5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 18 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As good as, actually even better than Buddha's Brain. Rick Hanson is doing an amazing job at bridging the gap between cognitive neuroscience and 'normal' people. Read this if you want encouragement and motivation to practice meditation/mindfulness. Although not all claims are rigorously tested (although no doubt the claims are true) this book not only evokes more research it brings the power of mindfulness into the public domain. Rick rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOW TO LIGHTEN UP YOUR LIFE 18 Dec 2013
By RF.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I ordered this book, Hardwiring Happiness, from Amazon, I just knew I'd enjoy it having previously appreciated Rick Hanson's CDs. Anything written or recorded by Dr. Hanson is beautifully researched and delightfully informative. His words of wisdom and gifted presentation are excellent.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really dragged it out 2 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed with this book. Although it had some good points, and some people may find it useful, it was very repetitive, and the explanations and examples were drawn out. It could be condensed into a four page magazine article.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 20 April 2014
By Sally
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very wordy book. Wished he would get to the point more quickly. Probably has some wonderful positive tips but I lost interest before I finished. Maybe I'lll come back to it later. Was recommended by a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and spiritual 12 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always liked Rick Hanson's Just One Thing-his JOTS and this is an excellent addition. He writes with humour, and humility and although American in style it is sincere and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended 22 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't overstate how important this book is and the difference it has made to me, as someone who ruminates and worries constantly, seemingly without control or reason, the exercises this book promotes has been invaluable in bettering my mental health. Using the HEAL method and linking positive experiences to negative ones and "weeding" out negativity I'm really noticing the difference. I would say it also highlights the work I need to do as I just don't hold onto positivity. I think this along with Mindfulness which it crosses over with, should be taught in schools as a basic and the world would be a better place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid book presented well 9 Feb 2014
By Dave
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first chapter summarises what you what you need to know.
The remainder of the book elaborates and provides more detail and practical examples.
Well worth a read.
