A scientist's exploration into the mysteries of the human mind.
Neuroscience studies the brain, but what does science have to say about the mind? A full examination of what we mean by the term "mind" has traditionally been the province of philosophers, but what might neuroscience teach us about it? How does the mind differ from consciousness? And how do we know who we really are?
In this book, noted neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., brings his characteristic sensitivity and interdisciplinary background to this most perplexing of topics. He explores the nature of the who, how, what, why, and when of your mind - of your self - from the perspective of neuroscience. Mind is the essence of our true nature, our deepest sense of being alive, here, right now, in this moment. How science explains it is truly one of the most exciting journeys into knowledge we can take.

Lots of speculation presented as fact. Couldn't stop saying "within ... AND between!" like it was some great new insight every few sentences. I really wanted to enjoy this because it's a topic I'm genuinely interested in, but it was just terrible. 0/10, literally worse than watching paint dry.
this book is amazing! I learned so much and feel a deeper connection with myself and our planet. I've never been great with Physics so it did get a bit complex for a little bit. I can say that I understand more than when I began this book! I recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for a better connection with our world.
"The Mind in plain sight"
A kind and patient journey through concepts, ideas and a way to experience that. excellent!
Dan is a genius at communicating complex ideas, breaking them down into understandable segments that fit together effortlessly.
This book will leave you with both a feeling of awe and a third to work toward being a better human. Thoroughly recommended , can't stop thinking about it and returning to it !
"The science of spirituality"
An excellent thoughtful deep dive into the mind and how to achieve wellness. It's very refreshing to hear spiritual ideas broken down and analysed from the perspective of science.
I found it to be a bit of a struggle at times as there is a lot of repetition. I felt the message could have been delivered in half the time. However, the content was so valuable this issue didn't reduce my score and I would recommend it in a heartbeat to those interested in the topic.
"it's worth persevering"
slow start but soon gets interesting, he is as articulate as ever and presents things objectively.
