Publisher's Summary

A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain explains how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth. The authors are two pioneers: best-selling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. They have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential. 

In contrast to the “baseline brain” that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, Chopra and Tanzi propose that, through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. “We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?” they ask. 

Super Brain explains how it can be, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit your potential, and then showing you methods to: 

  • Use your brain instead of letting it use you 
  • Create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain 
  • Reduce the risks of aging 
  • Promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection 
  • Access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss 
  • Overcome the most common challenges, such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and obesity 

Your brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. Through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In Super Brain, Chopra and Tanzi guide you on a fascinating journey that envisions a leap in human evolution. The brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us. It’s the gateway to an unlimited future that you can begin to live today. 

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

I expected a lot from this book, it came through

I took away a couple of important 'big ideas' that I had long suspected but couldn't understand because I didn't have the reference point I needed. The most important point for me was how to know when to look for your own hidden agenda in situations. That is going to be so helpful. The book is also encouraging by making change seem possible, and failure understandable and even part of the process of growth.
I feel positive and strong and capable and inspired after listening to this book. I will be playing this one frequently. Liberation seems not only possible, but inescapable. If you even faintly suspect you might like this subject matter, just do it, buy it, it's a fabulous book.

Just awesome to know the ability of the brain!

If you could sum up Super Brain in three words, what would they be?

I have been studying and practice the Primordial Sound Meditation about 4 years. This book gives me more solid affirmation to meditation practice for inner peace and health. It also gives me more positive feeling and thoughts toward the recovery of my past illness. It is one my great text books now.

I wish the the title was different

If you could sum up Super Brain in three words, what would they be?

Simple, Direct, Practical.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Narration is excellent

Which scene was your favorite?

The 2nd half

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I will listen to this again for the practical advice of changing behavior by raising awareness. Like life which evolves even if one chooses to be listless, this book helps simplify choices and conflicts. Why do we keep doing the same thing? Listening to this book was like spending time with to a good friend. NOT judging yet guiding. The timing for me was good. Thanksgiving Day, Americans often share, reflect and appreciate. Day after, off to the races getting deals and pushing away. Strange beings we humans.

Bringing An Interesting Concept To Actual Thinking

Would you consider the audio edition of Super Brain to be better than the print version?

In my view, being partially blind, I think that absorbing the content of this very interesting book would be more advantageous in the audio form. Even if I had perfect vision by using the audio version the retention of the material would be much better by attending to the subconscious and different parts of the brain than regular visual reading.

What other book might you compare Super Brain to and why?

The concept of the subject matter really sets this book from others.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yeah, the interesting content kept me glued for hours. If I had the time, one sitting would be more optimal to my taste.

Any additional comments?

Pretty interesting book. It got me thinking. I would suggest this book in audio form to a lot of people and maybe they would start thinking too.

Too many lists of things that we should be doing.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The lists of everything got to be irritating.

Has Super Brain turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like the positive approach.

Could you see Super Brain being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.

Any additional comments?

It had to many lists of things to do, one... It got irritating and boring. More real life examples would be better.

Very informative and kept me interested

Would you listen to Super Brain again? Why?

I was interested in this book since I have had a few head injuries and still notice some issues, I'd like to get back to 100% and this book made me feel like I can not only heal completely but grow past it. My Mom has Alzheimer's which also made me very interested in learning all I can.

Any additional comments?

I found the book was told in a manner that made me really interested in listening and not wanting to turn it off after my run (I listen to audio books while I run). I didn't expect that with this book, although it could be my extreme interest in this topic, I anticipated it being a pretty dry book. When I finished the book, I immediately started it over to catch the parts I may have missed as my mind drifted to my experiences.

Manual for the Brain.

If you could sum up Super Brain in three words, what would they be?

Manual for the Brain

What was one of the most memorable moments of Super Brain?

That I am not my brain and I need to take charge of my brain; use it as a tool to help me fulfill the goals I want to reach, for a full and happy life.

What does Shishir Kurup bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He gives the words a texture and emotion for a richer experience. I actually felt like I was connecting to the author.

Any additional comments?

Everyone should read this book to get a better sense of themselves. Learn all about the unconscious brain and how it controls almost everything we do!
