Most importantly it's written by two brilliant and forward thinking scholars. The first being, Deepak Chopra, M.D. a New York Time best-selling author and author of numerous books who's known around the world for his work on the brain, mind-body connection, consciousness, spirituality, and Quantum Physics.The second, Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi a Harvard Professor who was a pioneer in Alzheimer's research and being one of the co-discoverers of the first Alzheimer's disease gene.
As quoted in the book "Every day you step into the invisible firestorm of electrical and chemical activity that is the brain's environment. You act as leader, inventor, teacher, and user of your brain, all at once.
As leader, you hand out the day's orders to your brain.
As inventor, you create new pathways and connections inside your brain that didn't exist yesterday.
As teacher, you train your brain to learn new skills.
As user, you are responsible for keeping your brain in good working order."
I have to say that this one is greatest books I've read on the topic of the brain because the two authors go extremely in-depth into the working of the brain, and they also give you tools that you can implement into your life today.
It's broken up into three parts. Here's a very basic summary.
Part 1 DEVELOPING YOU GREATEST GIFT
Which goes into great detail about the latest advancements in science that explain how the brain functions. It also talks about the five myths of the brain.
Part 2: MAKING REALITY
This part gives you information and knowledge to literally work on changing your brain from negatives states of mind to positive states of mind.
Part 3:MYSTERY AND PROMISE
I thoroughly enjoyed this part because its goes into the biggest idea in all of science. Something to which I'm fascinating with, the question being "How does this three pound brain produce consciousness?"
I think this is an incredible book that anyone can use to increase more positive states of mind. I've read hundreds of books on the brain and I think this one is one of the best because it gives you tools on how to work on changing your brain immediately.
Beginning with the latest brain science in neuroplasticity the book convincingly shows that that we have the ability to influence our own brains and thus can improve our own well being.
The next part of the book moves from science to conjecture. At first making claims that seem reasonable. Claims that may very well be true, but are based on “wisdom traditions” rather than scientific evidence.
In last and most disappointing part of the book, it uses Ray Tallis’ false logic and straw man arguments to show that the mind cannot be contained within the brain and therefore there must be some sort of external power that drives our mind. It is ironic that there are examples elsewhere in the book that show how certain superstitions have been replaced with scientific understanding, yet when it comes to our mind being contained within the organ that is our brain, the authors leave no room for an enhanced scientific understanding that makes that possible.
Bottom line: The first part is informative and worth the read. The rest of the book provides an interesting theory, but not an evidence based conclusion as it seems to claim.
I grew up believing that the nerve paths of my brain were fixed and immutable. Science told us brain cells died over our lifetime and could not be regenerated, period. Super Brain helped me understand that’s just not true!
I recently wrote an article on My Philosophy for Mental Fitness for HappyLiving.com. I credit Super Brain for evolving my philosophy to include "rewiring". My philosophy for mental fitness is simple: 1) feed it, 2) rest it, 3) exercise it, & 4) rewire it.

God....mmmm God has been The Natural Life Force to me..but I do accept human ability to connect with one another on a nonverbal level over distances... Jewish prayers that refer to God of the Universe could be
Interpreted as a Universal mind perhaps. The which came first seems like the wrong question...
