    "Great book for heavy knowledge seekers "

    Great explanation to the types of brain insults that result in psychiatric illnesses, and the best part is that he provides the methodology to correct them in many different ways. (not just with meds or visiting his clinic).

    It's quite overwhelming to the non medical listener as he mentions many medical terms, but it can be ignored in the sake of just matching your symptoms and the way to correct them.

    I'm a medical doctor and I go search for some evidences occasionally while listening and it's always there in the literature, great job by Amen.

    "Repetitive - starts out much like an infomercial."
    What did you love best about Change Your Brain, Change Your Life (Revised and Expanded)?

    The first few chapters the author plugs his company constantly. At first I was good with that since it was his book - but then it became annoying. Other than that, there was a lot of information to take in.. I found myself wading through all sorts of issues trying to find some thing similar to what I was experiencing. Sadly, the scenario that fit my issue took a mere 1-2 minute to cover and very little information was actually provided. In the end, I thought this audiobook simply gave the reader/listener just enough to to keep them curious rather than providing useful information. I'm guessing those who needed to know more will have to seek out Amen's office - which is exactly what this book was intended to do. Worth a read but overall it was very mediocre.

    "Every parent, manager, and pastor should read."

    Every parent Pastor manager or anyone in leadership should read this book. It will help you understand how your brain works as well as why people act the way they do and how you can help them.

    "Resourceful and easy to follow along with."

    This audiobook was a great listen. On many occasions I even had my mother listening to it. Now she won't stop asking me who Daniel Amen is and what else he's written.

    "Excellent. Remarkable discoveries about the brain"
    Would you listen to Change Your Brain, Change Your Life (Revised and Expanded) again? Why?

    Yes. Full of valuable information.


    Any additional comments?

    I was searching for books to help me work with adult learners coping with anxiety. This book presented itself and I thought 'Why not?'. The book was an eye opening experience.

    Well organized, well argued and well presented, understanding the biological roots of neurological processes is fascinating.

    Before reading, I perceived neurological issues as existing in some sort of sphere almost independent of their biological engine. Certainly I knew nutritional choices like energy drinks, excess caffeine, sugar, the S.A.D., created some issues with behavior, attentiveness, nervousness, focus, and learning - but I had no idea how physiologically important a proper metabolic environment could be.

    As your body gets bigger, your brain gets smaller. What greater motivation for making positive lifestyle choices?

    Overall this book has some advice on how to communicate with certain types of personalities, but did not provide what I was looking for. That said, the book is aimed at personal change and has had a profound impact on my approach to nutrition.

    "A 17 hour commercial for Aman Clinics"

    I gave up on this book half way through. While many of the anecdotes about brain function and human psychology were entertaining, this book is, at its core, a shameless plug for Aman Clinics. Save your time and money.

    "Interesting"

    It's an interesting audio book.,but not so convinced by the content.

    Unfortunately the author who is also the performer of the book is terribly monotone and very boring.

    Id rather get the book and miss he listen.
