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.

    "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.

    "Uuugh!"

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

    "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.

    "Get to the point!"

    Narration was fine but the book was long winded. Could have been far more concise. Some points were interesting but for the most part it's fake science.

    "Brilliant"

    Dan is a genius at communicating complex ideas, breaking them down into understandable segments that fit together effortlessly.
    This book will leave you with both a feeling of awe and a third to work toward being a better human. Thoroughly recommended , can't stop thinking about it and returning to it !

    "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.
