Product Description

Review

“A testament to mind over brain ... It's the truth of the matter that sheer willpower can truly make you break free.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio

“Operating on the highly rational perspective that we are not our brains, but rather, substantial free agents who exercise control over our brains, Schwartz and Gladding develop a simple, yet profoundly insightful approach for developing a flourishing life.  The result is truly life-giving, and it will bring healing and hope to all who read it and practice its wisdom.”
—J.P. Moreland, author of The God Question

"How can the brain, which is just a complex network of interconnected nerve cells, give rise to consciousness and to thought? Dr. Jeffrey Schwartz and Dr. Rebecca Gladding argue, persuasively, that the mind actually has massive causal effects on the functioning of the brain. In other words, you can not only change the way you think, feel and behave through conscious effort when you're upset, but you can also change the programming and chemistry of your brain. A compelling and important message."
—David Burns, M.D., author of Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy

“The idea that we can deliberately and systematically change our brains with our minds was once thought ridiculous.  But now, largely due to Jeffrey Schwartz and his UCLA research on neuro-plasticity and OCD, this once revolutionary idea is well accepted.  Rebecca Gladding and Jeffrey Schwartz adapt Schwartz’s extraordinarily successful program for a mainstream audience giving simple, self-directed tools to help achieve greater happiness, emotional balance, and overall well-being.”
—Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child

I'm so glad that I bought this book when I was in a depression and hopeless situation. This book has change my life and my mind. Its been a month reading this book, doing all excercises and practicing the 4 steps in everyday situation. Doing so, made a huge impact in my life, the way I view the world and myself. I became positive and more driven to change myself and become successful. It also helps some of my bad habits and addiction. It boosts my confidence and my self esteem. I also worry less. I'm getting better doing the techniques this book teaches. Very easy to implement the 4 steps yet very powerful. I never thought I would be able to get out in the "rut or a pit" that I was in until I read this book. Highly recommended to anyone.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sarah Chana Radcliffe on Jan. 22 2012
Format: Hardcover
As a psychological practitioner, I am always looking for positive ways to help people feel better and I particularly like to offer skills that people can follow up with outside of the office. Now, I can refer clients to Jeffrey Schwartz's excellent book You Are Not Your Brain. However, this book is not only for clients - I really think it is for anyone who ever entertains a negative thought! The strategy shows readers how they can banish worry and negativity and wire their brains for consistent optimism and happiness. What could be better? The techniques Schwartz offers in this concise manual are grounded in the latest brain science. He shows the reader the mechanics behind the changes that they can make, inspiring both confidence and skill. Each of the 4 simple steps are carefully described, making the strategies very accessible. This is an approach that makes sense and goes down easy, something that people can do as soon as they've read the book. I highly recommend it!
