From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls mindsight, our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can rewire crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

Based on thirty years of work with patients and on research drawn from nearly a dozen scientific fields, Mindsight brings these concepts alive through vivid case histories that show what happens when mindsight is missing, and how it can be strengthened in nine essential areas. Listeners of My Stroke of Insight or The Brain that Changes Itself will discover new ideas about memory, emotion, trauma and brain-mind integration - plus a richer sense of their own humanity.

    " 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 King | 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 Roberts | 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 Leroy | 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 Douglas | 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 Phillips | 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 Culp | 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 Morris | 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 Krempels | 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 Strynatka | 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 T | 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/9/2011

    " Psychiatry meets neuroscience, and the world completely changes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 4/14/2011

    " very educational, evokes a lot of personal introspection and increased awareness when interacting with others. great book "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Branden | 1/17/2011

    " Easy to read science based backing of mindfulness and ways of integrating the facets of the mind for better mental health. Not woo-woo science at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cameron | 11/14/2010

    " This book was very insightfull however I would not recommend this as a self help book. This is a serious and quite in depth book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Garymmark | 11/8/2010

    " Most transformational book I have ever read. "
