Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Carl Sagan, Rachel Carson, and Stephen Hawking, a new voice has emerged with the unique gift of translating cutting-edge science into clear, accessible language: Dr. Bruce Lipton.

With The Wisdom of Your Cells, this internationally recognized authority on cellular biology takes listeners on an in-depth exploration into the microscopic world, where new discoveries and research are revolutionizing the way we understand life, evolution, and consciousness.

In this full-length audio course, Dr. Lipton shares his lucid and startling insights about the building blocks of life, and how each one of our cells has far greater innate intelligence than we once believed.

    "A good reminder"

    The author has very informative information about cells, and therefore can be a good educational experience for understanding a bit of biology, or simply a reminder if you're already the scientific minded. It's best to listen to this with an open mind and question later, as his points of view are linked from one thought to the next.

    "Amazing, scientifically based, life changing"
    Where does The Wisdom of Your Cells rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Number ONE


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bruce Lipton the author has a scientific pedigree that give weight to his scientific expose of what is the very basis of our biological structures and function. He presents the facts, the benefits the issues and the solutions.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Explaining and clarifying the power of Neutonian assumptions of science and orthodox medicine. Also the fact that our genetic print is not fixed, that we can change our environments and thus the detrimental effects on the genetic footprint.


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

    It was enlightening, a real breakthrough. No cry or laugh but a big smile for having found out an explanation to so many questions.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep writing Professor Bruce Lipton, continue breaking the myths that entrap so many today. You are helping me to heal.

    "New science.... wow!"
    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed learning about the new science of epigenetics. In fact, am listening to the book for a second time, even though I just finished it. There's a lot to take in.... From the beginning of the book, I thought the author/narrator was going to tell us how to apply this new science to our daily lives, but he didn't. He explained a lot about why our daily lives are like they are, and hints that personal change is possible, but doesn't give us what we need to know to accomplish change. Very interesting read.

    "Everyone Should Listen To These Ones"

    We been following Bruce Lipton for awhile now and this book is another hafta have! Ever want to know how "things" work and why" Listen to this one and his other audio book, "Spontaneous Evolution". Everything you ever wanted to know about "why me, Lord" may just pop right out in the open, clearly. Find out why you are the way you are, if you can stand it...we nearly couldn't until we listened to his books. Now we know why and how WE can change things for our betterment.......6 High Fives (two books)

    "One of the best books I've ever listened to"

    This book really opened my mind. It makes logical sense and the author delivers the content in an easy to understand way. I am a layman and I know understand things that I thought were beyond my comprehension such as how the body works and DNA etc. I loved this book.

    "Pseudoscience junk"

    This is not a real science book at all.

    I've listened to the first hour and so far he has:

    *equated Newtonian physics with materialism (I'm sure Newton would have been surprised);
    *referred multiple times to the theory that genes determine development as a "belief system", and
    *set up a straw man by conflating this with the view that one's whole life is determined at conception,
    *cited the fact that stem cells develop differently depending on the conditions around them as evidence against it,
    *claimed without justification that a prediction of this theory is that organisms with more complex (to human eyes) phenotypes should have physically larger genomes, which of course is not what is observed because it isn't true;

    *suggested that the human genome (a word he pronounces incorrectly) project was done solely for the profits of venture capitalists, which I can only assume is an attempt to smear by association the whole of genetics and materialism, perhaps so that later he can say "but my brilliant revolutionary theories are ignored by the orthodoxy because they are in the pockets of...";

    and he hasn't even started to outline his main thesis yet!

    I don't intend to listen to the other 7 hours.

    "flight of thought"

    I had to stop listening after 2 hours. Jumping between facts, misrepresenting main stream medicine and coming up with conclusions out of no where, made this flight of though book just too much for me.

    "Duped by comparison"

    Here's what the publisher's say: In the tradition of Carl Sagan, Rachel Carson, and Stephen Hawking, a new voice has emerged with the unique gift of translating cutting-edge science into clear, accessible language: Dr. Bruce Lipton.

    Nothing could be further from the truth. I'm an English teacher; I've got freshman writers who can clearly articulate an argument. Bruce cannot. I expected actual science, not rambling self-absorbed anecdotes without a point.

    "Well this proves we have freedom of speech"

    As a PhD in chemical physics and and active worker now in biology (vaccine research), I can only conclude that some editor forgot that a responsibility is to check facts. This book is looney!

    "Bruce Lipton:- The Wisdom of Selling Out"

    This book contains much that is interesting and true. However, the bits that are true are not interesting, and the bits that are interesting are not true. In fact, I  want my money back! 

    We desperately need a re-enchanted holistic science to come from prominent scientists and the comparison to Carl Sagan or Stephen Hawking, led me to expect some genuine new insights into cell biology.

    What you get however, is highly inaccurate high school biology, pop-psychology and physics, spiced with New Age talk about "Energies" and "Signals".  Wherever it is possible to mis-represent, Lipton does it in spades. 

    For instance, a central thesis (and allegedly the reason Lipton gave up science) is that he could no longer preach the orthodoxy that "our genes control us", insisting instead that "the environment controls us". 

    This is nonsense! Neither genes, nor environment alone "control" us. Biology has always been about the complex  INTERACTION of genes with environment! The phenotype is what results. Geneticists also  routinely estimate the heritable genetic contribution to any given trait.

     Lipton cites the work of John Cairns as proof that mutations are "guided", thus "proving" that Lamarck was right and Darwin wrong. This is nonsense on stilts! Cairns work shows Darwinian selection in action! Cairns demonstrates not that mutations are guided (Lamarck), but that mutation rates increase (throughout the genome), in times of stress.

    Lipton's psychological theories, such as the passive "downloading" of parental beliefs are a mess of half baked pop-psychology. His physics too is dubious, morphing light absorbance and emission seamlessly into cellular perception of "mental energies".

    So, what is his point? That belief is so powerful, it controls reality. Unfortunately, he also believes that we are undergoing the "6th mass extinction of the planet". Feel free to sue in advance for damages!

    At £30 for 8hrs, this is money for old rope. Just don't buy it!

    DEFINITELY A MUST READ BOOK!!! Explain many important things very clearly. Lots of background information. You may disagree with a couple of things but it will make you THINK AND UNDERSTAND MANY THINGS. WELL DONE DR. BRUCE LIPTON!!!!

    "Religious nonsense"

    I got this book thinking it would be a interesting tale of how our DNA has evolved over the millennia. What I found was a load of religious nonsense. Leaving me wondering why this book was in the non-fiction section in the first place?
    Do not buy this book if you like science or evidence based facts.

    "Meh..."

    Some ideas are quite interesting, but too many ungrounded statements presented as facts. Would be still interesting if presented as a hypothesis rather than matter of factly... oversimplified science in many cases not accurate... it's worth a listen but don't take it too seriously... one big benefit is that this book actually pointed me to reasearch in Epigenetics which is not exactly what the author is suggesting but still an amazing branch of science.

    "Great book, lots of info,"
    Where does The Wisdom of Your Cells rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high, good explanations on why you can heal yourself, pity he didn't include how though! Well he did, just not in great detail.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bruce, for fighting against his superiors to discover new findings


    What does Bruce H. Lipton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Don't know, wouldn't have read the book so probably wouldn't have learned anything


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

    Never did that but it is one I continued to listen to after my commute home


    Any additional comments?

    Write a book on how, please
