Repetitive - starts out much like an infomercial.

What did you love best about Change Your Brain, Change Your Life (Revised and Expanded)?

The first few chapters the author plugs his company constantly. At first I was good with that since it was his book - but then it became annoying. Other than that, there was a lot of information to take in.. I found myself wading through all sorts of issues trying to find some thing similar to what I was experiencing. Sadly, the scenario that fit my issue took a mere 1-2 minute to cover and very little information was actually provided. In the end, I thought this audiobook simply gave the reader/listener just enough to to keep them curious rather than providing useful information. I'm guessing those who needed to know more will have to seek out Amen's office - which is exactly what this book was intended to do. Worth a read but overall it was very mediocre.

A bit of a replay from Healing ADD

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Probably, but definitely Healing ADD

If you’ve listened to books by Daniel G. Amen before, how does this one compare?

On par

Any additional comments?

I listened to Healing ADD immediately before this, so was a bit of repeat. I have since taken my son to his clinic recently - so I'm obviously a believer
