Publisher's Summary

Since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton has received widespread acclaim as one of the most accessible and knowledgeable voices of "new biology". The science is called epigenetics, a revolutionary field that shows us how the energy of consciousness is as important in shaping life on earth as DNA and chemistry. In this original author adaptation, Dr. Lipton brings his clarity, insight, and humor to unveiling a profound change in how we perceive the way life works, including:

  • How environment, including our thoughts and emotions, controls the character of every cell
  • Quantum physics and life: the key to understanding the bigger picture of how "mind over matter" works
  • Cooperation and evolution: moving beyond the "selfish gene" theory to see that a natural trend toward harmony literally shapes the biosphere
  • Why the oft-dismissed placebo effect is really the most powerful healing tool we have, and much more
  • As scientists have mapped the human genome, it has become clear that there are important aspects of life that defy our traditional models of evolution. The "missing link", according to Dr. Lipton, is consciousness. With The Biology of Belief, listeners join this groundbreaking researcher to learn how this new science radically alters both how we understand life on earth and how we choose to live.

      "The Biology of Belief"

      This is a very easy to listen to book. I found the insights of Bruce Lipton fascinating. You don't have to have a science degree to understand it.

      "I want more!!!!"

      I love the content of this book and I love the way Lipton narrated it himself in his friendly, conversational tone. I will listen to this audiobook many times over. My only regret is that it isn't longer!

      "Packed with thought provoking ideas"

      Beautiful summary of the history of science, today's DNA research, and a guide to transform ourselves physically and psychologically - all in under 4 hours

      "Thought provoking!"

      Like I was relearning biology all over again! Loved it, very interesting and in my opinion accurate view. I really like how he reads it, it doesn't feel like he's reading a book, just talking to you.

      "Revolutionary"

      I could make this a rather lengthy review but instead, I will just say that this book is awesome. Many may be turned off for the first part as it seems like going back to Biology class. But the first part is needed to support the claims made later in the book. And the claims are big, however, entirely feasible. Great book

      "Interesting BUT..."

      I have to say that this is an interesting book.
      However most of what the author's conclusion is can be gleaned from Buddhist books such as Pema Chodron's "Getting Unstuck".
      This production of the audio book is also a good reason why AUTHORS SHOULD NOT READ THEIR OWN BOOKS... this was very annoying as he continuously and says things like "and the interesting thing was/is" and "and then there is this other thing" etc etc... which is CLEARLY NOT IN THE TEXT... and he is so hyper through the reading, speaking that it seems like he is TRYING too hard to prove he is right... Instead while listening to this I get the idea that I have somehow been transported to "My Dinner With My Meth Friend Andre"...
      all kidding aside I think he has interesting points, and yes we can change the way we are and reprogram ourselves. Someone should write a letter to the book publisher and ask them to reprogram the audio as I think it would have been more interesting read by someone less excited by the subject.

      "Scientific and Inspirational = Spiritual"

      Unlike new age spiritual books that are emotionally strong, yet scientific weak, this book provides scientific minds to appreciate the power of positive thinking from a technical perspective starting from molecular biology. Best combined with "Phantoms in the Brain" by Vilayanur S Ramachandran as neurobiology part is thin perhaps because he is a molecular biologist.
