An astonishing new scientific discovery called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the adult human brain is fixed and unchanging. It is, instead, able to change its own structure and function, even into old age.
In this revolutionary look at the brain, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., provides an introduction to both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they’ve transformed.
“A remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain.” (Oliver Sacks)
“Mind-bending, miracle-making, reality-busting stuff with implications for all human beings.” (The New York Times)

A dishonest book, it is not evidence based science
It started off promisingly, neuroplasticity is real, but the author distorts the topic so much that in the end you can't tell fact from fiction.
His personal biases, (he has many). For example he rams is unproven idea that god exists down your throat in a patronizing manner. He pushes these commercial entities making a buck off neuroplasticity with what seems to be an uncritical eye.and on and on... Just because he is an MD does not make him right.
The girl who was born with half a brain and made good use of it, without any help.
Snake oil sales men will make a lot of money from this book, so I guess sadness that many people will be sucked in.
