    Story
    "So well done. A joy to listen to"

    For the nerds-at-heart, this book takes the spiritual experience of meditation and puts it into scientific terms to explain the HOWs and WHYs of the benefits of meditation. Hits the SPOT for me! Truly rich in explanation and execution. I have become a devoted fan of Jack Kornfield and Dan Siegel after this book. I would recommend that you have some background about how the brain works (such as by reading Your Brain at Work by David Rock) and some experience with meditation (Any form will do) to get the full impact of how much this book puts into context.
    Awesome! Have given it to 3 other people as gifts.

    Story
    "Jack and Dan provide a good collaboration"
    What made the experience of listening to Mindfulness and the Brain the most enjoyable?

    Its a relaxing positive listen. The intersection of science and spirituality is fascinating - spiritual practice actually changes your brain. Who woulda thunk it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ends somewhat abruptly which made me wonder if the full recording was captured.

    Story
    "Jack has eaten too many lotus flowers"
    What disappointed you about Mindfulness and the Brain?

    I am sorry, I never got to Dr. Siegel whose Mindsight I have enjoyed and whose other works are well reviewed. Jack Kornfield is well respected within his circle but covers his introduction to the Mindfulness message with so much political, religious, and otherwise opinionated thinking that I could not get past the first twenty minutes.
