Publisher's Summary

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

Based on thirty years of work with patients and on research drawn from nearly a dozen scientific fields, Mindsight brings these concepts alive through vivid case histories that show what happens when mindsight is missing, and how it can be strengthened in nine essential areas. Listeners of My Stroke of Insight or The Brain that Changes Itself will discover new ideas about memory, emotion, trauma and brain-mind integration - plus a richer sense of their own humanity.

Great Book

Loved it, I could not stop listening. It opened my eyes to do many concepts that I never know although I've read a lot.

More please!

I was sad when this book ended. The stories incorporated into the messages were riveting and served to illustrate each point with great clarity. This was a very powerful and meaningful read for me. Thank you Dan Siegel, for all of your work! This was the fourth book by this author that I've read, and I will continue to seek out more of his brilliant work!

Very Good Book!

What did you love best about Mindsight?

This book is very, very informative, not just 'fluff' listening! It's easy to understand and absorb the information.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Daniel J. Siegel?

Anybody! My main comment about this book is that while the information is top-notch, the performance is extremely poor! The narrator's voice has a gravely edge that is extremely annoying!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I almost immediately wanted to turn it off because of the narrator's voice. I didn't though, I listened, but it was not pleasant.

Any additional comments?

This is an absolutely wonderful book, full of information. Don't let the voice quality of the narrator cause you to completely turn it off.

Kinda long but very high quality

Mindsight is basically mindfulness. The concept of integration is worth the price of this book by itself.

Good theoretical book

It explains how the system of well being works. The author illustrates this with many case studies. It's not a practical book though how to perform mindsight yourself. You should probably read books about meditation then, which is an important part to practice mindsight. I liked the appendix which provides some kind of a summary of mindsight.

the narrator has vocal fry

Great information but it is hard to listen to this annoying trait of vocal fry. But that's my problem and I can make myself push through. I would have gotten the book instead. I think I missed this pointed out in the reviews or assumed it wouldn't bother me. I was wrong.

Amazing

This is a fantastically helpful Audiblebook. Brings many concepts that I've learned in other settings to a clear, coherent and useful whole. Highly recommended!
