The Gift in You, by Dr. Caroline Leaf it one of the most important and significant books on brain structure, brain functions and the connection between our brain and our gifts and calling in life. Dr. Leaf clearly and scienficially proves the 7 pilliars upon which intelligence is built upon and provides massive hope to a world full of people who consider themselves insignificant, stupid and worthless. As a doctor of industrial organizational psychology, clinical psychology, theology and marketing I will definitely use and promote this Biblically verifiable research and data with my students and clients. If you are serious about understanding exactly what your gift and purpose in life is and if you want to clearly see the mechanics of the process, then purchase The Gift in You, by Dr. Caroline Leaf.

"It's true, we all think and see the world differently. We have 7 layers of thinking: interpersonal, intrapersonal, visual/spatial, music. math/logic, tactile, and linguistic.

Each one of us starts with a dominant layer and then uses the other layers in their own sequential order. Paradoxically, by practicing on our favorite and dominant thinking layer will increase the performance of the weaker layers.

It's wonderful to know we are all unique and appreciate the differences in one another.

This book can be especially helpful to students and adults to understand the right career path. For example, if your dominant thinking is interpersonal (people person)and your least dominant is math/logic, then the last thing you want to pursue is engineering. By doing what we love and comes easy to us, will naturally lead us to a happier life style.

Take the 210 questionnaire to determine your strengths and know the gift within yourself."

The Gift in you is truly life changing. In this book you will find that you have been gifted in a very special unique way by God. Yet even more importantly you will learn how it continues to be robbed from you due to your own thinking. If you have ever asked yourself, "what is wrong with me, why can't I just GET IT!" or "Why do I have to continue to learn this lesson" this is the book for you! Dr. Lief walks this out for us to understand and know we have the choice as soon as our thought comes to mind! This is also the best gift you could give to anyone that is struggling with finding who they are OR has issues with the enemy in their thought life!!!

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind! The Apostle Paul's words come alive in this fascinating book by Dr. Caroline Leaf. She shares her expertise on neuroscience with warmth and relevance and explains the realities of renewing your mind. After reading her book you will better understand what occurs in the mind when we take every thought captive and bring it into obedience with Christ. She also explains the seven pillars of wisdom in our brains and how the sequence of their activation forms our individuality, or gifts - and that created by God!

This book includes 7 lists of questions which are designed to help you identify the dominant areas of your brain. Stimulating the dominant areas of the brain enhances the ability of the weaker ones. So... that's why I like listening to jazz or classical music especially when I need to organize. (The creatively abstract and happy sounds of Swing Jazz from the 1930's help me the most.) Similarly, that's the reason I turn down the volume in the car so I can "think" to drive when redundant music is playing. You are unique and you will find your own hidden gifts. The information in this book gives you the mental tools to become a better you.

I'm so glad I purchased this book! The author is incredibly knowledgeable about how we think; she outlines "The Seven Pillars of Thought" in this book. The insights in the book helped me solidify what I have really always known about me. Which has then given me motivation to redirect my work life to a path that's more suited to how I'm already 'wired.' This would be a valuable tool for anyone. I've mentioned it to a couple of friends and co-workers; one of whom is a therapist, and they would both love to read it. I highly recommend it!

Working with children and students is often frustrating when they don't achieve what I know is possible. As I read the pages of The Gift in You: ... by Dr. Caroline Leaf I could see where simple questions and observations on my part, could reveal to me what I could do differently with each student to bring out his/her unique gifts. The brain research Dr. Leaf quotes and references is extremely helpful which I intend to use to do my own research. Anyone who works with students - young or old - can benefit from Dr. Leaf's insight into the science of thought especially if you hold a Biblical worldview. I have several colleagues who would also enjoy this information.
