barely able to finish it

Not bad material, similar to other books aside from a bit of sales pitch for the authors facilities and products. You'll need to be tolerant of him sniffing long and loud in through his nose along with smacking his tongue on the roof of his mouth in order to get through the book.

Mixed feelings.

His wife isn’t even credited for this audio recording? She’s just as prominent and informative as he is... so much for trying to empower women.

Great information though. You learn a lot about hormones and helps make sense of mood swings and how trauma can affect the body. There’s no specific remedy or solution so don’t expect a cure.

This isn’t a book but a discussion.

This conversation is just 2 people bouncing theories constantly. They both find each other’s opinions interesting. It’s a constant ping pong of nothing really scientifically based. Also the beginning of the book was an infomercial to go to his clinic to get a brain scan that can’t be done anywhere else in the world.

Easy to follow and lots of useful information

It was a very enjoyable audio book. I like that it was read by Dr Amen and his wife. It was entertaining and provided lots of great advice.
