fun 'hero' type. One of the first novels in awhile I've been able to get through to the end. I'll definitely be listening to more of this series.
I might have liked this one more if I'd listened to it before Gone Girl. I was disappointed. Its title suits it well as it is a dark story and filled with a bizarre evil that I found to be depressing more than anything. It's still a well written story I just didn't find much to like about the characters.
a rather basic overview of the concepts of scientology but a good choice for someone who just wants to understand it a little better or for someone like me who has an interest in dozens of subjects
I'd still recommend this book but the first one was more insightful. I felt like some of the information in the 2nd book was 're-processed'
Yes, actually i've already begun a second listen. I've rarely listen to a fiction book more than once but this one is that good
absolutely. great story, characters are well-developed, lots of plausible twists and turns
brilliant, necessary, interesting
the brain that changes itself because it has many of the core concepts found in neuroscience
Although it had some valuable insights I didn't find too much that was groundbreaking or that I hadn't read somewhere else or known through some other means.
