Description

The Buddha and other great teachers were born with brains built essentially like anyone else’s - and then they changed their brains in ways that changed the world.

Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you, too, can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love, and wisdom.

Buddha’s Brain draws on the latest research to show how to stimulate and strengthen your brain for more fulfilling relationships, a deeper spiritual life, and a greater sense of inner confidence and worth. You’ll learn how to activate the brain states of calm, joy, and compassion instead of worry, sorrow, and anger. This clear, down-to-earth book is filled with practical tools and skills that you can use in daily life to tap the unused potential of your brain and rewire it over time for greater well-being and peace of mind.

Neurophysiological Explanation

In Buddha's Brain, Hanson and Mendius relate the emerging knowledge of neurological science to the teachings of the Buddha. Audible makes a number of very good books available on neurophysiology and neuroplasticity and this is a welcome addition to that group. It is helpful and provides ample insights to perhaps make it worth the listener’s time. Unfortunately, for me at least, the approach was too superficial to be helpful. The book sheds a little light on the teachings of the Buddha, a little understanding into how we can relax and the neurological response, and a little insight into what this all means neurophysiologically. The result, personally, was a superficial presentation of all these topics. If you are interested in a contemporary interpretation of Buddhist practice, this book could be informative. If you are interested in where current scientific inquiry is leading us in brain science, there are other books you might seek out first from Audible. The book is well organized and written. The narration of Alan Jones is very good.

Hellllooooo? Is a robot narrating this??

I was really looking forward to listening to this book, as I really like Rick Hanson's work and what he has to offer. Unfortunately, the narrator of this book is an unbelievable bore; he reads the book in a way that makes it almost impossible for the listener(me) to become (and stay) engaged. Who chose this robot, I mean guy, to read???

Narrator ruins it. Get the book, not the audio.

I'm famiilar with Rick Hanson and admire his work very much. I recently attended his all-day seminar on the Science of Well-Being, and he's a great speaker. Sadly, Rick Hanson did not narrate his own audio book. Instead, the book is narrated by a man who doesn't seem to understand anything about the subject matter, and who presents the material in the most bland, stiff and least engaging way possible. Very unlike the real author who is a great speaker. Therefore, I am very disappointed by the audio book version of Buddha's Brain. I wish I had gotten the regular print version instead.

Monotone reading of book

Book is good but should have been read by author.
Lacks emotion/passion necessary to hold my attention while listening.
Bland and monotone.

Get the book & CDs instead

This book is purely wonderful. It is filled with cutting edge information about the brain and studies that show how meditation changes the brain in positive ways. I have read the (paper) book several times. I have also listened to the original CDs that came out to accompany the book, which were read by the authors. The book and CDs are among the most treasured books/CDs in my collection. Learning ways to calm oneself through specific techniques that not only give short term, but also long term relief and happiness is a powerful experience.

However, for reasons I can not possibly imagine, something happened between the CDs coming out (read by authors) and the audible version--read by a different narrator. It may not matter to someone who has never heard the originals before, but I love especially to listen to Rick Hanson--and it is too jarring to have to listen to a different person narrate this. (To my ear, it is read too rapidly and too flatly). The material is great--but not this narration. (Or not to someone who has listened to the authors themselves). If this is your first exposure to this book and authors, it might not matter, but it did to me, since I am long familiar with the voices of the authors themselves, and it seemed a sad switch.

A must for brain injury recovery

Awesome explanation of how we are connected to every thing that is. The totality of life as a whole.

Good content, boring narrator

I like the content, it's good. However, the narrator's voice cannot hold my attention.

Best listened to @ 2x speed

The content requires little deep thought or processing and is presented in a very gradual fashion. The narrator stretches a 2 hour read into a 6 plus hour listen. If you value your time listen @ 2x speed.

A decent "listen" ... I enjoyed it.

This was a very refreshing and palatable "listen". Which was a great suprise, as they cover quite a bit of useful material, effortlessly. You will listen to this more than once.

First Half Great, Second Half Not as Much

I thought the first half of the book that explains the neurophysiology of emotions was well-done and very helpful, particularly from the meditators point of view. The second half of the book seemed to have way more meditation instructions (which I've seen explained better elsewhere) which diffused the understanding of what's going on in the brain. And frankly, the narrator got hard to listen to over time. I found myself not being as mindful to listening to the book as I had intended.
