Norman Doidge, MD | The Brain That Changes Itself

official website

 
 

The discovery of neuroplasticity, that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains, even into old age, is the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in four hundred years.

    
Dr. Norman Doidge  introduces principles we can all use to overcome a number of brain limitations and explores the profound brain implications of the changing brain in an immensely moving book that will permanently alter the way we look at human possibility and human nature.

Chosen by the Dana Brain Foundation USA,  from among  the 30,000 books on the brain as  #1  best general book on the brain.


“Doidge leads the field in an extraordinary era for popular-science books about the brain.... This has to be explained in layperson's terms, no easy task, but there's a host of neurologists, psychologists, cognitive scientists and journalists explaining and interpreting the latest research....Two years ago, when the journal Cerebrum at the Dana Foundation in the US updated its list of great books about the brain for the general reader, it found there were already 30,000 brain-related books in English (and the total would no doubt be higher now). Aided by scientific advisers and readers, it produced a new list - with The Brain That Changes Itself 

at No. 1.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES:

“The power of positive thinking finally gains scientific credibility. Mind-bending, miracle-making, reality-busting stuff...with implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history.”

V.S. RAMACHANDRAN, MD, PHD:

“Superb. Brilliant. I devoured it.”


THE GLOBE AND MAIL:

“Doidge... is a master ... at explaining science to the rest of us. Doidge is the best possible guide. You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to read it, just curious about your brain.  Buy this book. Your brain will thank you.”
