Top Customer Reviews
There is a lot of science at the beginning of the book, but by the end, I appreciated why the author was so insistent on scientific backing for what the book says. It is astonishing information. There is a lot of mind-provoking information in it. It goes to show, despite how much we are inundated with news, data and media, just how narrow and blinkered our views are, and how little we know of our world.
It packs a huge emotional punch. After being carried away by beautifully written stories of military conquests, phenomenal entrepreneurs and ordinary geniuses, I was not prepared for the emotional hit of the last two chapters. No book has spoken to me quite like in this way. I cried.
I love that it's different from others in its genre, stands on its own. It is not an infomercial for additional seminars, courses or workshops. The author has made sure that you get everything you need in this highly informative book.
This is not your ordinary read: this book really makes you think about a lot of things that is happening in your life and things that has happened. It is about our brain, and how it has been hijacked by the media, advertisement and cultural mindsets. We have allowed Hollywood to dictate to us and after awhile we start living what has been said or shown to us on the screen. The author has done extensive research and presented quite a few examples in everyday life to support her findings. This is very powerful information, as we read and see how the brain has been program to think like the world likes you to think, but the good news is that it can be un- programmed of the bad thinking and reprogrammed with the right stuff. There are quite some remarkable examples and it makes you wonder why only now. This is a book to help you look differently to your brain: that organ that sits between your ears, so if you are really interested in getting your mind reprogrammed then this is a good book to read.
Well done Nekesa Ouma-Namulu this is a well written, thought provoking read and user manual I can go back to often. You certainly opened my eyes.
What an amazing book. Exactly how we underestimate the power of our brains and sometimes get things so wrong is expertly explained. I found the chapters on how the brain rewires itself absolutely fascinating. It was also strangely comforting to read how the investment scams and swindles that we fall for today have been going on for hundreds of years, taking in even the best of minds (the Bronte sisters, who knew?). Sure helps protect one from making the same mistakes. The last section, however about recreating your world was the most powerful one for me. These are powerful, powerful words and already I feel like I see the world differently. I do agree that this is a powerful book, the best I've read in years.
