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.

    "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!

    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.

    "Too many lists of things that we should be doing."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The lists of everything got to be irritating.


    Has Super Brain turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the positive approach.


    Could you see Super Brain being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    It had to many lists of things to do, one... It got irritating and boring. More real life examples would be better.

    "Great premise, bad follow through"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Spent too much time running down theories of people with whom they disagree (Richard Dawkins, for example) and trying to convince me that God exists. Would have been a much better book without that. And didn't need it either, would have been perfectly fine without it.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Shishir Kurup?

    He was a good narrator.

    "Forgetable for me, but, we're all different."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listened to his book a few months ago. Nothing about it sticks in my brain except that there was nothing to it that I had not heard before. Which may be good because I don't recall any glaring errors either. Still hours spent listening to something that was neither memorable nor contributed to my knowledge or well being was not a good use of my time.

    That said. If you are a geek and tend to know a lot about spiritual well being, neuroscience, plasticity, integrative medicine, and such, this is not the book for you. If, however,this sounds like something that you might be interested in but don't know where to start, this might be a good intro.


    Did Shishir Kurup do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Can't remember

    "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.
