Abstract:

The author takes us onto terrain that might seem fantastic. We learn that our thoughts can switch our genes on and off, altering our brain anatomy. We learn how people of average intelligence can, with brain exercises, improve their cognition and perception, develop muscle strength, or learn to play a musical instrument simply by imagining doing so. Using personal stories from the heart of this neuroplasticity revolution, the author has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.
