• Is there a memory that torments you, or an irrational fear you can’t shake?
• Do you sometimes become unreasonably angry or upset and find it hard to calm down?
• Do you ever wonder why you can’t stop behaving the way you do, no matter how hard you try?
• Are you and your child (or parent, partner, or boss) locked in a seemingly inevitable pattern of conflict?

What if you could escape traps like these and live a fuller, richer, happier life? This isn’t mere speculation but the result of twenty-five years of careful hands-on clinical work by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. A Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Siegel is one of the revolutionary global innovators in the integration of brain science into the practice of psychotherapy. Using case histories from his practice, he shows you how to focus your attention on the internal world of the mind in a way that will literally change the wiring and architecture of your brain.

An audiobook as inspiring as it is informative, as practical as it is profound, Mindsight offers exciting new proof that we aren’t hardwired to behave in certain ways but instead have the ability to harness the power of our minds to resculpt the neural pathways of our brains in ways that will be life-transforming.

    " Step back and analyze your thought processes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noelle | 2/13/2014

    " I went to a mindfulness conference in the Spring of 2010 and Dr. Daniel Siegel was the keynote speaker. I bought this book at the conference, worth every penny. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Don | 2/11/2014

    " I thought that this author thought a whole lot more about his ideas than I did. I would put this book in the "pop psychology" category! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benny | 2/9/2014

    " Important. A good outline of the science of emotion, the brain's construction of reality, and the importance of the way we are aware of and how we explain our emotions that lead to healthy, balanced mental life. Try to read Siegel's other book "The Developing Mind", though not a requirement. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 2/9/2014

    " I take brain science / cognitive studies with a grain of salt. (To his credit, he does mention peptides, the heart, and other systems, with a sweep of his hand.) That said, Dr Danny Siegel's work is at the forefront of my attention, and this may be his most accessible for a mass audience. His illustration of the brain as your palm is worth a look, in and of itself. He finds the prefrontal cortex as regulating nine functions, and interesting what they are and how they interconnect; for instance positive "attachment" (as in Attachment Theory) and mindfulness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thea | 2/9/2014

    " This is a book I will read every year for the rest of my life. It focuses in on what happens in the brain when we are "irritated" and in our "fear" brains and what to do to get back to using our prefrontel cortex. One of the tips that I keep seeing over and over is mindfulness based stress reduction. This is the best book on the brain I have read this year! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 2/1/2014

    " Very interesting book that starts with an overview of brain anatomy that may slow down non-scientists. But PRESS ON, because the half dozen case studies are more than worth the anatomy lesson! In fact, they are enhanced by it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 1/27/2014

    " I really loved this book. He makes a convincing argument, rooted in brain plasticity and neurology for the use of psychotherapy. For the most part he encourages using mindfulness techniques, but in some of the things he doesn't say it also seems a more depth exploration is also helpful, depending upon the diagnosis. Overall a great book that explains neuropsychology and how psychotherapy can actually heal the brain. Wonderfully written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 1/19/2014

    " An outstanding book that describes how mindfulness can be used as a tool to improve the quality of life, both at the personal and relationship level. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 12/22/2013

    " A powerful, readable and instructive guide to the world of meditation, mindfulness, and the brain! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 10/24/2013

    " This is cutting edge! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Princessjay | 10/15/2013

    " Read this in one sitting. An excellent overview of mindfulness, lightly touching on neurological basis, with personal anecdotes and patient examples. Good quick read for someone seeking greater understanding of self and pursuit of happiness, recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck | 10/2/2013

    " Excellent. This book will help you to understand how your brain actually works and how to "tame" it when it tends toward the irrational. Will transform how you see yourself and your relationships. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Klbell2 | 9/30/2013

    " Thought the case studies were very interesting "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liam | 9/11/2013

    " title over promises and under delivers. basically about a doctor and his patients . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 8/11/2013

    " Great insights around what eastern medicine has known for 5000 paired with new breakthroughs in neuroscience and pysch. Compassionate and articulate case studies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Homy | 12/21/2011

    " Fascinating read if you like to have a deeper view into mind and the brain. Siegel is one of the most renowned experts in the topic and blends his scientific views with the wisdom of the east beautifully. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 8/2/2011

    " Too much neuroanatomical review, and way too much hammering the mediation point home. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 6/24/2011

    " The first half of the book blended the science of neuroplasticity with the psychology of living in the moment in order to optimize our human function. It was great. The second half of the book more or less consisted of case studies which I found less than interesting. Overall, I'd recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ren | 5/11/2011

    " Great insight into our own power to fix mental and emotional issues, offers us a way to own ourselves and our issues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverly | 3/31/2011

    " More of an over view of his results, but not as much detail on how to do it. "
