One 29 hour audio file with nothing to mark the breaks between each of the three stories, no chapter listing, absolutely no navigation. Really shockingly bad from Audible and no reflection on these classic tales themselves but this is not good.

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.

I loved this book. Dr Siegel supplements scientific research and his own methods and techniques for coping with mental health issues, with really good case studies and great stories of people's journeys to health, discovery and personal development.
I have pages of notes from insights gleaned and will listen again for sure! it is very technical at times but always accessible, and lots of complex neuroscience is revisited throughout the chapters in different contexts and stories so it really makes sense.
Enlightening!

If you think your brain and mind are one, think again. According to the interpersonal neurobioligy pioneer Daniel J. Siegel, the mind actually emerges out of the interaction between your brain and relationships. Now, with The Neurobiology of "We", Dr. Siegel invites you on a journey to discover this revolutionary new model of human development - one that can positively transform trauma, move you from stress to calm and equanimity, and promote well-being for you, your family, or even your community.

Difficult to follow at times, as the content can run from very technical, heavily scientific into somewhat over simplifying the conclusions.
Some amazing insights about the brain and about our behaviours.
