You can change your brain by how you use it. In this lovely book the author has distilled a mixture of neuroscience, psychology and mindfulness into 52 simple yet powerful daily mental practices. You can work through the book focusing on one topic a week, or just pick one that you fancy - no rules here. The idea is to do something from the book each day as it is daily practice that brings development and change.
Each short and easy to read chapter starts with a title like 'Be Mindful', 'Aspire without attachment', or 'Respond, don't react', then has some very pertinent background information, which really helps with the following section on how to do it in a short daily practice. The book's simplicity and kindliness make it very accessible and therefore powerful in bringing about helpful change. I suggest keeping it to hand so that you see it and dip in often [daily].

Fascinating insight from a man who is a scientist and at this same time, spiritual. Personally, I am working my way through the chapters a week at a time, allowing the information time to absorb. Particularly interesting was the revelation that our brains are programmed to be like Velcro for negative experiences yet like Teflon for positive ones. I intend to use this book to defy Teflon!

If you haven't come across these ideas before - it could be quite a revelation. Having read widely around mindfulness I didn't find anything which was 'new' for me. But book is well-written, chapters are short and easy to read. The idea of following suggestions in one chapter for one week is an excellent idea for self-helpers wanting to start putting the ideas into practice.

I have only just started to read this book, after a good friend suggested it might be of help to me. Passages I have read so far are very insightful and one paragraph about dwelling on negative thoughts was so telling, I acted on it immediately. Those few words alone were worth buying the book. Sometimes simple truths are not self-evident. The proliferation of self-help books is often scoffed at, but this one might actually HELP you!

A great little pocket book which I have also bought for a couple of friends, which is a high rcommendation! I also have Rick Hansen's book Hardwiring Happiness, so there was some overlap, but no matter.

A shorter collection of random facts and personal views that appear to have been collated from his other book. I found the book to be a weird mix of academic snippets and the author's opinions - but it isn't clear which is which, so it can be misleading to select fact from his personal viewpoint - which are written as global truths. Some of the ideas he has about diet appear to lack thorough research and may well represent the author's personal bias.
