It was an interesting experience to put together the commands of Philippians 4:8 with the cognitive study of neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf. I knew God's command to me to think on what is good, but that command came together with the "why" when I read her study. What a challenge to live our lives to think on the positive - and for the first time put that together with why that is a good thing! God is an awesome God and He has EVERY detail planned!!!
This book is excellent to help if you want to change your way of thinking and add quality to your life. It is intense and you may have to read the same paragraph several times, but it is worth the time spent.
After hearing some good things about Dr. Caroline Leaf and seeing a couple of video clips of her teaching I decided to order this book. Been struggling with some things and want to get rid of negativity. I began reading the book and got excited! What she shares in the beginning is wonderful information and shows how science is verifying the wisdom and truth of Scripture. The excitement continued to build as explanations were given of how we can actually change our brain chemistry for our good! Mention is made of the brain detox program and steps to change from negative to good thinking in Part 2 of the book. I couldn't wait! Had to force myself to keep reading and not jump ahead. I ordered more copies of the book to give to friends.
When I finally got to Part 2, I was so excited! Now I'm finally going to be able to make some changes! You are told to carefully ponder the questions asked during the 5 steps that are supposed to bring about the change. You are given steps, but no explanation or examples of how to use them! I was dumbfounded! How can you build me up like that then leave me hanging?! I kept reading hoping somewhere the Ahhah moment would come where it would be tied together and it would make sense. It never happened. I went from one disappointment to another and at the end disbelief. How could someone who touts working with so many patients and students and the wonderful results achieved, not deliver! I was disgusted. disgusted with the author, the publisher, and then with myself for wasting my money on not one but 11 copies of this tease.
This book needs to be pulled and rewritten before anyone else suffers thru what I did.
