I thought I knew a fair bit about neurofeedback -- one of my good friends is a neurofeedback practitioner after all. This book surprised me -- it's organized so simply and so well that the reader can't help but come away with a comprehensive view of what neurofeedback is, how it works, and for what conditions. It filled in gaps in my knowledge I didn't know I had.
Even better, Neurofeedback 101 is a real pleasure to read. Every explanation is accompanied by an actual case study. These real-life anecdotes were fascinating. People of all ages and lifestyles are presented, with a variety of issues: Anxiety, depression, ADHD, sleep disorders, mental focus and more.
What's especially refreshing is Mr. Cohen's honesty. Not every case works out easily like a TV show. He seems to take great care to present where difficulties ensued that required new strategies.
The great promise of neurofeedback is that this therapy tackles pervasive health problems without drugs. For many who are caught in the cycle of ever-decreasing effectiveness of their meds while dealing with unpleasant side effects, neurofeedback can almost seem like a miracle treatment.
I suspect medical professionals are going to want to read this comprehensive yet down-to-earth book, to discover where they might be able to help their own patients who are stuck in a perpetual loop on a particular issue. The extensive Q&A finale alone will inspire neurofeedback practitioners to hand Neurofeedback 101 to their clients.
Succinct, engaging, direct -- this is well worth the purchase. It wouldn't surprise me if Neurofeedback 101 became the neurofeedback go-to reference for years to come.
