I much preferred the narrator of Dr Joe's two later books. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had listened to this one first. The content was great - it is more of the science behind changing your thought patterns and how the brain works. Of his three books, this was my least favorite, although I still think it has some incredible information in it and is definitely worth the investment.

There is an excellent message to this book and the author goes in to explicit detail regarding how the brain works and functions. Many may find it slow and hard work to get through a couple chapters but I assure you it is well worth the money. You will be better for having read this book and be armed with some great knowledge

There are been plenty of great books that take a proven scientific approach to self improvement. This is not one of them. A confusing mismash of basic neuroscience, psychology and magical thinking. The basic premise that self reflection and a concerted effort to change automatic responses can help improve us is sound, but the author then claims a whole host of other super powers ranging from curing cancer to bestowing physic powers. The book covers some genuinely useful research on neuroscience and human behaviour, but it's often warped so badly to match the authors preconceived ideas, it's hard to know what you can trust. Even well understood theories such as Evolution are painfully misrepresented, and the chapter on Quantum physics is predictably fantastical. Aside from the content, one of the worst aspects is how painfully slow the book is. It is scattered with unnecessary repetition, meaningless passages and long and unhelpful analogies. Save yourself your money, and you time and pick up Peak, Habit, Grit, Deep Work, or any of the other quality titles that can back up their claims.

Not exactly boring, but not a book I can see myself revisiting in the near future.

Now I know why I do what I do, our brain mind body is fascinating.

Very in depth, excellent details about how the mind works, so it was very interesting. But I was really hoping for more instructions on how to apply it to my life.
