Publisher's Summary

A scientist's exploration into the mysteries of the human mind.

Neuroscience studies the brain, but what does science have to say about the mind? A full examination of what we mean by the term "mind" has traditionally been the province of philosophers, but what might neuroscience teach us about it? How does the mind differ from consciousness? And how do we know who we really are?

In this book, noted neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., brings his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to this most perplexing of topics. He explores the nature of the who, how, what, why, and when of your mind - of your self - from the perspective of neuroscience. Mind is the essence of our true nature, our deepest sense of being alive, here, right now, in this moment. How science explains it is truly one of the most exciting journeys into knowledge we can take.

ridiculous, monotonous, no point

the author is the narrator, and even he seems bored by his work. the book fails to make any solid thesis, and is repetitive beyond belief, without making any substantial themes or points. waste of time and money

love

this book is amazing! I learned so much and feel a deeper connection with myself and our planet. I've never been great with Physics so it did get a bit complex for a little bit. I can say that I understand more than when I began this book! I recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for a better connection with our world.

Too scientific

The subject was interesting but it was intended for academics. However if examples of real life situations were more maybe would have been good for normal people like me.

Uuugh!

How many times can you repeat yourself? It appears that Dr. Siegel has babbled himself into conclusion and conviction.

Word Salad

The author is clearly impressed with his work. Unfortunately, I was not. It’s a word salad that leaves you hungry for an intelligible exploration into the mysteries of the human mind.

Dreadfully redundant

The premise is compelling but the book restates it so often and so pedantically that there's no momentum. The reader begins soon to wonder if the author is ever going to get on with developing his ideas or just keep repeating them.

STOP! MAKE IT STOP!

Here we have a well-meaning fellow with a passion for three things: 1) The obvious, 2) endless description as if it constitutes evidence, and 3) the thinly-stretched need to convince us that he has enveloped and super-setted everyone both since Plato and now on Audible.

I appreciate expertise. I take that means a therapist sticking to what they know. Instead we are prefaced with an architonic worthy of Kant and the constant intonation to follow him on a "journey" that offers little authentic or original to trust.

Get to the point!

Narration was fine but the book was long winded. Could have been far more concise. Some points were interesting but for the most part it's fake science.
