Although the book is based on solid scientific scholarship, the author also interjects many stories that demonstrate how this science manifests itself in everyday life. These stories will help illuminate the concepts for anyone who does not have a background in the science of embodied cognition. Although some of the book's conclusions seem self-evident, the scientific evidence presented also reveals many conclusions that will be counterintuitive to most readers. This book surprises, delights, and illuminates many puzzling and pertinent life issues. You will come away with a much deeper understanding of how your body and mind can work together to create a much more rewarding and meaningful life for you and those you love. I highly recommend this book.
I paid $9:99 for this.
I see that my window for return closed on Nov. 6.
What a waste of my time and money!

The concept is not new, the Vedic scriptures, thousands of years old equate the mind with matter, with the material body. Here, in this book there is a a great deal of evidence to show that this is true.
Reading the book you will learn how the environment and the body have a powerful effect on the mind and how it works.
It is not for the casual reader, it's for someone who is interested. It's not for someone who has read a lot about the science of the mind/body, it's really for the newly initiated into the science of the mind/body connection.
