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:
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.

awesome, thought provoking
Probably the best audio book I ever listened to. It can get pretty technical at times, but I believe its a must read for everyone (at any age).
I was interested in this book since I have had a few head injuries and still notice some issues, I'd like to get back to 100% and this book made me feel like I can not only heal completely but grow past it. My Mom has Alzheimer's which also made me very interested in learning all I can.
I found the book was told in a manner that made me really interested in listening and not wanting to turn it off after my run (I listen to audio books while I run). I didn't expect that with this book, although it could be my extreme interest in this topic, I anticipated it being a pretty dry book. When I finished the book, I immediately started it over to catch the parts I may have missed as my mind drifted to my experiences.
Manual for the Brain
That I am not my brain and I need to take charge of my brain; use it as a tool to help me fulfill the goals I want to reach, for a full and happy life.
He gives the words a texture and emotion for a richer experience. I actually felt like I was connecting to the author.
Everyone should read this book to get a better sense of themselves. Learn all about the unconscious brain and how it controls almost everything we do!
I enjoyed the science that was explained in it. That, mixed with the spiritual aspect, really gave the book weight.
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.
He was a good narrator.
No. The lists of everything got to be irritating.
I like the positive approach.
It had to many lists of things to do, one... It got irritating and boring. More real life examples would be better.
Silvina is a registered psychologist in clinical and counselling psychology with children, adolescents, adults, couples, families.
Chopra's wonderful presentations together with neuroscience matters, quite useful and enjoyable.
Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old
Very natural, easy to follow...
one of my all time favorites
so much information packed into this book. I will have to listen to it several times. a very empowering read with new updates on old diseases and information on improving your own life experience. I wish everyone would read this book!!
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.
