By J. W. Lee on January 3, 2009
Format: Paperback
As a part of my middle school gifted-students curriculum, we were required to read this book. 10 years later, it is still one of the most influential books I have come across in my entire life, and I still use many of the techniques the book talks about in its memory and note-taking chapters.

I strongly suggest getting this book and sitting down and reading through it again and again.

This book is informative and entertaining, and opens the door for one to further explore the fascinating brain. I've purchased it as a gift for adolescents and received positive feedback.

I picked this book up in a book store and read a couple pages in the first chapter. I was so amazed by how well the book was written and how informative it was I decided I had to buy it right away. This book should be available to all parents, highschool students, etc. Peter Russell is brilliant! I definitly recomend this book to everyone.

What a great book which far exceeded my expectation. Mr. Russell is a scientist who can communicate difficult scientific facts with simplicity

Hard to imagine not having this book. It explains so much about human nature and why we need help, brain help.
