With The Wisdom of Your Cells, this internationally recognized authority on cellular biology takes listeners on an in-depth exploration into the microscopic world, where new discoveries and research are revolutionizing the way we understand life, evolution, and consciousness.
In this full-length audio course, Dr. Lipton shares his lucid and startling insights about the building blocks of life, and how each one of our cells has far greater innate intelligence than we once believed.
It is understandable that this audiobook should have both passionate positive and negative reviews: it offers a genial new interpretation of biology, evolution and history, with ramifications into medicine and psychology.
An earlier reviewer remarked the ideas contained here would never be published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Indeed! - these journals do not publish personal interpretaions. A book (or in this case, an audiobook), and not a peer-reviewed journal, is the perfect medium for this kind of work.
I am an M.D., I was marveled by this work and highly recomend it to everyone.

Since the negative review writers here boast that they have their PhDs, I will mention my creds. I have a BS in Chemistry and an MS in Public Health. I'll get my PhD in a science, which in my view is not a huge deal!
Bruce Lipton is amazing to me. This book really explains why the medical establishment has no idea how so many of our illnesses are caused. If you don't know what I am talking about, just sign up for some Anatomy & Physiology classes at your local community college. Take Physiology, Pathophysiology, and Microbiology. Discover that professors all around the country, including medical school professors, are teaching this dis-ease and that dis-ease, but when they address the cause, they teach "We don't know what turns the genes on!" Bruce Lipton offers the brilliant idea that the internal environment and our perceptions (stress, fear, worry, etc.) are what determines what genes are turned on, and thus what proteins are made, which determines function. His idea that the cell membrane is more analogous to the brain and the nucleus is more analogous to the gonads is truly a ingenius paradigm shift! A brilliant read! Loved every word of it!

I really enjoyed this Audiobook. I'm a nurse and I've always wondered why some people get sick and others don't. Some eat well, excercise and do all that stuff right and have a heart attack while smokers and junk food eaters do fine. Of course, that's not always the case but this book explains why it can be the case. Shows how powerful stress is in our bodies and how our fear based society contributes to so much disease.
I definitely see why the pharmaceutical companies wouldn't like this book as it shows your belief in medicine is more important than the medicine itself. As a nurse I've witnessed this first hand.
This is a wonderful book and recommend it to anyone with an open mind.

I have read many books on this context and I have to say the breakdown that is presented here is one of the best . I have read all the reviews here and see where a lot of the people who wrote a negative review are hard core by the book science believers, even though some do have open minds and can relate and some who have no background in science don't seem to see the connective bridge. As for me, I livebthe connection and the explanations and concepts that even though there is no proven fact in some I of it as of yet, you have too have an open mind. And to some out there the world is not flat!

I found the material to be riveting and the presentation to be easy to follow and logical. Dr. Lipton is able to simplify complex ideas and summarize along the way so the listener does not get lost. I am very glad I purchased this and will look for other material by him.

If what Lipton says is true, and one should be able to check the facts, his ideas here are intriguing and they could possibly change the way you look at life. I am one-third the way through the book and only stopped because I had to go to work--I find it very compelling listening. Some of his ideas thus far resonate with spiritual ideas of William James, another scientist who valued spiritual experience. Other ideas remind me of what little I know about quantum science and how it also supports a spiritual interpretation of the universe, at least somewhat. The first ten minutes of the book grabbed me and would not let go...

Bruce has some good points of view here that you should know about. He introduces new accents and possibilities on how your attitude can affect your cells and overall health. This is another topic on the leading edge of science and opinion and I believe it has a lot of merit. If you are open to new ideas to help yourself, then read and consider what he has to say and how you can reprogram for the better.

I just read the above reviews and obviously Lipton was right that conventional mainstream doctors and scientist are stuck in their dogma.
I am only part of the way through this book and find it compelling. Lipton is so passionate about what he speaks I have not doubt that there is a lot of truth in what he says, probably more truth than what we are fed by mainstream mentallity everyday. I thoroughly enjoy his captivating ideas.

Let me first state a strong endorsement for the scientific content "Wisdom" features. There is much to discover and explore here and I'm looking forward pursuing a number of exciting hypothesis and research efforts of which I'd been heretofore unaware. Sprinkled throughout the talk are an abundance of genuinely worthwhile concepts and lines of inquiry I found highly compelling.
The downside is the author/speaker's style, which sounds like nothing so much as a 7th graders unrelenting run-on sentence, the totality of which is intended as his first blackboard presentation in science class. I winced and groaned as the good doctor droned from unrestrained, apparently totally unrecognized self-congratulations to comically absurd total non-sequiturs presented as stunning revelations. all elocuted with a nails-on-chalkboard style of a breathless dillettante with a limited vocabulary practiced only on a hapless younger sibling immobilized by two broken legs, arms, and a full body cast. I shuddered my way through thanks to those frequent nuggets I found so compelling and uncurled from my fetal position with a long list of hard-won topics for study. I must say I found myself, at the last, liking this man for his sheer enthusiasm but hoping for a voice coach next time. Please.

When I bought this book, I was looking for some passionate scientific news. Well, I got the passionate - Liptons talks quite emphatically about all the new revelations he has experienced in science and his way of relating that science to his inner life. Now, I love stuff like this, but it was way too much fluff or basic high school biology and too little story about the really cool, cutting edge stuff he touches. He speaks like every little thing he is saying is a revelation, which is quite annoying to me, as someone well versed in science. I'm amazed I got through this book. There were two scientific tidbits that were revelations and that I quite enjoyed learning, but man, what a lot to slog through to get those!
I wish the author the best in his science and his talks, but definitely the style was not for me!

Ich habe so veil gelernt!, am interessanter fand ich den Begriff "epigenetics".

Sehr gut und angenehm vorgelesen, aber der Inhalt reißt mich nicht vom Hocker. Es werden wissenschaftliche Fachbegriffe mit esoterischen Theorien durcheinander geworfen, alles stark ideologisch geprägt - diese Medizin will ich nicht einfach so schlucken. Schade, ich hatte mir mehr davon erwartet. Hätte vielleicht vorher mal Amazon-Rezensionen lesen sollen.
