A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain explains how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth. The authors are two pioneers: best-selling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential.
In contrast to the “baseline brain” that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, Chopra and Tanzi propose that, through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. “We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?” they ask.
Super Brain explains how it can be, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit your potential, and then showing you methods to:
Your brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. Through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In Super Brain, Chopra and Tanzi guide you on a fascinating journey that envisions a leap in human evolution. The brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us. It’s the gateway to an unlimited future that you can begin to live today.

I took away a couple of important 'big ideas' that I had long suspected but couldn't understand because I didn't have the reference point I needed. The most important point for me was how to know when to look for your own hidden agenda in situations. That is going to be so helpful. The book is also encouraging by making change seem possible, and failure understandable and even part of the process of growth.
I feel positive and strong and capable and inspired after listening to this book. I will be playing this one frequently. Liberation seems not only possible, but inescapable. If you even faintly suspect you might like this subject matter, just do it, buy it, it's a fabulous book.
Simple, Direct, Practical.
Narration is excellent
The 2nd half
I will listen to this again for the practical advice of changing behavior by raising awareness. Like life which evolves even if one chooses to be listless, this book helps simplify choices and conflicts. Why do we keep doing the same thing? Listening to this book was like spending time with to a good friend. NOT judging yet guiding. The timing for me was good. Thanksgiving Day, Americans often share, reflect and appreciate. Day after, off to the races getting deals and pushing away. Strange beings we humans.
I have been studying and practice the Primordial Sound Meditation about 4 years. This book gives me more solid affirmation to meditation practice for inner peace and health. It also gives me more positive feeling and thoughts toward the recovery of my past illness. It is one my great text books now.
I listen to this repeatedly, so much great information that I love to review it when nothing better is on the radio
Very well organized; covered a lot of ground with regards to neuroscience and integration of the mind/body connection
A lot of information is packed in this book and it is a lot to digest - but very interesting for anyone entertained by mind-body connection and the dawning recognition of western medicine!
In my view, being partially blind, I think that absorbing the content of this very interesting book would be more advantageous in the audio form. Even if I had perfect vision by using the audio version the retention of the material would be much better by attending to the subconscious and different parts of the brain than regular visual reading.
The concept of the subject matter really sets this book from others.
Yeah, the interesting content kept me glued for hours. If I had the time, one sitting would be more optimal to my taste.
Pretty interesting book. It got me thinking. I would suggest this book in audio form to a lot of people and maybe they would start thinking too.
Performance enhancing prose
Deepak. Clear and articulate outlines of thought and how to best utilize.
It made me think...differently. That's good.
Chopra's wonderful presentations together with neuroscience matters, quite useful and enjoyable.
Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old
Very natural, easy to follow...
Fantastic, amazing and mind opening audio. The narrator was great. This was so interesting it had me listening intently to what was being said. I plan on listening to this again as there was so much fascinating information to take in. Truly worth your time and money to listen to this or read the book. Well, well worth it.
