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.

    "Material/Voice"

    The material was "Life giving." It was explained clearly. However, the voice quality was sometimes problematic.

    "chapter numeration"

    Chapter numbering is WAY off. Annoying and frustrating!
    The author was the perfect narrator in this case. Well done!

    Story
    "Siegel is a very intelligent man so I only say...."
    Would you try another book from Daniel J. Siegel and/or Daniel J. Siegel?

    No


    If you’ve listened to books by Daniel J. Siegel before, how does this one compare?

    No


    Which scene was your favorite?

    His last patient


    Did Mindsight inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This is more of an Oprah book of the month than a report on modren psychology. Dr Siegel actually reports a bit of his therapy and some self talk can grow a brain! He solves the issue of nature\nurture in one sentence. And James would be happy, he also solves fight\flight in one sentence. Plus adds FREEZE to fight\flight. We have fight\flight\freeze. REMARKABLE, call Dr Phil!

    "Really, really good & it works"

    Really good book which works. Clearly passionate, kind and caring this book is worth its weight in gold. It's long, however it's all for a purpose which beautifully unfolds.

    Story
    "I appreciated this approach."

    Mr. Siegel explained how a person can use mindfulness to change her brain's actual physiology and improve her life. I appreciated this because I am put off by floofy fakey god talk. A lot of reviewers didn't like the narrator, but I thought he was totally great. I thought he sounded exactly like George Clooney, which made me feel that he was not only handsome, but also sanctimonious and slightly irritating. That was amusing to me. I think you should definitely listen to this book.

    Story
    "Awesome Book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Mindsight the most enjoyable?

    I learned so much about behavior and the human brain, and how you can change it and form new wavelengths and patterns.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was logical and concise and informative.


    What does Daniel J. Siegel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Well, I listened to this while driving, so he brought me vocals so I wouldn't crash. lol


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it's far too long with far too much to process.

    "Gets a little boring"

    Very thorough and well researched but I ended up turning it off 1/2 way. I think the explanations were just too long and the theory and principles of mindfulness and positive psychology overcomplicated here.

    "Midiocre/Semi-Autobiographical Book"

    I hate when author dive so lavishly into their own life experiences in a book that suppose to be scientific. Almost half of the book is taken from Authors clinical practice which is pretty redundant even for a self-help book.
    and.. whats up with this "Mindsight" meme ? he is using it like an advertisement buzzword. Author is trying to repackage the ancient knowledge with his own buzzwords..which is not appreciated.

    "So-So"

    Not what I expected - not really helpful or applicable to MY life. Too much background info and not enough "Meat".
