    "very interesting"

    I am now on my second listen of Meditations to Change your Brain. The first time I just listened and took notes. Now I am going back and completing the meditations as I listen. I find it very interesting. I have no doubt it will work. Must think positively!

    "Absolutely effective"
    What made the experience of listening to Meditations to Change Your Brain the most enjoyable?

    What was most enjoyable was the narration by the authors. The authors made the book therapeutic. They gave each section the imperative view point necessary for the listener to hone in and listen intently!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Meditations to Change Your Brain?

    The most memorable moment was the meditation activities ! This book must be obtained as an audible version I cannot imagine it would be beneficial in paper form.


    What about Rick Hanson and Rick Mendius ’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the professional respectability and authority each Dr. Presented. This was not an ego, battle , it was team work with one goal in mind which is to help the reader develop these new skills!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If I were to make a movie of this book, I would not change it's title, I would add a sub title , Meditation to change your brain and your mind!


    Any additional comments?

    Rarely do I encounter a book that I am motivated to complete in one sit that has made profound changes in my life. This book is something I cam apply to my life and I have. The concepts have given me the courage to continue with the personal work I have accomplished. I am a health care professional and I would recommend this book to my clients!

    "Helpful"
    What did you love best about Meditations to Change Your Brain?

    I really liked the brief intro to each meditation, then guided meditation, then conclusive remarks about the meditation format.


    What other book might you compare Meditations to Change Your Brain to and why?

    I usually read more Buddhist type meditation books but I really found this to be an interesting and helpful departure from my regular meditation practice.

    "Incredibly boring"
    What would have made Meditations to Change Your Brain better?

    Fewer golf references. I get that the author wanted to hinge the book around a real life story, but golf? Puh-lease.


    What could Rick Hanson and Rick Mendius have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    No golf stories and a less monotone narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    When you put people to sleep, you know you've got a problem.

    "TBI"

    This book is wonderful. I'm a head injury survivor who's desperate to reclaim parts of my life before my accident changed everything. This book is helping do this life long task. It's playing a crucial role in me having a life and it's far more effective than the medications I've been prescribed.

    "To the point"

    Practical and easy to apply in daily life. Covers the details without getting mundane. They cover the biology, research and then offer meditations to follow. Very nicely organized.
