Avid learner! Bible-believing christian, eager to learn more about apologetics. Furthermore I'm always interested in psychological stuff.
Always be aware of what you allow to enter your mind. If you have fears or negative thoughts, you can work on "destroying" those thoughts and work on creating better thoughts. I personally love the Bible verses Caroline found, that matched her findings!
I really enjoyed the book and appreciate her sharing her knowledge and experiences.
This book is a little hard to digest as it is so full of information. But, if you will couple this book with a subscription to Dr. Leafs 21day detox online you will begin to master this whole concept. I write a Christian newsletter and have three of my readers doing the 21 one day process online right now. Every one of them have had profound clarity in areas where they have struggled for years. I have as well. I highly recommend this book.
I feel bad for giving this review. My suggestion would be to listen to the sample first...something I didn't do. I'm a fan of Dr. Caroline Leaf's but with this book I don't even know if the content is good because I couldn't get past the narrators voice. Though I'm sure Joyce Bean is a nice person...but for some reason her voice is like nails on a chalk board to me. It doesn't even sound like someone reading me a book...she seems more concerned with how her voice sounds than keeping the vulnerability of the content. I wish I could retuen my credit...oh well. Lesson learned. Always sample the book.
The content is amazing, however I wish the narrator sounded more like a friend. After hearing a few of Dr Leafs conferences I think I just expected the same vibe. Normally when read by the Author, though read, it's coming from there heart and has a particular conviction that connects with me.
I like Leaf's work, but the narrator reads a list of bible verses frequently which makes it impossible to concentrate on the content. When you are reading a physical book, you can just skip over the lists, but when I have the audio running in the background, I don't want to keep running back to skip over every long list of verses. I wish they would take it out for audio version so that there's a flow.
She sounds irritated and her fast tone of voice makes it seem like she just wants to get through this book as soon as possible. We want to feel relaxed when listening to audiobooks, not rushed. It's worse when she's reading through the long list of bible verses. She seems to be annoyed by it, too. (Which is understandable, because I get annoyed listening to the list.)
The long list of bible verses.
It seemed like good book that I would've enjoyed listening to, such a shame.
This book has a very good science explanation of how the brain works. However, the detox plan does not go through "the dirty dozen" as she does in the "who switched off my brain" book. I enjoy that plan better, but this plan is very suitable for if the Holy Spirit is guiding you in a certain area of detox in your thought life.
Love the things of God, and this abound life Jesus is Living through me
it opened doors to how awesome our God is, and special we are and can be if we open our hearts to Him and just believe
"Tour de Force!"
What a read! Dr Leaf breaks down quantum theory! Epi genetics! Quantum Zeno Effect! God's position in and on it all! Amazing! Woven together with skill, practical application and love! Well done you! MB
Incredible. Yet readable. Understandable and achievable. I look forward to applying these truths and see progress in my own life. Feeling encouraged. And determined.
"cutting edge stuf"
the truth everybody needs to hear
one of the best books i have ever read
"Exactly what I need"
Loved it. Been wanting to know how to renew my mind and this is it.
"Great great great"
Very well written. Shows you how your brain works. Would have loved to hear more real life examples.
"Awful, unless of course you like religion with..."
...a light sprinkling of science.
The Publisher's Summary needs correcting as there is not a single reference to fact religion and Christianity is a hugely important theme, repeatedly touched upon by the author with references to biblical passages, and how 'our thoughts allow us to lead good lives, just as our thoughts can allow us to follow Satan and lead the life of a sinner' or something to that effect.
After another five minutes of being preached to, I had to turn off. My first regretted purchase here on Audible. I don't mind religion being touched upon when considering the philosophy of science, or human nature, but not in an actual attempt to 'support' the scientific findings of neuroscience.
Unless you like a heavy serving of religion and Christianity with your science, please avoid this at all costs. Falsely advertised.
I highly recommend you have a look at David Eagleman's 'Incognito' instead.
Nothing by this author, that's for sure...
Possibly, if the title is not by Caroline Leaf.
Yes, that I didn't have to put up with more than the first 9 minutes.
"I feel conned."
This writer cannot resist slipping in how God works in his/her mysterious ways - everything is reduced to pat sayings cherry picked from the bible and dished up as the truth. The publishers have misled me I think.
"What's with all of the biblical stuff?"
I have only just started this book and am very disappointed with the constant references to the bible. I am not a religious person and hate having religion shoved down my throat. It is not apparent from the book description, or from any of the reviews that this was going to be the case. I was hoping for a scientific book and I just hope that I can ignore these contstant biblical references and gleen something helpful from the rest of the content.
I feel she is trying to either preach to me or even worse, brainwash the reader.
Less of the annoying American drawl (or is it Canadian?) either way it grates on me.
I feel angry and cheated that I wasn't made aware of the religious angle of this book prior to purchase. I have since noted that others have now reviewed the book and it is now apparent.
"Tries to bridge science and religion and fails"
Better referencing, less broad statements, less definite answers to problems without enough evidence, less wordings such as baby brain cells, brain detox in 21 days etc.
After having heard the great book Bad Science, it is impossible to listen to this book. It might be interesting to people who are more interested in learning important biblical passages.
"warning label: contains STRONG religious language"
narrator is ok, but the book is FULL of religious thoughts which the writer tries to disguise as science. So no, I will stay away from the author from now on.
not if I can help it.
there is a lot of feeling in the narration, which I think does not belong in a book that is supposedly scientific. it reads more like a sensational magazine: "You too, can become healthy! God will save you!"
If you like your science with a BIG helping of christianity, go ahead and read the book. If not, stay away!
I consider myself a relaxed christian, and I am by no means against faith of any kind, but I feel strongly that faith and science should stay separately, and when scientific books use biblical quotes, well.... not my cup of tea.
