Book Description

7 Mar 2011
Through the research of Dr Lipton and other leading-edge scientists, stunning new discoveries have been made about the interaction between your mind and body and the processes by which cells receive information. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology, that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our thoughts. Using simple language, illustrations, humour, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of Epigenetics is revolutionising our understanding of the link between mind and matter and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

More About the Author

Bruce H Lipton, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized authority on bridging science and spirit. He has been a guest speaker on dozens of TV and radio shows, as well as a keynote presenter for national conferences. Dr. Lipton's groundbreaking book The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles documents the amazing new awareness that is currently rewriting the science of biology and medicine--awareness that the mind's perception of the environment, not genes, controls life at the cellular level. Dr. Lipton describes his own life as "radically transformed" because of his research: "Though I sought science as an alternate to accepting spiritual truths, lessons learned...revealed that life was not an issue of science OR spirituality, it was an amalgam of science AND spirituality."

5.0 out of 5 stars An important and extraordinary book 20 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is mostly about Science, but the author/reseach scientist writes in such an exuberant, engaging way that you get caught up in the excitement of his amazing discovery - that the cells in our bodies aren't just programmed by our genes as previously believed, but respond and adapt to everything around them - including our thoughts and ideas...
This confirms the link between body and mind that the alternative therapies use all the time but orthodox medicine has largely scorned.
Wisely the author doesn't go our of his area of experience and start telling us how to use this link (well, he does mention one method - using kiniesiology)- there are plenty of other books which do that.
All in all it gave me even more confidence in the body/mind link.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 1 May 2012
The research and description of the cell, especially the cell membrane, and how outside influences play the major role in gene activation helped me see the topic more clearly since I had come across the idea before. The chapter on the effects of stress on the mind, body and cell activity was also exceptional and I learned new information that helps to reiterate that stress reduction is very important. I had come across the importance of stress reduction via the research and explanation of the meditation and breathing program Éiriú Eolas which I have been practicing for some time.

The author in another chapter describes how as children we are programmed with habits, beliefs and that as adults we are reactions machines just playing back these programs. I found the description spells out the state of the individual pretty well. I'm not sure if the author is aware of the teachings and work of G. I. Gurdjieff. Gurdjieff laid out this fact in a full explanation of the subject over 70 years ago. The book `In Search of the Miraculous' I think gives the best and fullest version of Gurdjieff's Fourth Way teachings and is an in depth description of man as a reaction machine, so if you find the chapter interesting you will want to continue on to Gurdjieff. It's interesting to find that science with its discovery of the adaptive unconscious, see the book `Strangers to Ourselves' for a full treatment of the subject, that is mentioned by the author is just now catching up to Gurdjieff and what I see as the best explanation for the actions and state of man as a whole.

I'd put this book up there with Pert's "Molecules of Emotion", various of Chopra, and others based less on the esoteric nature of things, but more on scientific fact.

The book shows that there *is* another way to look at things, rather than just accepting blindly the [scientific] dogmas of our predecessors. If you're looking for that link between science and spirituality, then start here.

The book takes the reader on an exciting journey of discovery and revelation, challenging long-held beliefs on certain aspects of Biology and Physics, to arrive at a radically new and different explanations for how our DNA - and ultimately our very being - happen to be.

The author has taken a few knocks in life - as have most of us - and this comes through in the writing. However, those 'knocks' have clearly realigned his traditional academic conditioning and outlook on to a course of independent, pure creativity within his area of expertise, without the constraints of academic funding or peer-review looking over his shoulder all the time. Spending time in the Caribbean obviously gave him this break, and while other academics would probably look down on this judgmentally as a retro-step, it provided the fertile ground for this type of change to take place.

The book gave me the Biology 101 overview that I so desperately needed. As a physicist, I was able to fill-in the blanks when it came to the Quantum Mechanics side. As a spritualist, it all made such wonderful sense when the two came together.

Fantastic, A-1, thanks for such a great read.

This book by a cell biologist updates you on what you thought you knew about DNA, RNA and the behaviour of cells. It could have been dull academic reading, but Bruce Lipton's style and attitude make this a refreshing and fascinating read.
I have shelves full of self-development books claiming to 'change your life'. This book explains to me, at the level of cellular memory, why they don't work, what's missing from the formula. And what I can do about it.
More importantly, it is a wake-up call to orthodox doctors, drug companies and genetic engineers who are meddling with life like Mickey Mouse in the Sorcerer's Apprentice. Their science is, it is claimed, based on a Newtonian, Darwinian mechanistic view that was outdated science 70 years ago but is still being accepted without question today by graduates of the life sciences and medical schools.

It is a life-affirming, fascinating book and I am actively promoting it among all my friends. I thoroughly recommend this important book.
