This book ended up being very much about the bible and religious practice. Great, if that's what you're seeking, but I was looking for something a bit different.
not so much
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"Not for Me"
did not like the narrator. Too many religious quotations in the prologue put me off even starting the book.
the whole lot
