The findings are as astonishing as they are helpful. Flying in the face of previous assumptions, the current research shows that not only is it possible for us to change the physical brain, but it is within reach of every single one of us.
Through research into neuroplasticity, it has been shown that we can:
Reset our happiness meter
Heal from depression, even major episodes
Learn new skills even in old age
Learn, and even teach, compassion, a critical finding for personal happiness and a more peaceful world
Surprising, encouraging, and full of good news that we all want to hear, Change Your Mind, Change Your Brain will help us not only to change our brains but also the way we approach our lives - for the better.

A good update on brain science
While some readers may be put off by the combination of the connection with the Dahli Lama and science, this book is a great review of current brain science discoveries. If you stick with the book you will get much more science than eastern religion. A very good read but if you are not used to the scientific terminology or if you do not like reading summaries of research (ala Scientific American) then you will struggle and may snooze thru some very important reviews of research.

Not what I expected
This book was marginally interesting, with a lot of information presented, although much of it is not new. I kept waiting for something actionable and there is just nothing there short of joining the Mind and Life Institute. In fact, it felt like a lot of the book was just promoting Buddhism and the Mind and Life Institute. I have nothing against Buddhism and will probably do some more research as a result of reading this book, but I was expecting a lot more and never got it.
