Skip past 1.5 hours its just brag about his former work, and yes it is really 1.5 hours of it before the book gets started, then listen closely, and just skip over the "look how great I did I saved yet another life parts"; or you might risk falling asleep or even go into a deep coma.
There are a lot of interesting facts about the specific brain parts, the book covers mainly the behavior patterns concerning the deep limbic system, X lopus, some X gyros and chemical imbalances and that's very informative, also there are some nice self help talk. And if the book was only 2.5 hours long I would have been happy,
This book will only make the author and the publisher money, in fact this book will waste your time and money.
Do not expect this book to make you any money, and do not expect that it will teatch you how to advertice online, there is no ideas about how to use search engines or anything like that at all.
The author promises that you will learn “How to Use Attention-Getting Online Marketing to Increase Your Revenue” but it does nothing of the kind, however it does tells you how to annoy publishers and how to try to sell stories to magazines. It doesn’t say the least about how to market anything online at all, it does tell you some boring stories about how great the author is and what wonderful “childish”ideas he thinks he gets,
His first book "How to Win Friends & Influence People" is a really good Book, however "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" is a very bad book, i am sorry i wasted a credit on it.
I had high hopes that this book would explain the basics about the subject, and maybe some examples of conditional thinking patterns or something similar, instead the book goes on and on and on about terminology and standards, and about this and that guy who made this and that theory about the subject, there is very little or close to nothing about the science of Evolutionary Psychology.
Insted I Would recommend that you Read “How We Decide- Johan Lehrer” and “Predictable Irrational- Dan Ariely” and then form your own opinions about evolutional psychology
its a classic and a must read.
the narrator makes Tom sound like a little girl, that's really annoying.
A nice selection of social skills to improve the quality of your life.
it's a rip off, and a lot of going around In circles, you lose attention every 5 minutes or so, and the actual results of the <<7 million dollar, cutting-edge brain scan study of over 2000 people from around the world>> or at least the very VERY small parts of it that we get to hear about would fit nicely in to a 2 page pamphlet, I guess they only show the real results to big corporations for a big price.
If you want a book that helps you decide if you are a believer, or if you are an atheist then The God Delusion is not the right book for you, Its more like a debate book, Dawkins speaks about earlier discussions between him and various religious believers, however in part 2 there are a some helpful facts for the recovering religious addict, But it is more like a handbook for the already established atheists, I would recommend Sam Harris The end of Faith for the addict, and once you break free of religion and start to enjoy life for what it is, then you are ready to read The God Delusion
I love this book,and i love the narrator William Roberts :o)
It's not really a self help book at all, it's more like a guide to the human brain, if you ever wonder why you think you are so much different then everybody else, this book will explain why you are not and why you are almost exactly like the rest of us, it also tells us what brain functions make us believe in religion, and so much more, I rate this book a must read, even if you have no knowledge about brain anatomy and functions.
The book offers some insight into early philosophy and it draws parallels to modern brain research, but that part is just publicity.
Other must read books Phantoms in the brain Ramachandran, origin of species Darwin
