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.
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.
Someone with a religious and biblical bias might enjoy this.
I was seeking a book based exclusively on scientific discovery.
This question is irrelevant.
This may be a good book. I only listened to some of the first chapter where there were numerous references to biblical scripture. I was just seeking a purely scientific approach without bringing religion into the discussion.
Even for a committed Christian the author stretches every truth and verse to fit her need. she chooses what ever translation or version of the Bible that fits her point. The science is itself compelling and to support it with the Bible is a good choice. But is it truly necessary to alternate every fact with a bible verse ?
The narrator came off as very preachy & even condescending.
The information was good, but a good 1/4 to 1/3 of the book was the authors preaching at the listener, quoting scripture from the Bible, etc.
No. Because if I want more, I can just go to the corner fundamentalist Christian Church.
I didn't know when I purchased the book, I'd have to do so much work, listening hard to make sure that the next sentence wasn't another cleverly deceptive lead-in to her next religious rant or scripture quote. It not unlike the way Paul Harvey (especially in the later years) would be delivering his "Rest of the Story" radio segment, when suddenly you would realize that he was no longer doing his piece, but had actually gotten you to listen to a commercial. You felt a bit duped, and disappointed that he would do that. Rush Limbaugh became a proficient practitioner of this same BS. THIS entire audio book is like that! You'll be listening, she'll be speaking of evidence, studies, research, etc., when suddenly you realize she shifted gears without letting you know and now had you listening to her Bible preaching. The narrator gets a bit sucked into the religious grandiosity, trying to give her voice a "Cecil B. Demille" (The 10 Commandments) quality. "God" becomes "Gaaaawd!" She's really big on Old Testament Books, especially Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. She cherry picks scriptures to try to tie to her scientific research. What is the net result? You're on the defensive the entire time you're listening, listening carefully to make sure she hadn't just changed tracks on you, and were now in church again. LOTS of work, mind ya! The irony is this: This type of cheesy, deceptive technique for trying to 'sneak' a sermon to us 'non-believers' is just the kind of hypocritical behavior that gives modern day Christianity a bad name. I kept waiting to hear, "Well isn't that special???" Save the sermon for church, church lady!
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Great! Awesome! Wonderful! Brilliant! Worthwhile!
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
"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.
"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.
"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
