"The Brain's Way of Healing": An Accessible Introduction to Neuroplasticity

In this week's #readinglist post (the 4th) I am covering one of the most interesting and enjoyable books on neurology, neuroplasticity and neuropsychology I have ever read.

This may be because I read it for the first time when I was only setting out on my own learning journey, but I still enjoy flipping through it or listening to specific chapters or case studies it contains.

"The Brain's Way of Healing" by Norman Doidge presents a compelling concept in simple terms: our brains have the remarkable capacity to adapt and mend.

This book serves as an excellent first read for those unfamiliar with the intricacies of neurology and psychology.

The book is populated with real-life examples of individuals who have achieved astounding recoveries, illustrating the brain’s remarkable abilities. Despite the title's focus on healing,, the book is also relevant to personal development, encouraging the reader to embrace new pursuits or alter existing behaviours through the power of neuroplasticity.

Doidge offers explanations of brain science in a manner that is digestible and engaging, steering clear of excessive technical language. He explains complex topics with simple clarity and precision.

So, whether you want to learn how to heal from a challenge you have faced or are seeking to understanding how our brains can contribute to personal enhancement, "The Brain's Way of Healing" is a sensible, informative and well written starting block.

You can get a copy on Amazon here:

Enjoy the read.
