Summary

This is a big book of three books in one. The following topics will be addressed:

Book 1:

Neural networks, the hypothalamus, and the secrets of a woman’s mind! You probably aren’t sure what a neural network is, you likely have no clue what a hypothalamus is, but I bet you are aching to get your hands on the last one, especially if your a dude. Never fear my friends, for this book will teach you how neural networks operate and how they are used in medical diagnostics and Forex trading.

You’ll learn what a hypothalamus is and how it works, tips for keeping it healthy along with six natural ways to improve its functioning capacity. You’ll learn what the signs are if you or someone you love is suffering from a hypothalamic condition. Learn whether your brain is making you fat (weird, I know), and why people sweat. Hear about the endocrine system, and many other fascinating subjects.

Ah, the female brain, that vast mystery that has caused so much strife simply due to lack of knowledge. Does a woman’s brain make a safer driver? Do they work better than men’s brain? Learn how they’re wired, learn about the female relationship brain chemistry and what to do when she cries. Hear about three exposed sexist myths. Learn why guys are like waffles and much more.

Book 2:

Artificial intelligence. These two words bring to mind many emotions and thoughts. What are its applications, what are its benefits, what are its dangers? How will it affect the future, how are today’s AIs affecting us now? What is its impact on millennials and the 21st century? What is the difference between strong and weak AI? What situations must we consider? How will it affect marketing and education? What about smart computers and neural networks, what does their future look like?

Psychopaths and sociopaths, what’s the difference? Learn what they mean, and what the signs of a real psychopath are. What lies within a psychopath’s mind. What role does a conscience have inside a psychopath. Learn how to find and handle a psychopath. Hear about remedies and treatments. Learn about a psychopath’s sneaky ways of manipulating others.

Hear about dissociative identity disorder, more commonly known as split personality disorder. Find out the truth behind the many false myths that surround it, and how to comprehend the condition. Find out why some people have it, as well as the dependencies that come with it. Learn tips for those who have it and the pros and cons of various treatments, and much more.

Book 3

The frontal lobe controls everything we think and do, it contains how we learn. This book will teach you many new ways to improve your focus and memory, it will explain neurogenesis and neuroplasticity with specific topics like:

  • What treatments there are if you damage your frontal lobe.
  • The various different types and styles we learn.
  • Working methods that make a big difference in how we learn.
  • Accelerated learning techniques and their advantages
  • Worthwhile speed-reading strategies and the many advantages and benefits of speed-reading.
  • Methods of improving and enhancing your memory and focus.
  • Increase your brain capability and function with neurogenesis.
  • Neurodegenerative illnesses and their treatments
  • Melatonin and its ramifications when it comes to Alzheimer’s.
  • The origin of neuroplasticity
  • The steps to rewire your brain through neuroplasticity workouts.
  • Learn to enhance your neuroplasticity.
  • Learn about the four pillars of Brain Physical Fitness.
  • Steps for treating eating disorders.
  • How to use it in Neuromuscular Scoliosis in Spastic Paralysis.

Our brain is what gives us our capability to succeed, so why not do everything we can to improve it? This wonderful guide can show you how to do just that; using the topics listed above as well as others in this book.

Not what I expected

Disappointed. Like reading a textbook full of research papers. There is some content here but it is hard listening.

worst book ever

There is a little bit of science in the first section of the book, and then it completely devolves into the most sexist, ignorant generalizations I've ever heard. I'd expect to hear this stuff in the 1940s. It rambles about how women are emotional, and better caretakers, while men are better at business. It makes absurd generalizations about mother-daughter relationships being easier than mother-son relationships, about certain personality types being more likely to cheat- total pseudoscience. Complete waste of my time. :(

Nice

Nice bundle of 3 very informational and enjoyable books. This thing exceeded my expectations. Don't mistake this for a dud. This will help you learn a lot more about our brain.

Brain science in a nutshell

I mean, there were various things in here that I thought were a little off-topic, but most of them were not, and that's what I liked so much about it. Books like this make my day, because they do a great job explaining what we think like.

Haphazard and incoherent

The first book does not follow any discernible or logical progression. Mostly a semi-random listing of statements that are brain-related and repeated in a strange order.

it seems that there has been no editor on this book, and no editing completed.

Wow

I was blown away with the overload of information that came from the pages (or sound MP3 files) of this book. You gotta appreciate people putting these giant books together for our learning and enjoyment. Thank you, and good luck to you both, author and narrator.

The most poorly written book I’ve encountered in 50 years

There are several critical flaws with this book. First it is completely disorganized. It talks about something then it jumps to a different topic. Then it jumps back to the first topic. Then it jumps to a third topic, and then it jumps back to the first topic, and it does this repeatedly in a entirely chaotic manner. Second, the book reads like a dull textbook, absent any antidotes that would bring human interest. The topic is rife with examples that would engage the reader. but the textbook only provides repetitive dictionary style definitions without context. Third, the book title is completely misleading. It has no coverage of the actual concept of neural plasticity. Instead, it talks about the functions of the various glands of the brain, in a very non-plastic sense. A fourth problem is that there are actual falsehoods proclaimed in the book. There is hocus-pocus about using frankincense and myrrh. Aside from these critical flaws, the book is simply a very poorly written arrangement of words, which sounds as though it was originally written in a non-English language, and then someone translated it without correcting for variance in flow in the English language. If I could get my credit back, I would very much like to do so. Not recommended.

light and basic

Very little depth in any topic. I would expect this type of content to be served as an introduction in a high school class. There is also a mixed of well known pop culture myths that the author seems to take as fact.

Amateurish

Filled with questionable information, if not straight-up pseudoscience, it's not well written and is poorly narrated.

This is excellent

This is an excellent book bundle that you can use to learn more about yourself, the people you interact with, the brain in general, and so many brain disorders, personality disorders, neuro chemicals, and more. Good.

75/25

it's hard sometimes to take something seriously when word's are being mispronounced, but I'm the end not everyone is a neuroscientist. 😂
