Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Source written and read by Dr Tara Swart.

Life-changing opportunities pass us by every day - now we can train our minds to seize them.

Self-help books like The Secret promise that we can tap in to the 'law of attraction' to control our destiny, simply by changing our thoughts. If we strip away the mystique, at the heart of this idea is a fundamental truth that is backed up by the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience: most of the things we want from life - health, happiness, wealth, love - are governed by our ability to think, feel and act; in other words, by our brain.

Dr Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and executive coach with a background in psychiatry, is convinced beyond all doubt of our ability to alter how our brains work - and transform our lives. In The Source, she draws on the latest cognitive science and her experience coaching highly successful people to reveal the secret to mastering our minds. 

With a four-step plan to awaken the power of your brain, this unique guide to life combines science and spirituality in a way that is open-minded and practical. Discover how to:

  • Challenge 'autopilot' thinking and rewire your brain's pathways to fulfil your potential.
  • Manifest the things you want by directing your energy towards your deepest values and ambitions.
  • Harness the power of visualisation to prime your brain to grab opportunities and take control of your future.
  • Attack life with confidence, dispel fear and avoid negative thinking.

Unlock your potential today - you are just four steps away from building a new confident you.

Critic Reviews

"Tara Swart is an extremely calming presence, all the more so for being palpably intelligent. Her brain appears to require no boosting. I’d sign up in an eye blink...I like her - a lot." (Hannah Betts, The Times

"Dr Tara Swart is friendly, charming, and knows what she’s talking about. Having qualified as a doctor, then trained as a neuroscientist, she worked as a psychiatrist before going into private practice as a highly sought-after expert to the rich and famous." (Janet Street-Porter, Daily Mail)

"Neuroscientist Dr Tara Swart works with some of the City’s highest-earning and most respected leaders in finance, law and media." (Evening Standard

I’m going to listen to this again.

This book was so much more than I ever hoped for. I thought if I’m honest I would lose interest pretty quickly as I have a short attention span, but I listened the whole way through and found all of the content highly relevant and motivating. As a result I’ve identified my next career move, it will mean big changes, but I’m ready for it! 10/10 for The Source.

Brilliant book

This book is logical, practical and all backed up by science. It is easy to follow and makes perfect sense. Full of exercises to help you develop and to be in control of your own trajectory. Easy to listen to. Highly recommended.

Hard to listen to

There are some good concepts, although little that haven’t heard before. Found the narrator very hard to listen to, irritating and monotone, to the point where I had to switch off sometimes. Doesn’t really work as an audiobook, perhaps better in print? Disappointing overall.

If you want her life story....

I really can’t stand self help books that are basically the authors life story and all about them, this is sadly one of those books and not easy to listen to. Narrator brings nothing to this already hard to listen to book.
