Reviewed: 16-04-17

I am a psychology student interested in contemplative practices and neuroscience. I find this book a great introduction to the major pathways and brain areas relating to Mindfulness, emotions and decision making. The story proceeds logically from the introduction of the brain circuits to the meaning of Mindfulness practices and ends with tools to applying all this information to your personal life. The ending chapter will make you want to journal about your existence and question it.
Perfect combination of science and self-discovery.
I find it easiest to read if you already have some previous knowledge about brain structures.
Narrators voice is very pleasant.
