A manual for relating to the brain in a revolutionary new way, Super Brain shows you how to use your brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth.

Two pioneers, bestselling author and physician Deepak Chopra and Harvard Medical School professor Rudolph E. Tanzi, one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s, have merged their wisdom and expertise for a bold new understanding of the “three-pound universe” and its untapped potential.

In contrast to the “baseline brain” that fulfills the tasks of everyday life, Chopra and Tanzi propose that, through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain can be taught to reach far beyond its present limitations. “We are living in a golden age for brain research, but is this a golden age for your brain?” they ask.
 
Super Brain explains how it can be, by combining cutting-edge research and spiritual insights, demolishing the five most widespread myths about the brain that limit your potential, and then showing you methods to:

-Use your brain instead of letting it use you
-Create the ideal lifestyle for a healthy brain
-Reduce the risks of aging
-Promote happiness and well-being through the mind-body connection
-Access the enlightened brain, the gateway to freedom and bliss
-Overcome the most common challenges, such as memory loss, depression, anxiety, and obesity
 
Your brain is capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. Through a new relationship with your brain you can transform your life. In Super Brain, Chopra and Tanzi guide you on a fascinating journey that envisions a leap in human evolution. The brain is not just the greatest gift that Nature has given us. It’s the gateway to an unlimited future that you can begin to live today.

    " It was such a good book I bought a copy of it so I can read it again. Great insights into the human brain and mind from a Harvard neurologist and Deepack Chopra. It makes me want to pick up another of Chopra's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 2/15/2014

    " Espouses the theory that your mind controls your brain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Bourassa | 2/14/2014

    " Liked it. Has good exercises to improve brain function. But blurs science and religous teaching, in ways that are not necessary to make the points sought, and that confuse and reduce the impact of the positions taken. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jyoti | 2/2/2014

    " Superb book on neuro-spirituality. The ideas and facts illustrated in the book opened my mind. Helped me to relook on my perspectives. "

    " Amazing read, easy, quick, thoughtful and straight to the point. Even better, now I have a Super Brain! -kidding "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William Crosby | 1/23/2014

    " A mish mash of earlier Chopra books with some neuroscience thrown in. I appreciated the physical stuff. Sometimes the abstract mindfulness, intuition, meditation mantras get tedious and too difficult to grasp. A little physicality mixed in with the philosophy is useful to me if nothing more than to give me a break/balance. Still, I disagreed with stuff said about pills vs talk therapy (sometimes fundamental chemistry issues simply cannot be helped with talking). Also, according to his listed criteria, I am not intuitive at all. Could be so. It just seemed his criteria were limiting. There seemed to be some interchange between the words "progress" and "evolution." Total disagreement there. As I was reading, sometimes I was thinking 1 star, sometimes 4 star. It is an okay book. If you are not into neuroscience just skip straight to part 3. There is still some quantum stuff which could overwhelm/baffle some people (it baffles scientists). Just read through it to get the general idea. "
