Publisher's Summary

Joe Dispenza, DC, has spent decades studying the human mind - how it works, how it stores information, and why it perpetuates the same behavioral patterns over and over. In the acclaimed film What the Bleep Do We Know!?, he began to explain how the brain evolves - by learning new skills, developing the ability to concentrate in the midst of chaos, and even healing the body and the psyche. Evolve Your Brain presents this information in depth, while helping you take control of your mind, explaining how thoughts can create chemical reactions that keep you addicted to patterns and feelings - including ones that make you unhappy. And when you know how these bad habits are created, it's possible to not only break these patterns, but also reprogram and evolve your brain, so that new, positive, and beneficial habits can take over.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Neuroscience and magic"

    There are been plenty of great books that take a proven scientific approach to self improvement. This is not one of them. A confusing mismash of basic neuroscience, psychology and magical thinking. The basic premise that self reflection and a concerted effort to change automatic responses can help improve us is sound, but the author then claims a whole host of other super powers ranging from curing cancer to bestowing physic powers. The book covers some genuinely useful research on neuroscience and human behaviour, but it's often warped so badly to match the authors preconceived ideas, it's hard to know what you can trust. Even well understood theories such as Evolution are painfully misrepresented, and the chapter on Quantum physics is predictably fantastical. Aside from the content, one of the worst aspects is how painfully slow the book is. It is scattered with unnecessary repetition, meaningless passages and long and unhelpful analogies. Save yourself your money, and you time and pick up Peak, Habit, Grit, Deep Work, or any of the other quality titles that can back up their claims.

    Not exactly boring, but not a book I can see myself revisiting in the near future.

    "The Theory Behind "The Secret""

    I don't want to downplay this book by giving this review a potentially fluffy title, but I've been curious about the idea of mind over matter for some time now. I've created change in my own life through focused thinking but wanted to take things a stage further.

    By learning about the neuroscience behind thought and hearing of real life examples, I now have renewed enthusiasm to see where this takes me. I've just finished this audio book and intend to listen to it all over again, to make sure I haven't missed anything during my 4 hour daily commutes to London and back.

    There's just one chapter that I struggled with, that goes into the science behind each part of the brain, bit the rest of this book kept me engaged. I'm looking forward to the second time around, which I think I'll start straight away.

    "Densely scientific language, short on practicality"

    This is a fascinating book, looking at how we can change our brain from a neurological and evolutionary perspective. There’s a lot of explanation of neurological processes, but at the end there’s little clear structure on how to change. A bit less of the textbook stuff and more on the practicality would have made this a book to return to. As it is, I don’t think I’ll ever read it again.

    "Life Changing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Evolve Your Brain to be better than the print version?

    Personally due to my learning & life style I prefer audio books as you can exercise, be on the bus or doing housework and "read a book" I also like to make notes and refer back to them on occasion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Evolve Your Brain?

    Is that I have seen direct results within a very short space of time. Firstly I came the author on You Tube - I then went on holiday and then after shopping one day thoughts I really need a good book, then next thing I was walking past a book shop and the very 1st book I saw Mind Power of the 21st Century and it says in there "nothing happens by coincidence"


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Changing your mind


    Any additional comments?

    I have really benefited from this book and I love the neuroscience part and the best part for me was having the bonus material to refer to and really understanding what is going on from a biological point of view.

    "loved the content but not the narrator"

    I much preferred the narrator of Dr Joe's two later books. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had listened to this one first. The content was great - it is more of the science behind changing your thought patterns and how the brain works. Of his three books, this was my least favorite, although I still think it has some incredible information in it and is definitely worth the investment.

    "Great message, long book"

    There is an excellent message to this book and the author goes in to explicit detail regarding how the brain works and functions. Many may find it slow and hard work to get through a couple chapters but I assure you it is well worth the money. You will be better for having read this book and be armed with some great knowledge

    "Edit, edit, edit."

    The book explores some very interesting and inspiring aspects of mind, brain and neuroplasticity. It's based on newest research on the field. Unfortunately, the author seems to draw a bunch of far reaching conclusions that aren't quite within the laws of cause and effect, and it is often hard to decipher whether what is written is based on research or author's own pseudo-religious beliefs.

    My biggest peeve, though, is the structure and writing of the book. The author constantly repeats himself and the topics come in somewhat haphazard fashion. Language used is often hard and stuffed with technical words and lacks punctuality. This is exacerbated by the placid reader who lacks good emphasis and tonality. I found myself zoning of constantly because of these short comings. In short, the book needs a good editor to make it in to an enjoyable listen.

    This book is science heavy with minimal practices. If you want the practices and don't mind skipping the science then read his third book. I recommend his workshops as well!

    "Chiropractor Fails to Understand Neuroscience"

    Dispenza, a Chiropractic salesman, is not qualified to be teaching subjects like Neuroscience or Quantum Mechanics. Regardless, his assertions are incorrect or overly-simplified to hold any substantial merit to begin with. The author claims this to be scientific understanding, but is merely co-opting the language to present a religious philosophy. Spines are not healed by "sharing natural energy" through physical contact. Belief does not shape the physical reality we happen to inhabit.
    The main inspiration for the author comes from a psuedo scientific philosophy called Ramtha. That philosophy was created by an English Teacher, and teaches that Quantum Mechanics allows us to have "superconsiousness" that can rewire laws of reality by believing hard enough. This does not hold up to scrutiny, and should be a huge red flag for anybody with a functioning frontal cortex.
    For those who read it, like me, because it offers a "unique perspective," there is nothing of value to be gained. The contents of the book can not even be used tangentially to offer a new paradigm on reality. It turns away from reality entirely, and never tried to look over its shoulder. Read up on Zen instead. At least that tries to connect to reality.

    This book was great to learn and understand why we do certain things and how we can evolve in to and away from certain habits. Knowing is important , wisdom is doing it. Recommended for anyone who wants to understand the internal workings of our nervous system.

    This audiobook was both informative and enlightening in regards to concepts that I was unaware of. It also confirmed elements in which I have thought. It is clear that the information could not have been done in less time. I look forward to listening multiple times to absorb and to implement many of the suggestions and concepts presented. Excellent, excellent material.
