4.0 out of 5 starsBook called - Think, Learn, Succeed
Reviewed in Canada on February 24, 2020
I have read her books before, I know the information is positive and very helpful. for me to get to understand all the deep things about the brain is too complex for my few minutes I generally have to read every day, but I will read as I can and also want to pass this book onto my two daughters. I watch her on Christian programs throughout the years and I so appreciate her sharing the knowledge and important information that she has studied and knows about so well. It is important to know how to change our thinking and that new cells can actually grow in our brain. Wow! Thanks, Maureen.
Dr Leaf is a favorite of mine. This book is one of many of her products that I owned. These are priceless materials. This is a must have product for students and adults. I am currently using Dr products as a healing tool. She never fail to impress, help and improved my life.

This new book by Dr Caroline Leafe really good you would benefit more from it if you are familiar with or read any of her previous books such as who switched on my brain or The gift in you. It brings a lot of her previous material from her earlier books into one book.There is a lot of detail but well worth the effort to read and put into practice ,even if you have not read any of the earlier books very good
I really like this book. The advice and tips are simple enough for 'lay people', and Dr Leaf has a way of explaining neuroscience in the simplest and easiest way to understand without watering down the most important aspects. It gives me a whole new perspective on how my brain works. Reading this book is a process of un-learning and relearning everything I know about thinking and how to learn. It's truly refreshing to learn that we don't actually have pre-programmed emotions; how we feel and react to the world is customised based on our unique way of thinking which is developed through experience, sociocultural influences, and the milieus, among others. I've developed a whole new understanding of what neuroplasticity means. Dr Leaf has also reconceptualised Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences into what she calls "cognitive modules", which is central in the development of her Gift Profile. I love the idea of using "customised thinking" to become better learners. I also find the Metacog very useful as a learning tool.
This is a book that I'll definitely go back to often.

Dr. Leaf does not disappoint! Her newest book is amazing - it unlocks and uncovers truths about mindsets, emotions, OCD, words, processing, and so much more. I appreciate that the information in this book is both practical and scientific. You don't have to disregard one or the other. She gives real life examples to teach and empower the reader to achieve more. Are you ready to disembark off the mediocre mindset track? Then grab this book, sit back, hold on tight, and embark on the extraordinary track of mental self-care. It's truly revolutionary.
This book is about personal development but is deeper and more intellectual than most personal development books yet Dr Leaf is able to make complex subjects seem easy to understand. Her description of the different mindsets is insightful. I've read several of her books and I think that this one is her best one yet. If you put the concepts in this book into practice it will change your life.
5.0 out of 5 starsWell written, easy to read, essential to a life well lived.
