Super Brain book review

Super Brain by Deepak Chopra, M.D. and Rudolph E. Tanzi, Ph.D. is more than your typical self help book.  What I found most appreciative of this book was the illustration of how our brain works from a biological perspective.  This was depicted easily so that us "non- scientific" folk could understand.  The authors also used scientific research to prove theories which is always helpful and provides the reader with a bit more hope and certainty than other similar books.  Most of the book was dedicated to explaining our thought processes, why we think the way we do, and specifically addressing memory loss, depression, overweight issues, anxiety, and personal crisis.  The latter part of the book is a bit more technical scientifically and it also provides brief directions on how to change the wiring of our brain. 

My favorite part of the book was the middle, the chapters explaining why we think the way we think, and how our thoughts lead our brain.  The authors provide "series of questions to ask yourself" while faced with particular situations, which helps to stimulate your brain while thoughtfully evaluating the predicament one is faced with at any given time. 

I recommend this book for everyone, especially those who are familiar with The Secret, Power of Now, and Laws of Attraction.  I feel that Super Brain is a nice compliment to the above books and practices.
