It really is powerful and can lead to change

Would you consider the audio edition of The Neuroscience of Change to be better than the print version?

It is a really awesome book. If you take the time you can change your world for the better. You should also read her book on willpower. I don't really care about the "traditional disciplines" What I do care about is that it works. If taking 20 min a day could make almost every part of your life better why wouldn't you.

This book is about meditation... DISAPPOINTED!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a book about meditation. Fine for some. I wanted a book on neuroscientific facts or studies. The slow and boring pace where meditation is taught is not typical of a book about neuroscience. Change Through Meditation would have been a better title. I would not have wasted my money.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kelly McGonigal again?

NO!!!! I purchased the book after seeing an impressive performance on TED Talks. This book is nothing like that presentation. I feel a bit robbed.

What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

It was read so slowly, I was bored at the first sentence. Again, this was a "How To" on meditation, not material about neuroscience.

Any additional comments?

Wish I had my money back
