    This talk was amazing...I didnt find it was about how doctors don't know much about the brain and are learning so much only recently, but rather it was about how when the mind is freed of the overarching analytical verbal thinking of the left brain the previously unnoticible or less  noticeable creative, experiencial, expansive, spiritual right brain takes over how we percieve the world. ANd that is very different from how we usually live. IT was especially different for this research scientist...when she had her stroke he left brain shut down and it actually gave her many gifts.
    Or perhaps I confound the content of the book and the TED talk. Though I remember when I saw the TED talk I felt the gist was the same as the book.

    •  Oh her talk is much more about the personal (3+ / 0-)

      experience, living through the stroke and aspects of recovery. How the side of the brain it occurs on makes it very different is definitely important. Especially in our left brain focused culture. Hadn't heard of the book.

      I have a separate bucket just for the books...
