A big disappointment. Asking for a refund.

This title is a collection of conversations in what is basically a talk radio format. The authors lightly discuss around the topics of the book by the same title. It is essentially a nine hour sales pitch for the book. It seems disorganized and they don't go into any detail on any one topic. Don't waste your money. I have read Dr. Amen's "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life" and several other books on the brain. This audio does not reveal anything new or particularly enlightening. Additionally, the authors are making broad generalizations based on their clinical experiences. They seem to have the tendency to think that the addicted, mentally ill people they work with are a representative population. That approach may be pragmatic, but is not realistic. Instead of this "audiobook" do yourself a favor and get Norman Doidge's "The Brain That Changes Itself" or better yet "The Brain's Way of Healing." I suppose the actual book "Unchain Your Brain" might be worth reading/listening to, but don't waste your time on these discussion audios unless you are a die-hard Amen fan and just can't get enough of his work.

big advertisement for supplements

it's not a book, it's like a series of ads mixed into a discussion between a religious addiction psychiatrist and others. After an intro about what they're going to talk about in Unchain the Brain, it's literally chapter afyer chapter of telling you what they put into the supplements they sell.
Some good information but way too self congratulatory. Better listen to Robert Sapolsky, Dan Siegel, Ron Siegel...
