?Really remarkable ... haunting and memorable.?
?Northrop Frye
The power of positive thinking finally gains scientific credibility. Mind-bending, miracle-making, reality-busting stuff...with implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history.
-The New York Times
Brilliant...Doidge has identified a tidal shift in basic science...The implications are monumental.
-The London Times
Fascinating. Doidge s book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain.
-Oliver Sacks, MD
Two years ago, when the journal Cerebrum at the Dana Foundation in the US updated its list of great books about the brain for the general reader, it found there were already 30,000 brain-related books in English. Aided by scientific advisers and readers, it produced a new list - with The Brain That Changes Itself at No. 1.
-The Melbourne Age
Lucid and absolutely fascinating. It satisfies in equal measure the mind and heart.
-The Chicago Tribune
Doidge turns everything we thought we knew about the brain upside down.
-Publisher s Weekly
Brilliant...This book is a wonderful and engaging way or re-imagining what kind of creatures we are.
-Jeanette Winterson, novelist, Order of the British Empire, Guardian, Best Book of 2008
Superb. Brilliant. I devoured it.
-V.S. Ramachandran, MD, PHD, Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition, Univeristy of California, San Diego, Author of Phantoms of the Brain
Doidge... is a master ... at explaining science to the rest of us. Doidge is the best possible guide. You don t have to be a brain surgeon to read it, just curious about your brain. Buy this book. Your brain will thank you.
-The Globe and Mail
Readers will want to read entire sections aloud and pass the book on to someone who can benefit from it. [Doidge] links scientific experimentation with personal triumph in a way that inspires awe
-Washington Post
Doidge tells one spell-binding story after another as he travels the globe interviewing the scientists and their subjects who are on the cutting edge of a new age. It may be hard to imagine that a book so rich in science can also be a page-turner, but this one is hard to set down.
-Jeff Zimman, Posit Science, e-newsletter
The most readable and best general treatment of this subject to date.
- Michael M. Merzenich, Ph.D., Keck Center for Integrative Neurosciences University of California at San Francisco
A riveting, essential book These stories are most emotionally satisfying. Doidge addresses how cultural influences literally "shape" our brain. [And] .our response to the world around us is not only a social or psychological phenomenon, but often a lasting neurological process.
Montreal Gazette, Liam Durcan, MD, Neurologist & Novelist
A hymn to life.
-Panorama Italy

The Brain That Changes Itself...is without question the most important book of the year, and maybe the most important book we have ever read.

Norman Doidge has shown that what and how we think can change our brains. He has illuminated the foundations of psychological healing.
- Charles Hanly, Ph.D.President, International Psychoanalytical Association
Astonishing. This book will inevitably draw comparisons to the work of Oliver Sacks. Doidge has a prodigious gift for rendering the highly technical highly readable. It's hard to imagine a more exciting topic--or a better introduction to it.
- Kitchener Waterloo Record
Perfect for fans of Oliver Sacks
-Quill & Quire
Beautifully written and brings life and clarity to a variety of neuropsychiatric problems that affect children and adults... It reads a bit like a science detective story and -you do not need a Ph.D. to benefit from the wisdom imparted here.
- Barbara Milrod, M.D. Psychiatry, Weill Medical College, Cornell University, New York
A panoramic examination of plasticity's profound implications.

-Neuro-Psychoanalysis

A remarkable book ... a highly readable exploration of a branch of science that has the potential to change all our lives.
-Hobart Mercury
Why isn't this book on the top of the bestseller list of all time? The recognition that the brain in plastic and can actually change itself with exercise and understanding is a huge leap in the history or mankind, far greater than landing on the moon.
- Jane S. Hall, International Psychoanalysis
Only a few decades ago, scientists considered the brain to be fixed or hardwired and considered most forms of brain damage, therefore, to be incurable. Dr. Doidge, an eminent psychiatrist and researcher, was struck by how his patients own transformations belied this and set out to explore the new science of neuroplasticity by interviewing both scientific pioneers in neuroscience, and patients who have benefited from neurorehabilitation. Here he describes in fascinating personal narratives how the brain, far from being fixed, has remarkable powers of changing its own structure and compensating for even the most challenging neurological conditions. Doidge s book is a remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain.
- Oliver Sack, MD, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

Reseña del editor:

An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformedpeople whose mental limitations or brain damage were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential."
