How to stretch 2.5 hours of material to fit 11
Skip past 1.5 hours its just brag about his former work, and yes it is really 1.5 hours of it before the book gets started, then listen closely, and just skip over the "look how great I did I saved yet another life parts"; or you might risk falling asleep or even go into a deep coma.
There are a lot of interesting facts about the specific brain parts, the book covers mainly the behavior patterns concerning the deep limbic system, X lopus, some X gyros and chemical imbalances and that's very informative, also there are some nice self help talk. And if the book was only 2.5 hours long I would have been happy,

Not what I expected
Reading the reviews prior to purchasing this book, I was expecting a book filled with information to help me to reduce or eliminate my anxiety. The author touched on breathing and some flaky self-hypnosis methods but spent the majority of the book covering ailments of different sections of the brain and what medications would be helpful in reducing each ailment. Although the information was interesting, I find it useless since I do not have access to the types of brain scans introduced to the reader and the author himself explained how difficult it was/is to get a physician to agree with the statements in the book and to follow the suggested methods of cure. It's possible that I was expecting too much but I simply found it disheartening to be told all these magnificent cures for my particular ailments but then to also be told not to bother trying to find a doctor who would believe or agree on these methods. I was hoping for more of a self-help book that would allow the reader to perform methods of treatment in the confines of their own home and not have to seek out a professional.
