    Description

    From a pioneer in the field of mental health comes a groundbreaking book on the healing power of "mindsight", the potent skill that allows you to make positive changes in your brain - and in your life.

    Foreword by Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

    • Is there a memory that torments you, or an irrational fear you can't shake?
    • Do you sometimes become unreasonably angry or upset and find it hard to calm down?
    • Do you ever wonder why you can't stop behaving the way you do, no matter how hard you try?
    • Are you and your child (or parent, partner, or boss) locked in a seemingly inevitable pattern of conflict?

    What if you could escape traps like these and live a fuller, richer, happier life? This isn't mere speculation but the result of twenty-five years of careful hands-on clinical work by Daniel J. Siegel, MD. A Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Siegel is one of the revolutionary global innovators in the integration of brain science into the practice of psychotherapy. Using case histories from his practice, he shows how, by following the proper steps, nearly everyone can learn how to focus their attention on the internal world of the mind in a way that will literally change the wiring and architecture of their brain. 

    Through his synthesis of a broad range of scientific research with applications to everyday life, Dr. Siegel has developed novel approaches that have helped hundreds of patients. And now he has written the first book that will help all of us understand the potential we have to create our own lives. Showing us mindsight in action, Dr. Siegel describes:

    • a sixteen-year-old boy with bipolar disorder who uses meditation and other techniques instead of drugs to calm the emotional storms that made him suicidal
    • a woman paralyzed by anxiety, who uses mindsight to discover, in an unconscious memory of a childhood accident, the source of her dread
    • a physician - the author himself - who pays attention to his intuition, which he experiences as a "vague, uneasy feeling in my belly, a gnawing restlessness in my heart and my gut", and tracks down a patient who could have gone deaf because of an inaccurately written prescription for an ear infection
    • a twelve-year-old girl with OCD who learns a meditation that is "like watching myself from outside myself" and, using a form of internal dialogue, is able to stop the compulsive behaviors that have been tormenting her

    These and many other extraordinary stories illustrate how mindsight can help us master our emotions, heal our relationships, and reach our fullest potential.

    Good book to understand brain and emotions

    I enjoyed this book as it provides good insights on the relationship between ones mind and his/her ability to deal with emotions.

    However, it is not an easy one to read as Part I mainly focus on the structure and function of the brain and nervous system. It reminded me of my neurology’s classes.

    It helps you to better understand how the brain drives behavior and the impact of events that take place in our childhood.

    Using a series of case studies the author illustrates ways a brain can drive negative or destructive behavior and how using mindfulness it is possible to retrain the brain and develop more healthier patterns.

    Some of the cases have spoken to me at a personal level, and it has helped me to better understand myself but also other people’s behaviour.

    Lots of information, perhaps too much.

    While it's clear to me that the author is quite knowledgable when it comes to the psychotherapeutic and physiological aspects of the topic, my overall experience was one where I found my attention wondering amidst a sea of rationale, stories, descriptions, and advice. The information appears to be solid and Mr. Segel seems like a genuine, caring person with lots of experience and a great degree of knowledge. What was lacking, for me, was a clear description of the PRACTICE of "Mindsight." This book does a good job of making the argument for mindsight, talking about the many benefits, recalling stories having to do with various subject matter, etc., but when I was done listening to it, I didn't feel like he showed me how to use the information. This is more of a description of how the author thinks of and used Mindsight principles with his own clients, as opposed to helping the listener create a practice for actually personally transforming through the application of his methods. I found the use of 'story' and detailed descriptions of how the brain works overly complex and unnecessary. Still, the information is solid and holds promise as an integrated self-care practice. Perhaps a volume II will describe more fully how to actually practice Mindsight.

    DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK!

    Even if you hated your college psych classes, you will love this book. Siegel brilliantly shows--through case histories with his own patients--the connection between what we experienced as children and the physical responses our brains had to those experiences. And how it all adds up to how we act as adults.

    With all the talk about right brain/left brain going on these days, this books shows how we become more one than the other. And how you can change that if you need to.

    I especially love how he uses mindfulness meditation (nah, don't be scared) to help his patients get in touch with their inner workings. And what revelations come from it!

    This book is touching, funny, incisive, and truly beautiful.

    Best psychological model I've heard of..

    Essentially illuminating inner conversations which form personality traits and actions, Daniel's self-awareness meditation based therapy empowers clients to dissect their inner motivation for abnormal behavior. I've never heard someone get more clearly to the root of the problem. Grounded in reality and respectively fact, his case studies are relevant to the point that I have suggested this book to friends with exact same issues.

    Good Insight into the Brain

    I've been practicing something like what Siegel talks about for the past 4 months. People that know me well say that I'm a very different person; more relaxed and more focused. I'm surprised when friends will tell me this out of the blue.
    Listening to this book has helped put it all into context. Having practiced this, I'd have to agree that the author knows what he is talking about.
    Great book. Very insightful.

    Excellent Book, with one small exception

    I would have given this book 5 stars except that I found author's voice so distracting. He has a gravelly voice (think Rod Serling) and I kept wanting to clear my (his) throat and therefore found it a bit difficult to concentrate on the content of what he was saying. That said, it was an excellent book for those who enjoy case studies and want to know how Mindfulness is practiced. Other readers found the explanations of various brain functions to be a bit heavy-going. I felt it answered exactly those questions I had been wondering about. I look forward to more from Dr. Siegel, but hope next time he opts for a professional reader.

    Great book, must read

    Truly enjoyed this book. Not one to read unless you can give your undivided attention but definitely worth your time. Looking forward to listening to it again! Fascinating theories of the mind and great neurological explanations for why we react the way we do. Made me want to read more of Siegel's work!

    Great book a little to much detail.

    This is a great book about why we feel things and how to understand them. I found a little too much detail in the naming parts of the brain. I would have given it 5 stars, but for the mono tone voice of the reader. Daniel is no doubt a very good clinician and his voice would be very calm in that context but not for keeping the listeners interest. I will however be listening to this book several time to get the most out of it.

    Excellent combination...

    of sociology, psychology and neurology to help us understand how the neuroplasticity of the brain is influenced by and also influences all of our daily interactions and how we can take advantage of neuroplasticity to enrich our lives and those of others. That this book was endorsed by Daniel Goleman (Social Intelligence--Emotional Intelligence) was a big factor for me going in. Siegel extends Goleman's work, forging further ahead into the neurological realms to show us how our biology works in conjunction with our most intimate, and most casual interpersonal and social encounters--and what we can do to better them. I had just finished Doidge's The Brain That Changes Itself before beginning this book, and I recommend that they be taken together, in whichever order. Also helpful would be Sapolsky and Vishton's Great Courses lectures on the brain, also available on Audible.

    Good Story, Bad Voice

    Fascinating information. The voice of the reader was robotic and had a distracting reverberation and made it distracting and hard to focus on the material.
