Lots of useful research (although I've read much of it elsewhere). That I've heard it in other books is not a bad thing, its just certain ideas/concepts and stories (Phineas Gage, anyone?) get brought up in lots of books. I love reading this type of book because I often catch myself doing/saying things that only prove what the book was trying to say. Insight is a powerful part of how my life has changed as a result of reading this 'type' of book.......
