Mindsight is another brilliant book from Daniel Siegel. I have learned so much from his work on the integration of the lessons from the new brain science and ancient mindfulness techniques. For anyone who wants a deep appreciation of the way in which human brain works best when it is in an integrated, mindful state, this is the book for you.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Siegel accomplishes quite a feat here; integration of principles of neuroscience, interpersonal psychology/therapy, and Eastern mindfulness mostly through engaging clinical cases. While not perfect, it is eons beyond the typical prescriptive "self-help" genre.

Great stuff.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Oct. 5 2012
Format: Paperback
In Shakespeare's play, Hamlet, Polonius offers this advice to his son Laertes before his departure for college:

"This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man."

Urging the young man to be true to himself is sound advice but presupposes that Laertes knows who he is. For most of us, self-knowledge is immensely difficult to obtain and even more difficult to accept. However, Socrates insists that the unexamined life is not worth living. All this is relevant to Daniel Siegel's latest book, Mindsight, in which he discusses the core principles and potential significance of "the new science of personal transformation," a process during which the brain creates itself or increases its capabilities "to promote physical, psychological, and interpersonal well-being."

As Daniel Goleman correctly observes in an uncommonly enlightening Foreword, "Daniel Siegel's theory of mindsight -- the brain's capacity for both insight and empathy...makes sense for us out of the cluttered confusions of our sometimes maddening and messy emotions...Self-awareness and empathy are (along with self-mastery and social skills) domains of human ability essential for success in life...Of these four skills, self-awareness lays the foundation for the rest."

There are several concepts or themes central to Siegel's narrative. For example, "The Triangle of Well-Being" reveals three aspects of our lives (i.e. relationships, mind, and brain) that "form the three mutual influencing points of the Triangle of Well-Bring." Mindsight enables us to become aware of, indeed monitor and modify "the flow of energy and information within the Triangle of Well-Being.

I borrowed this book from the library, then bought 2 copies from Amazon, 1 to keep, 1 to give away. It's an excellent book, I'll keep reading more by Dan Siegel!

Another reviewer got it right -- This is a brilliant work! It deserves more positive comments than are here! Visit amazon.com for more. I highly recommend the audio (read by the author). If you are interested in changing entrenched patterns of thinking and gaining a better understanding of your own mind, this is a splendid resource. Daniel Siegel is truly ahead of his time or at least right on the cusp of a new way of perceiving the mind.
