    "Not what I was expecting"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    Has Switch on Your Brain turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joyce Bean?

    yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not so much

    "What's with all of the biblical stuff?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Caroline Leaf’s story?

    I feel she is trying to either preach to me or even worse, brainwash the reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Less of the annoying American drawl (or is it Canadian?) either way it grates on me.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    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.

    Story
    "Awful, unless of course you like religion with..."
    Would you try another book written by Caroline Leaf or narrated by Joyce Bean?

    ...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.


    What will your next listen be?

    Nothing by this author, that's for sure...


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joyce Bean’s performances?

    Possibly, if the title is not by Caroline Leaf.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, that I didn't have to put up with more than the first 9 minutes.

    "Tries to bridge science and religion and fails"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
