In the mind-Gut Connection, Dr. Emeran mayer, executive director of the ucla center for Neurobiology of Stress, offers a revolutionary look at this developing science, teaching us how to harness the power of the mind-gut connection to take charge of our health. The mind-gut connection shows how to keep the brain-gut communication clear and balanced to:• heal the gut by focusing on a plant-based diet• balance the microbiome by consuming fermented foods and probiotics, and depression• prevent and heal GI disorders such as leaky gut syndrome, fasting, anxiety, moodiness, food sensitivities and allergies, and IBS, and cutting out sugar and processed foods• promote weight loss by detoxifying and creating healthy digestion and maximum nutrient absorption• boost immunity and prevent the onset of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s andAlzheimer’s• generate a happier mindset and reduce fatigue, as well as digestive discomfort such as heartburn and bloating• and much more.

While the dialogue between the gut and the brain has been recognized by ancient healing traditions, Western medicine has failed to appreciate the complexity of how the brain, including Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, and more recently, gut, the microbiome—the microorganisms that live inside us—communicate with one another.

. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with the latest discoveries on the human microbiome, a practical guide in the tradition of Wheat Belly and Grain Brain that conclusively demonstrates the inextricable, biological link between mind and body. We have all experienced the connection between our mind and our gut—the decision we made because it “felt right”; the butterflies in our stomach before a big meeting; the anxious stomach rumbling when we’re stressed out.

Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain: How a New Science Reveals Our Extraordinary Potential to Transform Ourselves

. Praise for train your mind, change Your Brain   “There are two great things about this book. This is a terrific book. Robert M. With her gift for making science accessible, meaningful, and compelling, science writer Sharon Begley illuminates a profound shift in our understanding of how the brain and the mind interact and takes us to the leading edge of a revolution in what it means to be human.

Sapolsky, author of why zebras Don’t Get Ulcers   “Excellent. Elegant and lucid prose. One is that it shows us how nothing about our brains is set in stone. And as scientists are learning from studies performed on Buddhist monks, so can the mind and, it is not only the outside world that can change the brain, in particular, focused attention through the classic Buddhist practice of mindfulness.

The other is that it is written by Sharon Begley, one of the best science writers around. The brain can adapt, compensate for disabilities, renew itself after trauma, rewire itself to overcome dyslexia, heal, and break cycles of depression and OCD. Cutting-edge science and the ancient wisdom of Buddhism have come together to reveal that, contrary to popular belief, we have the power to literally change our brains by changing our minds.

. Recent pioneering experiments in neuroplasticity—the ability of the brain to change in response to experience—reveal that the brain is capable of altering its structure and function, and even of generating new neurons, a power we retain well into old age. Begley is superb at framing the latest facts within the larger context of the field.

Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work

We seek out information that supports us and downplay information that doesn’t. Chip and dan heath, the bestselling authors of Switch and Made to Stick, tackle one of the most critical topics in our work and personal lives: how to make better decisions. Research in psychology has revealed that our decisions are disrupted by an array of biases and irrationalities: We’re overconfident.

When it comes to making choices, it seems, our brains are flawed instruments. Because the right decision, at the right moment, can make all the difference. Unfortunately, merely being aware of these shortcomings doesn’t fix the problem, any more than knowing that we are nearsighted helps us to see. Written in an engaging and compulsively readable style, from a rock star’s ingenious decision-making trick to a CEO’s disastrous acquisition, Decisive takes readers on an unforgettable journey, to a single question that can often resolve thorny personal decisions.

Along the way, we learn the answers to critical questions like these: how can we stop the cycle of agonizing over our decisions? How can we make group decisions without destructive politics? And how can we ensure that we don’t overlook precious opportunities to change our course?    Decisive is the Heath brothers’ most powerful—and important—book yet, offering fresh strategies and practical tools enabling us to make better choices.

We get distracted by short-term emotions. The real question is: how can we do better?   In Decisive, based on an exhaustive study of the decision-making literature, the Heaths, introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases.
