    " Book talks about, how brain function ? How to take care of brain? got more insight into brain function. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allie Smith | 2/9/2014

    " Lots of interesting information. Sometimes a little technical and repetitive...but a keeper, for life, for reference. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanne | 2/2/2014

    " What words could I say to recommend this book as strongly as possible to you? Do you value your brain? If so, read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 1/31/2014

    " I read this book (as an audiobook of CDs) shortly after reading Dr. Amen's other similar book, Magnificent Mind at Any Age, which was about twice as long but covered more material and in greater depth. Despite the fact that CYBCYB was shorter and somewhat less in depth, it was nonetheless very worthwhile reading. Yes, it was sort of like hearing MMaAA again, but it was shorter, more to the point, and a very good, still interesting review of much of the same material covered in MMaAA. In fact, I sort of wish I had read CYBCYB first as an introduction to the more extensive coverage in MMaAA, and although the topics were similar, the anecdotes were not the same, so it was further interesting reading (listening). If you a already truly serious about taking care of your brain, I would go with the longer MMaAA, but if you are just getting into it, you might want to start with this one CYBCYB because it is a bit more manageable. BTW, CYBCYB is read by the author himself, but MMaAA is not. MMaAA gives quite extensive information on which parts of the brain do what and what effects occur when there is too much or too little stimulation going on in those parts. It also gives a lot of information about what nutritional supplements one can take to stimulate or calm down those particular areas to product a salubrious effect. CYBCYB gives some of the same information but not in quite the same depth. With either book one could start treating oneself with supplements to improve brain function in certain areas of the brain to produce focused effects (at least in theory); I just think the longer MMaAA is probably a bit more thorough. I find Dr. Amen's writings very approachable, and despite the fact that I have medical background to help me along, I think that even a layreader would find either of these books fascinating and extremely useful, assuming one had a concern about the health and continued development of their brain and its future functioning. "

    " There was a lot in this book that was not new information. Yes, I know should drink more water, stay away from alcohol, take omega 3 supplements, get more sleep, meditate everyday and so on. Most of it was fairly intuitive. And i got slightly annoyed since no one call follow ALL these rules ALl the time (well not me) However, I did like reading about the scientific evidence behind how the brain and body connect with respect to all the things we should and should not be doing for our health. I also found a lot of the information on supplements helpful. I think it's important to read these types of books once in a while to jump start a much needed health kick or address some not so good habits that are having a negative impact on your life in some way. Dr. amens research is very interesting and useful. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know WHY we should be doing all of the things we hear about everyday and how they directly impact our body. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marylou | 1/15/2014

    " I didn't have time to finish this book ... so much detail but it was so full of information. I'm just going to buy it or have someone give it to me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 1/6/2014

    " Since I read the audiobook version, it was at times hard to follow and seemed a bit repetitive too. I do however have a better outlook on how to change things with myself in a more natural way. It was the book I needed at this time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katya | 1/4/2014

    " Don't hit your head on the wall or anything else. It's bad for you. Don't overeat, exercise, take supplements. A long list of supplements. Spend all your money on the supplements. And then start to meditate. Because what else is left to do? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 11/25/2013

    " Interesting research and conclusions about the brain-body connection. I skimmed much of this book as it was repetitious, but still gained some insights beneficial to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kent | 6/15/2013

    " Apparently the answer to almost every brain/body affliction is: exercise and meditate, every day. It fixes ADD, bad skin, mood swings, anxiety, depression, bad teeth (j/k, you still have to brush). So skip the book and get to it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 6/9/2013

    " This man, his research and findings are amazing,empowering and fascinating. His book(s) shed light on the science behind what we already know to be true in self-care, real brain scans included! Read it, and or, catch him on PBS. Let me know what you think! "

    " The supplement listings are helpful, but aside from the initial idea that brain injury can affect our eating habits this book rehashed the same common sense ideas. "

    " This is a really interesting read. It makes one more aware of the impact the brain has on everyday life and how activity deficiencies in certain areas of the brain can really throw the whole body out of whack. I recommend it. "

    " SPECT - a diagnostic tool. Will most likely be taken totally for granted in the future, but for now it's mostly unheard of. The more accurate the diagnosis - the better the treatment. "
