What would have made The Neuroscience of Change better?

The Challenge: The book is presented as a fact based, scientifically proven guide for personal change - who doesn't want to perform better at work, love better at home, and serve better in the community? The only way to perform, love, and serve better is through change, and what better option than a scientifically proven method for accomplishing that?The Delivery: The book is delivered as a strangely meta-physical new age religion program mixed with a good helping of Buddhism. Keeping to a scientifically based explanation and how - to guide for positive change would have been great.

What didn???t you like about the narrator???s performance?

The author read the book and the reading cadence and pace inserts pauses and commas where the sentences and paragraphs should flow freely. Listening was difficult with the cadence she read it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

What did you like best about this story?

the meditations are my favorite

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It is very good material-if you can get past her reading pattern.

Did The Neuroscience of Change inspire you to do anything?

It's hard for me to finish this book. I think it is the, "Valley girl voice"? For a book over $25 or a credit; with narration like this authors; I feel robbed.

Any additional comments?
