Neuroscientists have, in a sense, simply taken over the elite, almost clerical office once held by analysts. The language used to describe the brain is, if anything, more opaque than any of the old psychoanalytic terminology, which was itself so obscure that only trained professionals could wade through the literature. Most people never even bother to learn such terminology, deeming that, like the language of the computer scientists of the early 1970s, it is better left to the nerds.Determined to help us overcome our sense of helplessness in matters cranial, Ratey has shown that we can understand ourselves better and can learn quite a bit from the nerds. --Rob Lightner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book is an interesting read to anyone wanting to learn more about how their brain works without being overwhelmed by terminology. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Caroline North

Excellent read. Not a self help book. But anyone who has a deep interest in neuroscience would enjoy reading and mulling over the concepts that Dr Ratey talks about. Read morePublished 12 months ago by deepmoon
