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.

    "Very informative and kept me interested"
    Would you listen to Super Brain again? Why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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."
    If you could sum up Super Brain in three words, what would they be?

    Manual for the Brain


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Super 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.


    What does Shishir Kurup bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He gives the words a texture and emotion for a richer experience. I actually felt like I was connecting to the author.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "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

    "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.

    "Explains Brain !"
    What did you like best about Super Brain? What did you like least?

    I want to build a Super Brain !! I already know Human Brains are Super. Does not provide Concrete Answers into Building a Solid Super Brain ! Deepak Goes into explaining the Functioning of the Brain. Talks about Anger , Depression, Joy , Happiness all range of human emotions and how it affects us. Title can be Misleading, I thought I was buying a book to teach how to train my Brain to be super, unfortunately this book teaches how the Brain functions , not how to have a super Brain
