    Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.

    Roy says: "Neurophysiological Explanation"
    "First Half Great, Second Half Not as Much"
    Overall

    I thought the first half of the book that explains the neurophysiology of emotions was well-done and very helpful, particularly from the meditators point of view. The second half of the book seemed to have way more meditation instructions (which I've seen explained better elsewhere) which diffused the understanding of what's going on in the brain. And frankly, the narrator got hard to listen to over time. I found myself not being as mindful to listening to the book as I had intended.
