A leading neuroplasticity researcher and the coauthor of the groundbreaking books Brain Lock and The Mind and the Brain, Jeffrey M. Schwartz has spent his career studying the structure and neuronal firing patterns of the human brain. He pioneered the first mindfulness-based treatment program for people suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, teaching patients how to achieve long-term relief from ther compulsions.

For the past six years, Schwartz has worked with psychiatrist Rebecca Gladding to refine a program that successfully explains how the brain works and why we often feel besieged by bad brain wiring. Just like the compulsions of OCD patients, they discovered that bad habits, social anxieties, self-deprecating thoughts, and compulsive overindulgence are all rooted in overactive brain circuits. The key to making life changes that you want—to making your brain work for you—is to consciously choose to starve these circuits of focused attention, thereby decreasing their influence and strength.

In You Are Not Your Brain, Schwartz and Gladding carefully outline their program, showing listeners how to identify negative brain impulses, channel them through the power of focused attention, and ultimately lead more fulfilling and empowered lives.

You can get this title if you stay with the process. After you select it, AND create an account, Tantor gives you the option to select 1 of 3 OTHER free books. Unfortunately nowhere do they tell you what these books are, nor that they are in addition to your first selection, so it does leave the impression that your selection is not 'in the list'. I guessed at free book, "Glass Houses" and it's book1 of some Vampire series by Rachel Caine. When I went to 'My Bookshelf' after all this, "You are not your Brain" WAS in my list and I was able to select and download it.

Thumbs up ! The first book that I come across that really separates the brain from the person. An important step to allow the person to see them differently and not to confused bad thought with bad person. Healing and corrective actions can be taken more positively as the person feels empowered to stop the wrong thinking instead of blaming him or herself and spiral down the wrong path. Great and clear message in helping us separate the teacher from the teachings. It would be great to see how the same concept gets to the mainstream and co-exists with the legal and social system.
