Product description

Review

An utterly wonderful book - without question one of the most important books about the brain you will ever read; yet it is beautifully written, immensely approachable, and full of humanity. Its message is one of hope: it is not just our brains that shape our thinking, but our thinking that, very definitely, shapes our brains.

The power of positive thinking finally gains scientific credibility. Miracle-making stuff (Abigail Zuger The New York Times)

Doidge has identified a tidal shift in basic science and a potential one in medicine. The implications are monumental (Penny Wark The Times)

A wonderful and engaging way of re-imagining what kind of creatures we are (Jeanette Winterson The Guardian)

A remarkable and hopeful portrait of the endless adaptability of the human brain (Oliver Sacks author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat)

Book Description

An astonishing new scientific discovery called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the adult human brain is fixed and unchanging. It is, instead, able to change its own structure and function, even into old age.
