If you think your brain and mind are one, think again. According to the interpersonal neurobioligy pioneer Daniel J. Siegel, the mind actually emerges out of the interaction between your brain and relationships. Now, with The Neurobiology of "We", Dr. Siegel invites you on a journey to discover this revolutionary new model of human development - one that can positively transform trauma, move you from stress to calm and equanimity, and promote well-being for you, your family, or even your community.

I am currently, at the age of 42, finishing up two bachelor degrees - one in psychology and the other in anthropology. I have also been practicing mindfulness through disciplines like Tai Chi, Yoga and seated meditation for the last 12 years.
I think Siegel has done the most holistic and comprehensive job of covering the power of being mindful, and what it means to our social relationships! There is an amazing amount of digestible information in this book. Highly recommend it! If you are NOT a student of neurobiology you may want to take some notes so as not to get lost; there are a lot of layers to what he is offering within this work.
Keep an eye on this man's work, he is onto some powerful ways of understanding the processes of what it is to be a human being.
I enjoy audio books and blogging.
The detailed explanation of how the brain is structured compared to the clenched hand.
The narrator goes into great detail about the thinking process. This detail enabled me to apply what I was listening to.
This book made me feel enormous joy that there were people like Dr. Siegel in the world.
I am looking forward to listening to this book again. I wish that this book's subject was mandatory teaching in all schools.
anatomy, physiology, synergy
Research is synthesizing some real understanding of how our brains and bodies work together to produce the personal psychologies we experience as individuals.
It brings to mind Emotional Intelligence, Taming Your Gremlin, and Gray's Anatomy.
This recording brings it all together; the mind, psychology and integration. Siegel has a unique ability to bring it all together seamlessly. When I got to the end I was ready to listen again from the beginning.
Neurobiology of We is easily understood assembly of developmental concepts which shape our life, our relationships, and even our brain. Dr Siegel writes in a comfortable style that is similar to sitting around and chatting. This doesn't mean it's not rigorous, it means you can tell he's speaking to you, not over you.
Several - The Buddha's Brain, The Mindful Therapist for a bit more rigor, Attachment in Psychotherapy. These books look at the brain, the mind, our relationships and what is healthy.
In a word- emotion!
The entire book is moving to me.
