Author should narrate

The content is amazing, however I wish the narrator sounded more like a friend. After hearing a few of Dr Leafs conferences I think I just expected the same vibe. Normally when read by the Author, though read, it's coming from there heart and has a particular conviction that connects with me.

SAMPLE! couldn't get past the voice of the narrator. Credit wasted.

I feel bad for giving this review. My suggestion would be to listen to the sample first...something I didn't do. I'm a fan of Dr. Caroline Leaf's but with this book I don't even know if the content is good because I couldn't get past the narrators voice. Though I'm sure Joyce Bean is a nice person...but for some reason her voice is like nails on a chalk board to me. It doesn't even sound like someone reading me a book...she seems more concerned with how her voice sounds than keeping the vulnerability of the content. I wish I could retuen my credit...oh well. Lesson learned. Always sample the book.

Warning! Try before you buy..

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

It tries to be accessible claiming it is not a "scientific tome" but I didn't find it very easy to follow or comprehend. Expect a lot of neuroscience technical terms and some made-up terms like "milkshake multitasking". In the most part, I got the gist of the narration however there were plenty of times when my reaction to what I was hearing was one of complete bewilderment.

I sympathize with people who did not know the relationship between the author's Christian faith and her scientific research. The description should have made this explicitly clear and it is baffling beyond belief why this glaring omission has been made.

I did enjoy listening to examples of her research - the personal and very human stories of people who have made amazing medical recoveries. I was disappointed that her scientific mind did not deliver more sound and persuasive reasoning. It is facile to simply throw biblical quotes at people to "prove a point" especially when not given their proper context. For example, when the Bible talks about the "body" it is sometimes referring to "a body of people" or "the church" and not your physical body. Context is everything.

I found the egotistical nature of this book very off-putting. The book is all about the author, her research, her clinics, her clients, her 21 day brain detox plan and even plugs some of her other products. Christianity however doesn't place importance on self but in the personhood of Jesus Christ and selflessness.

Has Switch on Your Brain put you off other books in this genre?

Nope. This particular genre is somewhat muddled. It is filed in the "Health and Personal Development" category but could equally be filed away in "religion and spirituality". Towards the end of the audiobook it makes references to "Mindfulness" and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) so it could be filed away in that genre also.

Would you be willing to try another one of Joyce Bean’s performances?

Not really impressed by the narrator.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Switch on Your Brain?

Take out the last couple of minutes which contains all the boring copyright statements for all the different translations of the Bible used throughout the audiobook. It was a painful listen. Also stop throwing quotes around like a Study Bible. I don't want to pause and look stuff up when I'm listening to an audiobook. I have real books for that.

Any additional comments?

I really wanted this book to "blow my mind" as one of my friends suggested it would. Sadly, I feel deflated by it.

Voice so boring

Would you try another book written by Caroline Leaf or narrated by Joyce Bean?

No. the narration is extremely boring making it harder to take in the information.

What was most disappointing about Caroline Leaf’s story?

The narration

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Joyce Bean?

Someone without a monotone voice

Do you think Switch on Your Brain needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It needs a user friendly book. Too much science jumbo jumbo
