told by the king who never stops writing. in learning his story you see why he enjoys them so much. why he works so hard to produce so many. I'm a fan of the no nonsense approach to writing. if your a member of the mystical muse camp you'll get a little less but still plenty for you to enjoy here.

loved that he sold a hand printed book at school when he was a kid. that's nuts

Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

I'm listening to this book to help me with a recent bout of panic attacks an feel like I got 5x what I bargained for. what a treat of information. I don't even have kids but I feel more confident I could parent slightly better now that I have listened to this book ahaha

In December of 2011, I gave a talk to an audience of scientists, Pentagon officials, politicians, and CEOs on the secret of life and how I'd figured it out the previous summer. Afterward, people came up individually and told me how much what I'd shared meant to them. This book is based on the truth I spoke about. It's something I learned from within myself, something I believed saved me. And more than that, the way I set about to do it. This is a collection of thoughts on what I learned, what worked, what didn't. Where I succeed and importantly, where I fail daily.

listened to this over the course of an entire day it was extremely helpful. I've been suffering constant panic attacks and as the book continued through the day I used more and more of the techniques he elaborated on. I feel much better now than when I started the book and I suspect that my recovery will be all the more quick because of it.


his reading of the book was excellent very smooth and calming. I was WAAAY to panicked to read that's why I choose an audio book and am happy I could listen to the entire thing without an incident. highly suggest this book for anyone that struggles with anxiety or is currently dealing with multiple panic attacks.

"I love myself"
