Just a few decades ago, experts believed the brain was fixed, unchanging and that it was hardwired like a machine. But now there’s a new sheriff in brain research town and his name is “Neuroplasticity.” This revolutionary discovery shows that the brain is actually a living, plastic organ capable of rewiring itself. In The Brain That Changes Itself, Dr. Norman Doidge introduces principles we can all use to overcome brain limitations while sharing riveting case studies that were once deemed hopeless, including a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, lifelong depression dissipating and blind people learning to see.

An outstanding book

I've read this book three times, that's how interesting it is. My original reason for purchasing the book is because my fiance has a traumatic brain injury and during the time of his recovery I wanted to read something that would inform me about the brain and how it, well, changes itself. I learned a lot about the brain from reading this book as well got a dose of much needed hope at the time.

Interesting!
