    "Meh... misleading title."

    Not really, what I was hoping for I had hoped for more science and information. What I got was mostly eastern philosophy and guided meditations with I light sprinkling of science.

    The narration and audio quality are both good, but the book was dull and not what the title advertised.

    "An amazing inspiration !!"

    It's always a joy to listen to Rick Hanson. He is warm, gracious and wise. His advice is steeped in a combination of neuropsychology and Buddhist faith. This, for me, is perfect.
