When I opened Super Brain I didn’t have any clear expectation about what the purpose of the book was, or how it would help me, but this was one of the first non-fiction books I was inclined to immediately begin reading again. The advice is simple and straight-forward: you’re probably one of the many people who feels that you’re not living up to your potential. Regardless of your age and station, if you’re not one of the few meditating regularly, working on growing your inner light, or living every moment in a mindful manner (and perhaps even if you are), then you have something to learn from this book.
If only to help you see that you’re not in this alone, there are chapters that discuss the impacts of meditation on the brain, the neurobiological impacts of stress and how to change it, and synopses of recent studies that suggest the mind creates the brain, rather than the brain creating consciousness. Plus lists, so many lists that help you work through anxiety, depression, and anger.
A must read for lovers of the brain. Also, if you’re going through a major life change, this is a handy guide book. Think of it like Hitchhikers Guide to Your Higher Self.
