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.

The book was boring because there was nothing new. It is simplistic and general in scope. I agree with the majority of it but I was looking for some Ah Ha moments but there were none. It was common sense but unfortunately people do not always follow common sense.
Like many books it could easily be written in 10 pages.
the parts I took away:
are you using your brain or is your brain using you?
the examples that demonstrate the power of the mind to influence the brain and its workings on the body
the excerpts/quotes from other scientists
for my liking a little bit too much Sanskrit and Alzheimer's which in light of the authors' expertise is to be expected.
overall really liked the book and the performance of the narrator
it helped me to strengthen my pursuit in healing
I have listened to this recording countless times. It presents the true synergy of spirituality and science. When you hear it, it feels right. This book put me on the path.
this audiobook is amazing. It will change your life. It will change the way you think about how your brain works how you think about things, how you think about your own life. if you like to read books about how the mind works this one is explosive. Enjoy
this book is like a window into yourself. you can learn a lot about things that you're doing subconsciously without even realizing it. This book coupled with the authors other book, super genes are like Guides to the body
I actually feel more relaxed, less stressed, and happier after reading this book. Very insightful.
