So much practical.

It is the most important book I've ever encountered. These are based on our increasing understanding of the brain, and the old but neglected wisdom of the oneness of mind and body.

Good Book.

Many different perspectives and eye-opening things regarding weight training and other aspects of life and I just felt like it opened up a new world of thinking about these things!

terrible

I've read the whole book and got this suumary to solidify the ideas in the book. It is a terrible summary made worse by terrible narration. monotonous and with poor spacing. Sometimes it feels like chapters are one big long sentence.

Excellent book!

Very well written account of how our bodies hold onto our experiences and how this can shape our lives. I both read and listened to this book - TWICE. Have to make a notation here that the narrator was great in the audible version. I've given this book as gifts to colleagues who also help patients with chronic pain issues - it's a great resource to remind us of all the aspects to look at.

Right Pathway

What a phenomenal book. I've been dealing with Western medicine for the past 15 to 20 years dealing with being diagnosed wrongly with multiple scary mental disorders such as schizophrenia and pills were not the answer either and I finally found this book and I am starting to finally make changes from my terrible childhood. it also teaches you that you should be a little bit more kind to everybody because we never honestly know what anybody's going through but we are taught to hate so much through life. thank you for writing this book as much appreciated you have saved me to go on a better path with my family and I can't thank you enough for that. Thank you for helping me see.

For professionals

After tying the first few chapters of the original, I switched to the summary as I felt like the intended audience for this book was professional therapists and not general public. After finishing the summary, I still feel that way. I thought they did a good job summarizing the book but the narrator was dry for my taste. Also felt like there was no rhythm or breaks between chapters. Like they wanted to get this done along with multiple others that day.

Overall I think a YouTube summary would be just as good.

Skeleton

Granted, it is a summary, but it felt like someone was reading merely the titles and subtitles and providing conclusions without substance.
