In The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge described the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in 400 years: the discovery that the brain can change its own structure and function in response to mental experience - what we call neuroplasticity. His revolutionary new book shows, for the first time, how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. It describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the forms of energy around us.

The book goes into some very interesting methods of treating people with common brain related injuries. I think some of the stories were a little long, so I think there is potential to reduce the length of the book to make it even better. For the interested reader, I believe the author could have gone more directly into how to get in touch with practitioners.

Very good and simply explained introduction to the ketogenic diet. This time the author has invested in a good narrator also, which gives the audiobook the highest score on all remarks.
If there was one thing that could've been better it would be more diverse meals for the meal plan. But I guess the author wanted to make it simple, not overwhelming, for beginners...

The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

Makes one think about irrational choices one has made and how one can reduce irrational choices in the future. But as Kahneman suggests, it won't become easy.
