    Great book!! Things anyone can do that make sense to help.

    You choose the areas you feel you need help in. No mystical mumbo jumbo. The idea that we can change our brain to a healthier pattern AND change our lives to a better pattern by these "practices" is wonderful and transforming. Exercise and repetition for the brain - it makes so much sense. When I was a child my mother always was saying "Stand up straight." As if good posture was simply a decision. If she had given me physical exercises called flies to train the muscles involved, it would have been more helpful. Of course the real problem was that I was the tallest child in the school and felt like a beanpole freak.
    I have been very aware of the brain links to the body and engaged in a lot of " patterning" exercises (you move right arm left leg and vice versa in many ways in unison) to recover from a stroke and dump the walker. The idea of a brain link to the mind and spirit side that can be affected so easily is a wecome revelation. Before, I had seen some research about brain wave differences in transcendental meditation and many sources had recommended meditation. I never did succeed in reaching that state at will or consistently. The practices in this book are things that anyone can do. And it is not "One size fits all" advice like "let go of the past and live in the present moment" that I find very annoying. [I don't want to let go of the past; the maxim about those who do not recall the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them works inversely for triumphs] You pretty much tailor your own program, and set your own priorities among the many options he gives you. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Nice & Lightweight

    This book was a quick read, even for me. It would really help someone who is very deep in the thicket of life, trying to cope with living.

    I highly recommend this book!  Very clearly presented practical ways to work with stress and increase your
    sense of well-being. I found the "just one thing" format works very well.

    Excellent companion to Buddha's Brain

    Read that first. It is an essential text for those who, like me, want evidence for their spiritual practice. . If you want or need practical suggestions to put themconceptsnto use, this is the book.
