The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science

Meet the ninety-year-old doctor who is still practicing medicine, the stroke victim who learned to move and talk again and the woman with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole. All these people had their lives transformed by the remarkable discovery that our brains can repair themselves through the power of positive thinking.

Here bestselling author, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge reveals the secrets of the cutting-edge science of ‘neuroplasticity’. He introduces incredible case histories – blind people helped to see, IQs raised and memories sharpened – and tells the stories of the maverick scientists who are overturning centuries of assumptions about the brain.

This inspiring book will leave you with a sense of wonder at the capabilities of the mind, and the self-healing power that lies within all of us.
