Publisher's Summary

From everyday stress to severe trauma, many obstacles to a full life can be overcome by developing what Dr. Daniel J. Siegel calls "mindsight," our ability to perceive the mind and literally redirect the flow of energy and information within our brains. Through this powerful capacity for insight and empathy, we can "rewire" crucial connections, create dynamic linkages, and open ourselves to relationships in a new way.
Based on thirty years of work with patients and on research drawn from nearly a dozen scientific fields, Mindsight brings these concepts alive through vivid case histories that show what happens when mindsight is missing, and how it can be strengthened in nine essential areas. Listeners of My Stroke of Insight or The Brain that Changes Itself will discover new ideas about memory, emotion, trauma and brain-mind integration - plus a richer sense of their own humanity.

Effective personal development.

Brilliant audio book, it’s read by the author and it felt like having my own wise therapist telling me all the good stuff I needed to hear. If you’re interested in the way the brain works and also interested in the way your particular brain works then this is for you. He is clued up on the latest research and suggests wise things to do like mindfulness meditation and taking exercise. It isn’t escapist listening so maybe not the best thing in the car if you’re already stressed about life. I’m ready to listen to it all again and I’ve also bought the book as a reference.
