The subtitle is a screaming clue as to where your expectations should be set before reading. I clearly missed it, or was a little too optimistic, because this ended up a self-help book with roughly 30% of the inspiring science woven in.

This would have been such a great book if they'd stripped the self-help out and allowed the authors to expand on the research they've done going back to the 70s.

Link to my Goodreads expanded review in comments.

I'm not done but loving it. Very interesting. I found the reason why I look so young! Molecular biology is just fascinating!

Note how it says "...and Other Clinical Tales" there in the title. This book definitely is technical, and it can easily go over your head if you don't have a base understanding of neuroscience. It's great if you feel like you want to challenge your understanding, but I don't recommend it as a light read.

it's too complex for me .too much literature not science.

Ooooooo, I've been waiting to get my hands on these for awhile now. I read the essay Point of Attachment and fell in love with David Quammen's prose. It's like listening to a favorite uncle telling all the magical tales of the world. I'll have to wait a few weeks to start though, I'm still working on for other books.
