    " Not *bad*... but not gripping either; I kept having to force myself to read even just a few pages. And life's really too short for that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyra | 12/3/2013

    " Interesting book on brain activity as it relates to behavior. Hard to plow through though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexis | 10/12/2013

    " This is one of the most excellent books on mindful meditation and learning. It is also great in that it gives examples of the benefits and also explains the real effects in the brain. Whats more is that it explains and gives resources on how to teach and do it yourself "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L | 10/4/2013

    " A very tough read in parts, but this book was incredibly informative, transformative, insightful and practical. A brilliant review and integration of neuroscientific literature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 7/8/2013

    " Was only able to get about 70 pages in, but so far the book was pretty informative. A scientific view of the benefits (and drawbacks) to practicing mindful meditation. Can't say much more than that till I get another chance to borrow it again or pickup my own copy when it's in paperback. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 5/3/2012

    " I love the philosophy behind this book, but I couldn't get past the language being used. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chuck | 1/18/2012

    " I love this topic, and have enjoyed other similar books about neuroscience, dualism, neural plasticity, consciousness, etc. This is a super topic, but I found the book kind of tedious, so I don't know. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood for it. I didn't finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 AJ | 9/9/2011

    " A wonderful overview of mindfulness. The author includes current research, and expounds upon the scientific aspects of awareness. I enjoyed the section on mindful education and believe it holds great significance to understanding the deficits of current approach towards education. "

    " Don't waste time reading this: read SIEGEL. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maggie | 1/30/2010

    " I wasn't able to get very far with this book. I renewed it once and realized that it just wasn't going to happen. I think it was a little too technical for what I wanted. I like the overall concept of the mindful brain but don't necessarily need to know all the physical details. "

    " great insights into interface of mindfulness and social awareness (and "attachment' theory) leading towards a multi-skull social brain perspective.

    particular breakthrough findings on nine functions of prefrontal cortex

    clear plainspoken prose style, well-organized "
