SUPERBETTER A Revolutionary Approach to Getting Stronger, Happier, Braver and More Resilient

by | Read by Jane McGonigal

Personal Growth • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

The core idea in this audiobook is that playing video games with others can improve a person's ability to recover from traumatic brain injury and respond to stress, pain, and other life challenges. For this optimistic advice on connecting with others through games, the author's innocent charm and cheery tones are perfect. Engaging listeners with rhetorical questions and a palpable desire to help, she references research that describes how our neurological and physiological states sync with those of others when engaged in game playing. In these connected states, people learn to share, trust, and negotiate differences for the common good. When we immerse ourselves in these game environments, the repetition of certain emotional dynamics strengthens not only our confidence but also our compassion, determination, and willpower.
