I was interested in the book, because the author was on NPR. After going through it, I was not too impressed. The book covered topics that have been discussed in other brain books and I felt that the author needed to do his research more thoroughly. In the last chapters, he talked too arrogantly about the topic of religion and people’s spirituality.
If you're interest in how the brain works, a better book would be: The Brain that Changes itself by Norman Doidge". That one, I would give 4+stars. That author is actually a MD talking about the brain.
Good work, Walter Isaacson's best work so far.
One of the reasons I didn't give the review a 5 was that Isaacson repeated a lot of the stories over the different chapters of the book. He could of made the book a little more concise.
Over all, I'm glad Isaacson did it and I learned so much about Steve.
Most of Deepak Chopra's earlier books I very much enjoyed reading, but this one seems not to come together at all.
The book is good. Maybe needs a new edition that's not from the 80s. It seems a bit dated when the authors talks about how to use a hifi tape recorder.
great work, when you go through his audio book, you really feel that this guy is sincerely trying to help you become a better human being.
Thanks for all your work...
Wonderful, solid work, I'm wishing and waiting for his next book.
Good begining needs more a solid ending
