Imagine your favorite teacher ever—the one who had passion for his subject, loved to explain, and found just the right images to make difficult information understandable. If you haven't been lucky enough to have this experience, that’s all the more reason to listen to this audio. Amen is clearly dedicated to dispelling negativity about mental illness and making his brain research accessible and usable to those who need it. He breaks down the five sections of the brain, describing the characteristics of each and offering "prescriptions" ranging from medications to step-by-step brain games to change behavior and improve life. The audio is filled with stories from history, literature, his own life, and, most helpfully and spectacularly, the many successes he's encountered in his practice.
