The master of neuroplasticity,
Norman Doidge, is the next Oliver Sacks. His first book, The Brain That Changes Itself, is a hallmark, one of the greatest neuroscience books I've read and recommend. That book is about the greatest researchers and their conquests. This book is about people, their problems (Parkinson's disease, chronic pain, autism, dyslexia, brain trauma...) and how they try to get better. Is a great book. I got a little skeptical about the the laser therapy, but the rest is very interesting. Worth the wait!

Like his previous book, "The Brain that Changes Itself", Norman Doidge MD, provides a state of the art up-date on his reporting of the more prominent practices and techniques for the application of Neuro-Plastic changes in the brain that are currently known. His direct, hands-on approach of meeting the scientists, engineers, doctors, and practitioners that are developing and using the tools and techniques, combined with the first person stories of those treated / trained is remarkable. In some ways he is a journalist or scientific report, who also as a certified MD, offers credible analysis of the diagnosis, treatment, and improvements seen it those in need. He offers great hope for recovery for conditions often considered intractable. TBI, Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, ADHD, PSTD, Autism like symptoms, premature birth related issues and conditions, plus many more are presented in light of the latest research in cognitive neuroscience, neuroscience, psychology. He has personally met and worked with most of the world leaders in these fields. Treatments with light, sound, music, body movement and body work, and many more techniques are presented.
High recommend the two texts as well as the auditory presentations.
