    A leading neuroplasticity researcher, Jeffrey M. Schwartz has spent his career studying the structure and neuronal firing patterns of the human brain. He pioneered the first mindfulness-based treatment program for people suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, teaching patients how to achieve long-term relief from their compulsions.

    Thomas says: "Why you do things and how to change."

    Story
    What disappointed you about You Are Not Your Brain?

    Storytelling is always the best way to share learning experiences but I had to laugh at the woman who was unable to sleep and literally crippled with fear over the possibility that her college daughter might actually try smoking pot (gasp!). "Sweet Jesus!" I thought, picturing this mother with an Ann Lander's shellacked flip and wearing white gloves and sensible pumps and wondering if this audio program was produced in 1963. If that is the height of someone's worries, they've got a tough road ahead.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D. and Rebecca Gladding, M.D. before, how does this one compare?

    N/A


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I was not crazy about this narrator, finding him, as noted in the headline, a bit condescending.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from You Are Not Your Brain?

    Definitely the mother.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm working on making some changes to my life and have only recently realized that I have a slightly addictive personality. The audible books, Breaking Addiction and The Willpower Instinct have been more helpful to me personally than this one.
