Summary

From a course they created for professionals, Mark Waldman and Chris Manning adapted their lectures and present simple brain exercises, based on the latest neuroscience research, to guide listeners on what makes us happy, wealthy, and wise.

The promise of their original class - and now of this book - is to help people create more "wealth" in their lives, defined as the combination of money, happiness, and success. The book presents both the scientific background and sets of NeuroWisdom exercises that will help everyone transform their environment into a more meaningful and enjoyable place. By spending just a few minutes each day, these exercises reduce neurological stress and increase happiness, motivation, and productivity. The "worry" centers of the brain are turned off and the optimism circuits are turned on. Work becomes more pleasurable and creativity is increased, enabling the brain to anticipate and solve problems more efficiently.

Wise words

Really enjoyed this book. Great combination of practical exercise and experiment based on sound theory and research. Clearly read and presented. Lots of material I have come across before, decades ago but now well framed within neuroscience principles and concepts.
I think the real value of the book is down to the reader - if you don’t practice what is described you will see no difference. I’m tempted to buy a paper copy, yes, it was THAT good!

Really detailed,interesting,and helpful . A great listen.

I listened to this book in one day. I had to hear the whole thing once I started it. I need to hear it again and try and incorporate the exercises it gives because they are necessary in order to be able to improve oneself if one desires to do so. After listening to the book and gaining understanding about the brain and how it functions I realize how the simple steps could make huge changes in my life, my success , and my happiness. One can definitely would benefit from most of the simple techniques described. I am very motivated and extremely grateful to have read or rather listened to this book. I can't wait to use these techniques. I wish I had been able to read this long ago. I would have been way better off if I learned this stuff a lot earlier in life. This book will teach you a lot about yourself and understanding how others think. A really helpful book for anyone. The world would be a better place if everyone read this and followed the lessons.Totally enjoyed it.

Trailblazing Mental Information

I listen to podcasts and books regarding the brain and neurological training. As I listened to this title, I noticed that other sources that I listened to may have borrowed from this title (based on release time).Regardless of whether that's accurate or not, this is an excellent book. Good mix of information, practical application and research. The greatest benefit comes when do the exercises.

Scam

I am a fan and customer of Audible. Not every book is great, but usually very good.
This book is a scam in that it is a sloppy repackage of common sense masquerading as a finessed revision. I am not even half way through. Wasted $.
