Descripción del producto
An American Booksellers Association Indie Finance & Personal Investing bestseller (4/13/11) WomanAroundTown.com, 3/29/11 "The writers demonstrate how we can change our neurocircuitry to take charge of our fate." Spirituality & Practice "Some of the most fascinating and impressive material in this book comes in small pieces: material on mirror neurons and their role in empathy, the skills needed to perfect your reading of the body language of others, the importance of focus and the problem of distractions, the art of reframing a highly emotional event, tips in constructing a proactive brain, and making memories durable." Newsday, 4/26/11 "A sophisticated blend of cutting-edge scientific research (written for nonscientists) and doable tips." Midwest Book Review, May 2011 "A highly recommended read for anyone who wants to put positive thinking to good business." Hearpreneur.com, 6/14/11 "Interesting anecdotes and exercises...The writers are also able to explain the brain without using too many medical terms to scare away or bore the person who just wants to be successful."

Overall is a good book with great ideas worthy you attention and time, you can skip the scientific explanations a grt into the point.
Back to the positive, this book was really well written and very interesting. I thought all the "tools" and "win factors" were very valid and certainly would help someone move towards success (see the table of contents for a summary). There were no Ra-Ra moments, instead there were solid and convincing scientific arguments which were new to me.
This discussion on what functional MRI's (and other studies) show about brain functioning were fascinating and really helped to illustrate and support the points made. They went into the right level of detail, good solid discussions without getting too long. As an example, I already knew that labelling emotions helped to calm myself down but I didn't understand why. The book gives an interesting discussion of a study showing how labelling emotions calmed down the amygdalae while brain areas involved controlling behaviour lit up. To quote "By simply labelling what they were feeling with words, they were better able to control the parts of their brain responsible for overreaction and call upon greater neural resources to help them stay in Emotional Balance'.
The other aspect I liked were the examples of people who demonstrate the "win factors" eg Whoopi Goldberg "the Queen of Resilience". Typically I don't enjoy these types of digressions, but they we un-usually well written and well integrated in this book.
If this is an area that is at all new to you, I would highly recommend this book.
For those of you like me it's still a useful book. It is a great re-cap and maintains interest due to the new discussions regarding brain function. I personally got an unexpected benefit from reading it. I am currently in a very long term project and I have been aware that I've recently lost my way/motivation. While reading this book and revising the "win factors" I realised that I have not been applying what I already knew to that particular project. Since reading this book I've started to apply the strategies and now it's all back on track.
