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.

Great theory but lacks actual life solutions.

Very in depth, excellent details about how the mind works, so it was very interesting. But I was really hoping for more instructions on how to apply it to my life.

An excellent read for those wanting to change.

This audio book goes into great detail on how the human brain functions and why it works the way it does. This book is a major key for anyone wanting to completely transform their being and become a new person.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ

This book is amazing. It covers all aspects of psychology in the first half of the book and then goes into how to make change in our lives in a way that is lasting. I have read his books before, but this one is by far the best. Great narrator also.

Extremely Insightful and interesting

Provides a good understanding of how the brain works and opens up a whole new set of options by enabling/introducing an evolutionary thinking pattern that helps utilize that understanding.

pseudo science at its finest.

A compilation of pseudo science and confirmation bias. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. The author has attributed general physical therapy benefits to spirituality and junk science. I'm trying to figure out how to get a refund now.

Woo nonsense

Sadly the promise of interesting neuroscientific content quickly fades into a dangerous story of woo and pseudoscience.

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.

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

Too long for the message

The amount of real science and hard evidence is hard to separate from his personal stories and one-off examples. The summary of the science was excessive and repetitive.

No instruction's about how to change self, just some assumptions. Not worth the credit.

If you want to learn how to change yourself the best of these books I have ever read is 'Your Brain at Work' by David Rock.

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.

Mostly basic biology and "Practice makes perfect"

I'm on chapter 9 of what appears to be the same free basic ideas being paraphrased paragraph after paragraph.

If you have a high School level understanding of the brain, the first 9 chapters can be skipped.

When does this start book give me something I can use?

I get it. I'm a creature of habit. How do I use that knowledge to my advantage?

Get to the point, please. -- the point is apparently, "Practice Makes Perfect".

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.

Dr. Joe is a beast as usual

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!

It's not a easy reading (listening)

Sometimes too much information, too much anatomy. Struggling to finish. But definitely it's explained all in detail.

Best book to understand how brain works.

This book is an amazing combination of scientific research, real story and self help tools that author put together. Best reading about the matter and mind so far.
