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.

This not a book for the gullible but it is thought provoking. I read it as one persons honest attempt to explain reality and the human condition. Orthodox scientific believers will be offended by it's leaps of imagination. If you believe that the search for truth can only be pursued within the bounds of our current scientific conventions you will be probably feel threatened. The scientific method is crucial in the search for answers about the nature of reality and the technology that enables us to look inside a living cell could not exist without it. But all the science in the world, past , present or future cannot address the fundamental questions without the power of the human imagination. This book deserves to be read.
"This is an insight into science at its peak"
This is ground breaking science as a researcher I identify with his methods, too flexible for some who like to think of the world as flat or rigid, this book will give your ideology and world view a workout. Dont read it if you are rigid and do not understand that science is imagination and creativity. Einstein would visualize what it was like to travel on a sunbeam at speed of light and this book helps you visualize the life of the cell. If your veiw of science is not developed enough you will believe that we scientists just see the world as rigid laws and think we understand how everything works. Wake up to how scientists really think. Creatively, imaginatively and a little bit flawed. Dont believe everything but listen to his ideas and develop your own theories. My rating excellent. Graduate level thought brought to man in street.
It always amazes me how people stuck in thought processes are unwilling to accept new information...similar to religion. The first reviewer demonstrates this perfectly.
Bruce Lipton was a cell biologist for 30 years and began to discover cell behaviour that couldn't be explained through existing notions of newtonian science. He was a medical professor who began feeling very unconfortable teaching his medical students information which he found to be flawed through his own studies and had to leave because of it. He is no madman with wild ideas based on nothing.
I found this book fantastic and really does begin to bridge the gap between science and spirituality. Would highly recommend along with 'the field' and 'the holographic universe'
DEFINITELY A MUST READ BOOK!!! Explain many important things very clearly. Lots of background information. You may disagree with a couple of things but it will make you THINK AND UNDERSTAND MANY THINGS. WELL DONE DR. BRUCE LIPTON!!!!
"Wow a must purchase"
Providing hours of juicy cutting edge knowledge proving through years of research we are not a victim of our genes but rather as energy beings we are conscious creators of our lives and demonstrates how we have the ability to change our genetic coding.
The narration is upbeat and lively as well as being very clear and logical.
I would highly recommend.
I find pleasure in opening my mind to fresh ideas in an endeavour to understand life from different perspectives.
Bruce Lipton has certainly inspired new trains of thought for me and has opened up an endless range of possibilites to consider.
If you are of an open and enquiring mind then you are likely to enjoy this very much, in which case.... Listen and make your own mind up.
I have listened to this three times now. I am not a scientist. Four decades ago I was compelled to take Biology, Physics and Chemistry at school. Teacher after teacher mercilessly hammered the point that these subjects were dull, lacking in creativity, imagination, insight and above all - no 'classical' experiment we copied ever replicated the 'correct' results. However much I wished to cheer for the trail-blazing scientists who featured in my History and Philosophy lessons, actual laboratory outcome after outcome was just so much garbage. Little wonder that for every scientist who sticks their head above the parapet and makes a statement, 600 rent-a-gobs can be hired to 'prove' otherwise. I don't pretend to understand most of what he says, but Bruce Lipton speaks with enthusiasm (real passion) and integrity about something that affects us all. I loved every minute of it. Indeed, at no time did it sound scripted, academic or authoritative (in a detrimental sense). We're told we each have trillions of cells. I would encourage everyone to hear what Bruce Lipton has to say about them.
"Bruce Lipton:- The Wisdom of Selling Out"
This book contains much that is interesting and true. However, the bits that are true are not interesting, and the bits that are interesting are not true. In fact, I want my money back!
We desperately need a re-enchanted holistic science to come from prominent scientists and the comparison to Carl Sagan or Stephen Hawking, led me to expect some genuine new insights into cell biology.
What you get however, is highly inaccurate high school biology, pop-psychology and physics, spiced with New Age talk about "Energies" and "Signals". Wherever it is possible to mis-represent, Lipton does it in spades.
For instance, a central thesis (and allegedly the reason Lipton gave up science) is that he could no longer preach the orthodoxy that "our genes control us", insisting instead that "the environment controls us".
This is nonsense! Neither genes, nor environment alone "control" us. Biology has always been about the complex INTERACTION of genes with environment! The phenotype is what results. Geneticists also routinely estimate the heritable genetic contribution to any given trait.
Lipton cites the work of John Cairns as proof that mutations are "guided", thus "proving" that Lamarck was right and Darwin wrong. This is nonsense on stilts! Cairns work shows Darwinian selection in action! Cairns demonstrates not that mutations are guided (Lamarck), but that mutation rates increase (throughout the genome), in times of stress.
Lipton's psychological theories, such as the passive "downloading" of parental beliefs are a mess of half baked pop-psychology. His physics too is dubious, morphing light absorbance and emission seamlessly into cellular perception of "mental energies".
So, what is his point? That belief is so powerful, it controls reality. Unfortunately, he also believes that we are undergoing the "6th mass extinction of the planet". Feel free to sue in advance for damages!
At £30 for 8hrs, this is money for old rope. Just don't buy it!
This is complete rubbish. The author silly and irrational, and is theory is also silly.
I got this book thinking it would be a interesting tale of how our DNA has evolved over the millennia. What I found was a load of religious nonsense. Leaving me wondering why this book was in the non-fiction section in the first place?
Do not buy this book if you like science or evidence based facts.
