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.

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!
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.
I enjoyed the science that was explained in it. That, mixed with the spiritual aspect, really gave the book weight.
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.

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...
I listen to this repeatedly, so much great information that I love to review it when nothing better is on the radio
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!!
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.
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.
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.
"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.
"A man in the street understanding of the working"
The best ever
The carefully chosen language was like a searchlight shining on a previously dark subject of complexity
The realisation of where my wife is in the progression of Altzheimers and the hope the book provided.
The narration was clear and easy to listen to for many hours each day and holding attention throughout
"brilliant, very informative and inspiring,"
I would like to recommend this book to everyone. It is informative and well written. This is an excellent audiobook and pleasure to listen too
