This plainspoken audio describes how to improve the overactivity in our brains, which wastes mental energy and makes it harder to focus and be productive. The author/narrator, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, writes with remarkable lucidity. His confident, relaxed pacing and clear baritone voice make listeners curious about this information and hopeful about their symptoms. Like a lot of neuroscientists who study mental functioning, he anchors his descriptions of typical brain malfunctions to specific locations in the brain. The mechanical clarity of these explanations helps listeners focus on concrete causes and solutions instead of feeling helpless or blaming themselves. And though the solutions offered here still require initiative and effort, his vivid writing and healing vocal tone will help listeners want to put these strategies into action.
