Publisher's Summary

A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain explains how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth. The authors are two pioneers: best-selling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential.

In contrast to the “baseline brain” that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, Chopra and Tanzi propose that, through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. “We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?” they ask.

Super Brain explains how it can be, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit your potential, and then showing you methods to:

  • Use your brain instead of letting it use you
  • Create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain
  • Reduce the risks of aging
  • Promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection
  • Access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss
  • Overcome the most common challenges, such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and obesity

Your brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. Through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In Super Brain, Chopra and Tanzi guide you on a fascinating journey that envisions a leap in human evolution. The brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us. It’s the gateway to an unlimited future that you can begin to live today.

    "I expected a lot from this book, it came through"

    I took away a couple of important 'big ideas' that I had long suspected but couldn't understand because I didn't have the reference point I needed. The most important point for me was how to know when to look for your own hidden agenda in situations. That is going to be so helpful. The book is also encouraging by making change seem possible, and failure understandable and even part of the process of growth.
    I feel positive and strong and capable and inspired after listening to this book. I will be playing this one frequently. Liberation seems not only possible, but inescapable. If you even faintly suspect you might like this subject matter, just do it, buy it, it's a fabulous book.

    "I wish the the title was different"
    If you could sum up Super Brain in three words, what would they be?

    Simple, Direct, Practical.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Narration is excellent


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The 2nd half


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I will listen to this again for the practical advice of changing behavior by raising awareness. Like life which evolves even if one chooses to be listless, this book helps simplify choices and conflicts. Why do we keep doing the same thing? Listening to this book was like spending time with to a good friend. NOT judging yet guiding. The timing for me was good. Thanksgiving Day, Americans often share, reflect and appreciate. Day after, off to the races getting deals and pushing away. Strange beings we humans.

    "Just awesome to know the ability of the brain!"
    If you could sum up Super Brain in three words, what would they be?

    I have been studying and practice the Primordial Sound Meditation about 4 years. This book gives me more solid affirmation to meditation practice for inner peace and health. It also gives me more positive feeling and thoughts toward the recovery of my past illness. It is one my great text books now.

    "Bringing An Interesting Concept To Actual Thinking"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Super Brain to be better than the print version?

    In my view, being partially blind, I think that absorbing the content of this very interesting book would be more advantageous in the audio form. Even if I had perfect vision by using the audio version the retention of the material would be much better by attending to the subconscious and different parts of the brain than regular visual reading.


    What other book might you compare Super Brain to and why?

    The concept of the subject matter really sets this book from others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah, the interesting content kept me glued for hours. If I had the time, one sitting would be more optimal to my taste.


    Any additional comments?

    Pretty interesting book. It got me thinking. I would suggest this book in audio form to a lot of people and maybe they would start thinking too.

    Story
    "Not a manual to having a super brain"

    The book provides a lot of information about how the brain works and amazing stories about how people recovered from brain injuries. Then it covered various topics like anxiety, depression, over eating, god, and on and on. It was like listening to a sermon and the action for you to do after each topic is you control your mind and you take small steps to go from a bad state to a good state. The only takeaway I got from this book is that we shouldn't underestimate the ability of the brain. As we get older, we commonly use the phrases "having a senior moment" or "my mind isn't what it used to be." The brain is a muscle. We have to eat healthy, exercise, and use the brain constantly to keep in good shape.

    "Really interesting topic"

    A lot of information is packed in this book and it is a lot to digest - but very interesting for anyone entertained by mind-body connection and the dawning recognition of western medicine!

    "top 2 most relevant books to us today"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Super Brain to be better than the print version?

    I don't know if it's better but I loved it!


    What other book might you compare Super Brain to and why?

    The Shadow Effect. Because these 2 books have been key to my spiritual growth on my path to enlightenment.


    Have you listened to any of Shishir Kurup’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NO


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If you aren't careful, you might become the amazing person you were meant to become.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it! Do it with an open heart, a loving spirit, and the intention to become all that you want to be. And you will...

    "Incredibly Informative"

    This was my first audio experience of these authors. Clear, easy to follow and very detailed. Apart form being incredibly informative, very well researched with the latest findings and simultaneously entertaining it resonated completely with what I was looking for. I knew my brain was powerful beyond believe, however this took it to yet another level and opened the door wider to endless potential and possibilities hidden inside of every human being.

    Thank you.

    "Thought provoking - excellent"

    Excellent book with many thought provoking ideas and concepts, I've been a fan of deepak copra for a while but found this one a little easier to grasp than some of his other titles, obviously helped by the excellent contribution of his co author.. I have listened to this at least twice and find I can dip in and out at will even in different places and still get something out of it.. It makes a lot of sense and stimulates calmness and thought.. Highly recommended...!

    "Concept and facts to ponder"

    The book covers a range of aspects from common medical fact through to thinking which is starting to be accepted as relevant to mental health and overall physical and spiritual well-being. There are many interesting anecdotes to support the narrative and leaves many questions to be absorbed and self-reasoned by the listener. It challenged me in many aspects of my personal approaches to anger, health, diet, positivity and spiritual understanding.

    The realisation of where my wife is in the progression of Altzheimers and the hope the book provided.
