    Conventional science has long held the position that 'the mind' is merely an illusion, a side effect of electrochemical activity in the physical brain. Now in paperback, Dr Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begley's groundbreaking work, The Mind and the Brain, argues exactly the opposite: that the mind has a life of its own. Dr Schwartz, a leading researcher in brain dysfunctions, and Wall Street Journal science columnist Sharon Begley demonstrate that the human mind is an independent entity that can shape and control the functioning of the physical brain.

    Would you try another book from Jeffrey M. Schwartz and Sharon Begley and/or Arthur Morey?

    I might, as the content did sound interesting, but I found it hard to pay attention to the words as the reading performance was more like something I would expect from a relaxation meditation.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Didn't get to the end.


    What didn???t you like about Arthur Morey???s performance?

    Dry, quiet, flat, sleep-inducing. Good enunciation, so the words were clear. I would choose to listen to him recite a book that I want to fall to sleep to.


    Any additional comments?

    Might have to buy the book in print to properly review the book as I couldn't listen to it all the way through.

    What if the inattentiveness that makes school or work a challenge holds the secret to your future as an entrepreneur? What if the shyness in groups that you hate is the source of deep compassion for others? What if the anxiety and nervousness you often feel can actually help energize you? What if the mood swings you sometimes experience canbe the source of tremendous creativity?

    What did you love best about Better Than Normal?

    Very interesting material! Easy to listen to. Good use of stories to illustrate the key points.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Pertinent for all and I'd love for more health care providers to listen to (or read) this. As a health care provider myself, I find it offered me more ways to relate to my patients and help them understand their own unique ways of experiencing life.
