Publisher's Summary

Has science confirmed what the Buddha already knew?

In this groundbreaking audiobook, neuropsychology professor Chris Niebauer explains how after decades of research on the brain, Western science may have inadvertently confirmed a fundamental tenet of Buddhism: anatta, or the doctrine of "no self".

Niebauer shows how findings in neuropsychology suggest that our sense of self is actually an illusion created by the left side of the brain and that it exists in the same way a mirage in the middle of the desert exists: as a thought rather than a thing. This incredible thesis has significant and wide-ranging implications in psychology, philosophy, religion, and personal growth.

Not content to merely detail how this radical new - yet ancient - perspective could change our view of the world and what it means to be human, Niebauer also offers a range of intriguing exercises at the end of each chapter that will allow you to experience this truth for yourself.

Listen to this audiobook, and you will never view "self-help" the same way again!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very Insightful and affirming

I have a lot of affinity towards finding the truth of our existence, and as such have read a lot of books ranging from Religions to Schools of thought to Western Science and Quantum Mechanics. This felt like the affirming part of the puzzle, giving tangible reasons to what happens between your ears.

A closer look at the voice in your head

This a great, easy read explaining how the brain works, and why you're not that voice in your head. Who are you, really? What is the goal of life? This book provides simple, practical information to help answer those questions and more.

Very thought-provoking and well written.

This book was fascinating. Really gets you to think about how you perceive yourself and the world. The perfect bridge between certain hard to describe Buddhist ideas (not self / emptiness) and neuroscience, and it's explained in a way that most people can understand. Also, it incorporates explorations and exercises to understand the material more with your right brain and not just your "interpreter" left brain. Definitely leaves me with a lot to both think about and also to take into experiential practices, like meditation. Highly recommend, plus it's a short read and narrated well, so you can't go wrong!

exactly what a meditator needs to read

I've been meditating for quite a few years now off and on as things usually are.

I came across this book because I was looking for something to help me take things a little further. being scientific and an engineer in my normal working life I've always been a little bit curious on what science has to say about meditation. with that said I did understand that meditation is experienced experientially a few years ago even then this book help explained many aspects of meditation and mindfulness to me and I found it to be an incredible read.

Fascinating and Accessible

Thoroughly enjoyed this as an accessible introduction to the latest science on the two hemispheres of the brain and alignment with eastern philosophy. Great for anyone interested in either of these topics!

Gems of wisdom

Written with wit and a great sense of humour, based on the latest discoveries in neurosciences, mixing it with some kind of Alan Watts rascality regarding the eastern philosophies, and perfectly narrated, this book is just a gem, a door opener, wide, towards freedom of mind.
