Barry Sears, M.D. author of The Zone Amen continues to be one of the most innovative researchers of the mind. He is one of the few scientists willing to cross the frontier between neurology and religion to describe the soul in terms of cutting-edge science. I strongly recommend this book to anyone searching to build a better life.
Thomas M. Brod, M.D. Diplomate, American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology; Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA Dr. Amen links his new observations of brain effects to real problems many people suffer, and then offers solid practical advice about what to do about them. Applying his discoveries, many of my patients have experienced "miracles" of sustained relief from misery they thought would be theirs for life.
Emmett Miller, M.D. author of Deep Healing and the web site www.DrMiller.com Healing the Hardware of the Soul takes science a brave and much-needed step forward, bringing mind, body, and soul together in a most fascinating way. It will prove as enlightening for health professionals and religious/spiritual teachers as for anyone who desires deep self-knowledge.
Timmen Cermak, M.D. author of A Time to Heal: The Road to Recovery for Adult Children of Alcoholics Dr. Amen takes another bold step toward a unified understanding of the human brain and all of our human experience. Since all consciousness funnels through the brain, we must accept that the health of our personality can never outstrip the health of our brain. Consequently, our spiritual maturity also rests upon optimal functioning of the brain.
Diane E. Hough, M.S. Counseling Professionals Northwest, Mercer Island, Washington Dr. Amen's work brings science to character traits once considered to be moral or psychological flaws and opens up a door of opportunity to optimize the strength of the human spirit. His book allows people to create behavior changes worthy of trust, leading to healthier relationships by integrating physiology, psychology, and spirituality.

A lot of the information is the same as "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life" but it is expanded to include spirituality.
Dr. Amen explains his theory on the brain, how it works, and how it can often mis-fire, causing a physical imbalance that is shown on his SPECT scans. He gives great examples of case studies he's done to help the reader relate to an in depth topic.
I greatly enjoyed the authors take on religious and political leaders in regards to brain function.
I found this book very helpful and very insightful. I have gained empathy and respect for myself and everyone close to me. After reading this, you will understand yourself and the people around you so much better.
