Life changing, and don’t listen to anybody saying the PDF is not available.

This book is seriously life altering. I’m excited to see how this works after the 62 days. There’s a lot of information here! I happen to love her accent. Please look in the main menu for the PDF, it is most certainly there.

Cool research, but very repetitive

Like another reviewer mentioned, the content in this audiobook is very repetitive--to the point that I wondered if I should continue at some points. Aside from that, the content does share a helpful method for reframing negative thoughts along with practical examples of how to do so. But I can't help wishing it were more concise and cut out all of the fluff. I think the author's YouTube videos on the topic of neurocycling are better in that respect.

Maybe a rewrite??

Wow. I’m only saying this in the hopes an author can revise this. I couldn’t even finish it. The repetitive information is killing me so I finally just went to the chapter that by title should lay out the 5 steps in detail and from the lost earring story to the head severed story, I got nothing except what was already repeated over and over again and I just had enough. I think a professional reader would do this book some good too.

Don't buy this book buy the app instead

heard about this women on a podcast and i thought she was so great and the ideas were so interesting i wanted to read about them. There is useful information in this book but it's literally read as a ad. she repeats the same phrases literally 5 or so times every chapter and it essentially boils down to a 6 hour ad for her app(which also costs money) overall terrible book great ideas though if explained properly. Save your time and get the app instead if you are interested like i was.

Great info but lots of missing visuals you need

I desperately need the PDFs of the images she talks so much about. Fantastic tools but also so vast... I wish I could have a simple, written one-page summary of the steps to start using right away.

I knew with in 20 seconds that this book was going to disappoint

Your body can go 40+ days without food. Over a week with out water....

There is no forced treatment in mental health.
I know for a FACT... the ones that are made to make their own decisions in a state of psychosis because it is “their right” suffer the most.

So disappointed in this book.

PDF available?!

I called Audible and put a ticket in due to no pdf. They mentioned they would contact the seller and try to correct this issue. The audible help desk person saw the PDF and wouldn’t email it. Frustrating and I hope they can resolve this for all!!!!

just a sales pitch for the app

I'm not interested in paying for an app......all the book talks about is the research and how the process can help but never gives you any solid instructions.

A MUST BUY/READ/LISTEN TO!!!!

Friends, we’ve been lied to!! If you’ve ever been professionally (or self) diagnosed with a mental disorder that has left you feeling broken or un-healable...guess what...THERE IS HOPE!!! Our brains CAN change! This book brings so much hope, joy and love! Personal change CAN happen! Scientifically!! Not just wishful thinking! Dr. Leaf, thank you so much for all of your hours of Brain Building and research to be able to share your knowledge with the world! I greatly appreciate you, your life’s work and this book! I apologize that I have not heard of you before this past week. I was watching YouTube videos and God allowed it to “randomly” play the next video which was you speaking at a church. I usually stop and just search whatever I was interested in that day but I felt a stirring to listen all the way through (over an hour message)! I was so curious! I kept clicking on more and more videos. Bought the audiobook and just finished it (only days after I ordered it!)! I have been hungry for this kind of logical, simple step by step instructions to help me through so very difficult thought processing. Your book has been a KEY to help unlock mysteries that I have begged God to help me with! I am telling everyone about your work! Your intelligence, beauty, research and positivity are changing many mini-worlds that you may never realize!!! Thank you so very much!
Just found your app and I keep thinking “She gets better and better!” I appreciate you and your entire family’s mission to help so many! ❤️

Read it!

Taught me a way to think, that way works. Had it kind of figured out myself as a child, until my choice to remain in a narcissistic relationship blocked me off from my wisdom, knowledge, confidence, piece of mind and happiness. Getting those back, building upon them, thanks Caroline!

very informative

The book has opened my eyes and strengthened the importance of channeling how you think, but also how you eat and take care of yourself. Your body is a temple, and treat it as one

Fair Play

Authors Voice is calming to listen too. I simultaneously used the neuro cycle App whilst listening to the Audio Book over a couple of weeks.
This gave me a lot better understanding and confidence that the program would work. So far after
11 days in my sleep has improved dramatically. Mainly due to doing my writing every morning vis the app. Yes, there is a lot of repetition in the book, In my opinion it's needed to remember better.

Game changer

Thank you so much. The thought of really listening to and breaking down my toxic thoughts scared me so much at first I immediately deleted the whole audio book 😂

I soon recovered and have since started using the app. Your technique is really helping me. I have stopped trying to push away my thoughts, and rather look at them with curious eyes and ask them what they are trying to tell me in a positive and constructive way. After a bit of attention, they much more obediently settle comfortably back into my head .

This book is repetitive, but only in that it repeatedly addresses key points, which I found useful.

monotonous reading of research material.

I bought this book after watching her interview on Youtube and was interested in applying specific 5 steps she continually mentioned. To come to those 5 steps you need to endure listening for hours about her research that led to writing this book then some really weird examples of their application ( lost earing in her bath tub)...I fell asleep several times while listening in the middle of the day waiting for her to get to the point. Too much info on research and her"Leaf" scale of rating and too long for anyone who is looking to help themselves as the instructors on exactly how to do that are nowhere as detailed and long or relatable as they would have to be. I was so excited to start listening to this book but that quickly ( or not so quickly as I was nearly 4 hours in before she even started talking about those steps) turned into disappointment and frustration. I do appreciate all the research she has done but I truly don't need to know every detail of it, every step she took in order to prove that these steps work and countless comparison between the test groups as that just felt like reading a very lengthy research paper that you never intended to read...she could have shortened the whole book for at least 40% and go to the point of it as per it's title ( editing ).
