Publisher's Summary

Our thought lives have incredible power over our mental, emotional, and even physical well-being. In fact, our thoughts can either limit us to what we believe we can do or release us to experience abilities well beyond our expectations. When we choose a mindset that extends our abilities rather than placing limits on ourselves, we will experience greater intellectual satisfaction, emotional control, and physical health. The only question is... how?

Backed by up-to-date scientific research and biblical insight, Dr. Caroline Leaf empowers listeners to take control of their thoughts in order to take control of their lives. In this practical book, listeners will learn to use

  • The 5-step Switch on Your Brain Learning Program, to build memory and learn effectively
  • The Gift Profile, to discover the unique way they process information
  • The Mindfulness Guide, to optimize their thought life and find their inner resilience

Dr. Leaf shows listeners how to combine these powerful tools in order to improve memory, learning, cognitive and intellectual performance, work performance, physical performance, relationships, emotional health, and most importantly a meaningful life well lived.

Each of us has significant psychological resources at our fingertips that we can use in order to improve our overall well-being. Dr. Leaf shows us how to harness those resources to unlock our hidden potential.

This new book of research and insights and sharing comes from a very authentic place.
The science is easy to understand and the goal is a balanced body and mind.

amazing book

Love the information but I would probably not recommend audible but instead a book or kindle. there are many questions and also parts I would like read and process and go back to. but it is an anointed book as is the author. I am grateful for God's wisdom in this book!

Nothing new... especially the hard sell...

Old information synthesized in a slightly new age package. Grandiose claims of curing dementia, replete with an insulting insistence that ADHD and learning disabilities are mere misdiagnosis. No necessary inclusion of ACE (adverse childhood experience) considerations... basic mindfulness practices and stock educational theory presented as though they are new discoveries... I kept listening with the hope that there might be something redeeming, but Dr. Leaf’s work only amounted to a monumental waste of time... moreover, the shameless self promotion was too much. I feel like I’ve been had- like I just bought a bunch of neurobiological snake oil.

Compilation of her other books

I have ordered all of Dr. Leaf’s books. She’s brilliant for certain but unfortunately. It’s of her books rehash what is already in her other books. I was hoping this book would be different.

My guess is she is repackaging former teaching into a new presentation and that’s awesome if you have not read her over books.

Also, it references many PDFs but no url link is given. For this, I’d recommend the hard copy, not the audible.

And, of course, this would be much more powerful if Dr. Leaf was reading the material herself.

One of the most astonishing reads ever. - buy it!

I was delightfully stunned by the impeccable research of Dr. Caroline Leaf in this watershed and 'sea change' treatise on how the mind, brain and body really work seamlessly and wonderfully together.

The LORD; Christ Jesus' perfect creation of us and His inner workings of us is finally revealed and unveiled, for all to behold and marvel at!

This audiobook, it's PDF complementary study guide, the actual book is a must listen and read!

It should be retained, entrained, embraced and applied by every educator,, coach, parent, CEO, business owner, mentor and student...bar none!

You will never be the same if you take to heart, mind and body its insights, wisdom and practical daily applications! Carpe diem!

Great knowledge, bad narration

This book was full insightful information and knowledge that while in some ways familiar it gave so much more new knowledge and science behind practices. Very clinical at points but the tools given are simple and practical. However the narrator drained me. I t almost made me turn off the audio book and just go by the hard copy.

Not her usual standard.

This book is so hard to follow. If you’re not a neuroscientist this book is not something you can relax and read.
As much as I like her previous work, this book contains no new information. Lots of research cited which is useful for some, but I’d rather have the facts laid out and then how to apply action instead of knowing about each doctor, professor, university etc that conducted research.

I'm very interested in this book

And I enjoyed listening to it and going through the pdf. I'm going to listed to it a second time to fully absorb the concepts that are not familiar to me.

Not bad, but deliberately confuses with jargon

There is far too much use of neurological jargon, even more technical words than neurons, axons, dendrites, and synapses, which we readily understand.

It would have been much better simply to explain the methods devised by the author, instead of discussing the intricacies of the hypocampus' function, etc. All that hardly helps a learner to learn better or more effectively.

Amother thing the book does is to take well-known ideaa and cloak them in (pseudo) scientific rhetoric.

Hard to digest

I tried to make sens of this book but is to hard to follow up , not captivating in any way , no story behind it . It try`s to explain how your thinking process works but but terminology is hard to capture.
I read Chimp Paradox and the writer dose a better job explaining your brain by replacing each part of a brain with a character that takes you in the direction of the usefulness or badness of the process . Like , Chimp , Human , Computer ...
