This book has some neat points... interesting new age ideas from a well-noted scientist on the body-mind connection. However, I found it difficult to get over the fact that the author thought so highly of herself. Yes, she is obviously super intelligent and has done some great things (discovered a possible cure for AIDS?). But I would have been able to think of her as even more great if she didn't keep rubbing it in my face. As far as the God connection - it was mentioned here and there, but I d ...more

This book picks up where Molecules... left off. The style of the writing for the personal aspects of the books make me nearly cross-eyed at times - too self-referential and full of too many details like "then we pulled out the recording device to record the conversation about the things i will tell you about next." just not interesting or contributing to anything beyond words on the page. The juicy stuff that is reason to read this book would actually fit onto about 35 pages. But what a 35 pages ...more

The bottom line is the usual: eat whole foods, don't eat "unnatural" stuff, chemical sweeteners and trans fats can literally kill you, exercise every day, meditate, forgive, have a positive attitude. What I like about Candace Pert is that she is an honest-to-g*d scientist, so she backs up all her assertions, even her crazy-ass assertions, with science. *Real* science, though often on or past the bleeding edge of what's accepted by your primary care doc.

But. Included here is waay too much of her

Shelves: audiobooks, spiritual
The audiobook version of this title is really neat - it's a live lecture that Dr. Pert gave to an audience in NYC, and then an in-depth interview delving into the heavier points in this book between the author and a woman with the most amazing voice ;).

Dr. Pert is doing what I hope I can do in my career, although her path is benchtop science, and I'd like mine to be more patient-care oriented than lab oriented. I just LOVE that she's bringing the scientific community in a VERY scientifically va

I liked the way Pert wrapped the science and spiritual together. Sometimes there was more information/narrative than I felt I needed, but overall it was enjoyable and enlightening.

This book was okay, but not what I'd expected. I liked the scientific aspect of it, but the writing style became a bit wearing. It seemed like the actual text was longer than it should have been.

I read this book to learn more about the topics touched upon in the film 'What the Bleep Do We Know?', mainly the functioning of neuropeptides in our perceptions of reality. This topic was covered in the first third of the book. The next two thirds dealt with the author's efforts to get an AIDS-treatment

Recommends it for: Folks intetested in complex health issues and novice molecular biologists
I loved this book for the author's authenticity, candor and exploration of a wide range of topics that effect the human spirit. For an author who has published hundreds of scientific articles, her writing is very approachable and very human. This book inspired me to take better care of my life, and empowered me to look into how so many areas of life are interconnected into the web of my feeling "good." Dr. Pert's compilation of resources to other books and scientific contributors in the areas of ...more

Fascinating look at the further work of Dr. Candace Pert, pioneer in neuropeptide research. She also bridged the gap between real science and New Age teachings for many years. Sadly, Dr. Pert died in 2011. This book has bit too much, "and then my friend and I sat down to write another chapter" in it, but it's still an interesting read.

I want everyone I know to read this...and I'm using my teacher voice now to see that you do!!! this book is fundamentally important for everyone's education....explains much of what's new in science and how science is finally coming around to see energy as part of the intelligent consciousness we all are part of...very empowering
This book had some great ideas.... However, the book was more of an autobiography than a analysis of advances in neuroscience in the mind-body arena. I found it really slow going, wading through all the personal recollections and anecdotes to get to the science of it all - which was what I really wanted from the book.

Having appreciated The Molecules of Emotion and Pert's appearance in What the Bleep, I anticipated this book with enthusiasm. I met Nancy, her co-author, in Santa Barbara many years ago, so feel a real connection. The "chatty" conversational style isn't my favourite but it worked well enough to get the message across. Reading this alongside Joe Dispenza's latest is a real eye-opener!

Candace but her heart and soul into this healing book. It is easy reading and will help with healing your emotional self.

I loved this book and the idea of the mind-body. A must for anyone interested in healing. Also, take a look at the film "What the bleep do we know" - the author is also in this film.
