Publisher's Summary

Since the publication of The Biology of Belief, Dr. Bruce Lipton has received widespread acclaim as one of the most accessible and knowledgeable voices of "new biology". The science is called epigenetics, a revolutionary field that shows us how the energy of consciousness is as important in shaping life on earth as DNA and chemistry. In this original author adaptation, Dr. Lipton brings his clarity, insight, and humor to unveiling a profound change in how we perceive the way life works, including:

How environment, including our thoughts and emotions, controls the character of every cell
Quantum physics and life: the key to understanding the bigger picture of how "mind over matter" works
Cooperation and evolution: moving beyond the "selfish gene" theory to see that a natural trend toward harmony literally shapes the biosphere
Why the oft-dismissed placebo effect is really the most powerful healing tool we have, and much more
As scientists have mapped the human genome, it has become clear that there are important aspects of life that defy our traditional models of evolution. The "missing link", according to Dr. Lipton, is consciousness. With The Biology of Belief, listeners join this groundbreaking researcher to learn how this new science radically alters both how we understand life on earth and how we choose to live.

One very thought provoking book

I loved this book. The narration is fantastic and done in a style where it sounds more like a person is sitting down and talking to you. The book takes a very linear approach to spell out in very basic logic how your beliefs and thoughts can really affect your experience on this planet. It was VERY thought provoking.

If you have some doubt about whether your thoughts and beliefs can have a real tangible affect on your life I would recommend this book. It lays out a very scientific and common sense explanation to a lot of it. I'll be listening to this one again.

Audiobook or speech?

Would you try another book from Bruce H. Lipton and/or Bruce H. Lipton?

Not sure, but maybe.


What other book might you compare The Biology of Belief to and why?

I listened to the Wisdom Of Your Cells before I listened to The Biology Of Belief. I really liked Wisdom Of Your Cells. My question is, is the Biology of Belief really an audiobook? Looking at a copy of the actual book, I can't really match up any of the text of the book with this so-called audiobook.

Furthermore, instead of being an abridged version of Biology Of Belief, it really seems just like an abridged version of Wisdom of Your Cells. In fact, I could be wrong, but it almost seems like it was Wisdom Of Your Cells...but with the parts that I really liked in Wisdom cut out.

My advice is to save your money and just buy Wisdom Of Your Cells. Wisdom is worth it, Biology Of Belief adds nothing new, and removed some of the best information.

As for the content, I have been listening to/reading books like the most excellent, The Field, by Lynne McTaggart. I passed on a lot of the material to a friend at work. His comment was something like, "This is all interesting and all, but what benefit does this information get us in the real world?"

Well, Wisdom Of Your Cells is the benefit it gets us in the "real" world. It may not happen in my lifetime, but I think that eventually the information that Lipton talks about here...in this SPEECH, is going to be applied to the medical field to develop treatments that actually help people instead of killing them...or causing more problems than the disease that got the person to the doctor in the first place.

Treatments like the machine developed by Royal Rife seem much less quacky after listening to Wisdom Of Your Cells. In fact, it starts to make more sense than taking drugs that mask symptoms, rather than addresses the actual problem.


What aspect of Bruce H. Lipton’s performance would you have changed?

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL READER AND ACTUALLY READ THE BOOK...or market BoB as a speech.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, if it were based on Wisdom Of Your Cells, and not the much weaker Biology of Belief.


Any additional comments?

Save your money on this one.
