There's been a major breakthrough in the world's oldest research experiment. For over 2,500 years, Buddhist meditators have investigated the human psyche. Now, with the help of modern neuroscience, we have gained an unprecedented understanding of how the brain responds to meditation practice - which gives you powerful tools for changing your own brain for more happiness, love, and wisdom. With The Enlightened Brain, Dr. Rick Hanson shows you how to restore the calm, contented, and caring state that is your brain's natural condition.
Includes guided practices for strengthening mindfulness, bringing peace to anger and anxiety, deepening meditation, releasing ego, and much more.

Would recommend for everyone
Understanding everything that Rick Hanson says , he has a lovely relaxing voice.
The Meditation Exercises are understandable and able to follow along
Would recommend for bed
Take your time, you may need to re listen to some chapters to get to grip with the understanding of the topic.
Wonderful and fantastic read,
Well worth a credit
It's always a joy to listen to Rick Hanson. He is warm, gracious and wise. His advice is steeped in a combination of neuropsychology and Buddhist faith. This, for me, is perfect.
Not really, what I was hoping for I had hoped for more science and information. What I got was mostly eastern philosophy and guided meditations with I light sprinkling of science.
The narration and audio quality are both good, but the book was dull and not what the title advertised.
The clarity of his presentation. Explanations of neuropsychology and plasticity of the brain were very helpful, and not too difficult to grasp. The practices were easy to follow and his tone of voice and pace were appropriate.
I feel very encouraged by his tuition that there is a way to help with old psychological pain and to make changes and deal proactively with stress. I intendto continue to repeat practices and meditate daily.
"repeat but still good"
I'm starting to feel like if you have read one Hanson book you have read them all. his books all have the same things. at least the ones I've read. but it's still good information
"i love this book"
i absolutely love this book. listened to it a couple of times, and went back and created a yoga class sequence for a student of mine that was 10 weeks. i grew, and he grew and loved it as well. great things to take into everyday life, and great ways to get the right perspective for breakthroughs and "revelations of the obvious".
