Exhilarating science... In an era of ever-increasing medicalisation
of the human mind, and the medication of it, the appeal of
neuroplasticity outlined by Doidge is addictive. It is inspiring,
page-turning stuff -- V.S. Ramachandran, neurologist and
neuroscientist, author of 'The Tell-Tale Brain', Director of the
Center for Brain and Cognition UCSD * Sunday Times *
Brilliant and highly original. The book is a treasure-trove of the author's own deep insights and a clear bright light of optimism shines through every page -- V.S. Ramachandran, neurologist and neuroscientist, author of 'The Tell-Tale Brain', Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition UCSD
Bold, remarkable . . . paradigm challenging. The Brain's Way of Healing is brilliantly organized, scientifically documented, and a beautifully written narrative that captivates the reader, who is left with the profound message that the brain, similar to other organs, can heal -- Stephen W. Porges, author of 'The Polyvagal Theory'
