Publisher's Summary

A scientist's exploration into the mysteries of the human mind.

Neuroscience studies the brain, but what does science have to say about the mind? A full examination of what we mean by the term "mind" has traditionally been the province of philosophers, but what might neuroscience teach us about it? How does the mind differ from consciousness? And how do we know who we really are?

In this book, noted neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., brings his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to this most perplexing of topics. He explores the nature of the who, how, what, why, and when of your mind - of your self - from the perspective of neuroscience. Mind is the essence of our true nature, our deepest sense of being alive, here, right now, in this moment. How science explains it is truly one of the most exciting journeys into knowledge we can take.

love

this book is amazing! I learned so much and feel a deeper connection with myself and our planet. I've never been great with Physics so it did get a bit complex for a little bit. I can say that I understand more than when I began this book! I recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for a better connection with our world.

Transformation through clarity!

If you ever wondered if there could be a clear and consilientbreading of the teachings of ancient wisdom and the findings of modern science, neuroscience/brain science then you have found it here with Dr. Dan’s book on Mind. In my experience, this is the most brilliant reading and explanation of systems theory and the implications of the findings of modern science and their ancient roots in the teachings of the wisdom of liberation. I deeply appreciate and love Dr. Dan’s heart/mind and vision for us, all of us.

Too scientific

The subject was interesting but it was intended for academics. However if examples of real life situations were more maybe would have been good for normal people like me.

Uuugh!

How many times can you repeat yourself? It appears that Dr. Siegel has babbled himself into conclusion and conviction.

Deep and Thought Provoking

I truly enjoyed this book. If we, as a species could convert the theory of this book into common practice, then we will be living in paradise.

Word Salad

The author is clearly impressed with his work. Unfortunately, I was not. It’s a word salad that leaves you hungry for an intelligible exploration into the mysteries of the human mind.

Dreadfully redundant

The premise is compelling but the book restates it so often and so pedantically that there's no momentum. The reader begins soon to wonder if the author is ever going to get on with developing his ideas or just keep repeating them.

STOP! MAKE IT STOP!

Here we have a well-meaning fellow with a passion for three things: 1) The obvious, 2) endless description as if it constitutes evidence, and 3) the thinly-stretched need to convince us that he has enveloped and super-setted everyone both since Plato and now on Audible.

I appreciate expertise. I take that means a therapist sticking to what they know. Instead we are prefaced with an architonic worthy of Kant and the constant intonation to follow him on a "journey" that offers little authentic or original to trust.

The science of spirituality

An excellent thoughtful deep dive into the mind and how to achieve wellness. It's very refreshing to hear spiritual ideas broken down and analysed from the perspective of science.

I found it to be a bit of a struggle at times as there is a lot of repetition. I felt the message could have been delivered in half the time. However, the content was so valuable this issue didn't reduce my score and I would recommend it in a heartbeat to those interested in the topic.

Hated it

Lots of speculation presented as fact. Couldn't stop saying "within ... AND between!" like it was some great new insight every few sentences. I really wanted to enjoy this because it's a topic I'm genuinely interested in, but it was just terrible. 0/10, literally worse than watching paint dry.
