Of The Brain That Changes Itself…


‘An utterly wonderful book –without question one of the most important books about the brain you will ever read; yet it is beautifully written, immensely approachable, and full of humanity.  Its message is one of hope: it is not just our brains that shape our thinking, but our thinking that, very definitely, shapes our brains.’

—Iain McGilchrist MA (Oxon), BM, FRCPsych, FRSA author of The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World
