Publisher's Summary

Phobia, a word that we have all probably heard, usually in conjunction with another word. A phobia is an irrational fear of something. The word phobia comes from the greek god Phobos, who was literally the god of fear.

Why do we have phobias? Why can they be so intense and irrational? Is there a difference between being afraid of something, and having a phobia of it? Are there any signs to indicate a phobia? How do you overcome one?
What exactly is manic depression? Does it turn you into a really crazy, sad person? What does it do to people? Are there any signs? Are there any treatments? What triggers manic depression? Have any tests been done? How do we help people who have it? Are there any changes in the brain? What causes Tourette’s Syndrome? How does it manifest? How do I know if either myself or someone else has it? Is it dangerous? What causes the tics? How do I handle them at home and school? Are there coping strategies? Are there any treatments for this disease?

If you have ever asked any of these questions and want answers, stop dawdling, buy this audiobook, and start listening!

This is a great way to learn more

The things they describe in this book, in a general sense, just give you a better way to understand the human brain more. Even if the specific subtopics don't apply to your everyday situation, it's good to know about them and get those insights.

Perfect

Well, maybe not exactly perfect, but it's a really good book. If you're looking for something neurological, something about the brain, this is it. This is what you should get.

good information but the book was gender exclusive

would rather the author refer to humans as they instead of him or himself and specifying for a woman. info was great though.

Very good

I am trying to mention something bad about this audiobook, but I can not. It's just way too good. So without more exaggeration, I just believe everybody should think of listening to it.

Excellent

I hope you will take my thoughts seriously, as I highly recommend this guide to you. It may have had a few mistakes, but they didn't subtract anything from the amazing information that this book contains. You can learn a lot. I know that I did.

‘The Tourette’s syndrome kid’…Really!?

To start I must point out that I have only listen to the Chapters on Tourette’s syndrome. As a mum of a child with TS and as a nurse I was looking for a scientific book to help me increase my knowledge. This is not that book. Unfortunately it is full of questionable knowledge and it repeats information frequently. This may be a good book for someone who has no idea at all what TS is, and quite possibly the chapters on depression and phobias could have value however I found it less that helpful.
The title ‘Neuroscience’ is misleading the TS chapters had very little if any science in them and no references were given. Also the author refers to a child with TS as ‘the Tourette’s syndrome kid’ this is quite offensive. You wouldn’t say the Asthma kid or the eczema kid - well maybe you would if you were naming some interesting superheroes, but other than that it is not appropriate - I could have possibly forgiven this in a book tiled ‘My thoughts and feelings on depression, phobias and Tourette’s syndrome’ but not if a book titled neuroscience.
