One of the most insightful books I have read in a long time! I continue to be fascinated by the human brain and this book is easily accessible to the layman but deep enough to satisfy the professional. One great read!

Most studies of the effects on the human brain, mind and body of many of the meditative techniques developed over 2000 years either a promoting a pseudo-religious agenda or are non-thinking attacks because the reviewer believes that there is some sort of religious agenda.

Daniel J. Siegel avoids both. As one of the top researchers in the world on the function of the human brain and mind, he, along with a number of colleagues studied, in depth, the meditative practices discovered and refined in the East over milleniums and discusses their effect on the brain - from a non-religious point of view.

Fascinating reading and, for anyone interested in thinking, a book that is transformative.
