Anatomy of Success: The Science of Inheriting Your Brain’s Wealth & Power While You’re Still Alive! by Saleem Bidaoui

I can not say enough about this marvelous book! By the time I had read half of it I was already changing my outlook on life. Saleem Bidaoui has a way with words that gives the reader the feeling he is talking to them directly. The book is in two parts, Part 1 dealing specifically with the physical and scientific makeup of the brain and how its network runs. This is important. Where many books will present very similar ideas toward positive thinking, rarely do we read about the brain itself. What is even more amazing is that it is fully understandable to anyone. I learned what part of my brain receives what part of my consciousness, more surprising in the presentation than what I would have thought.

There are many examples from his own life that allow a strong perception that this man knows what he is talking about because he has experienced it himself firsthand. The book flows beautifully and conversationally. It reads like a speech, and yet not like a lecture. There are many wonderful and sometimes witty quotes throughout the book and a couple of times I laughed out loud, not something you would normally expect from a book on psychological aspects. I reiterate, this book is phenomenal in reaching even a mind such as mine which has held on to too many negative feelings... until today!

Part 2 of the book gives the reader the means to turn the mind to positive. Unlearn the negative so to speak, focus on what you want out of life, whether riches, or just to be a happy, positive human being. For me as a senior citizen this will mean feeling fulfilled, being active, leaving the negative past behind and making new memories. These are some of the lessons learned. I would have read the book all in one go, it read so easily, but I often found myself reading some passages again just to bring them foremost to my goals. I enthusiastically recommend this book for everybody! Easy to understand, and by his own words "not a magic pill", it is an adventure in getting the most out of life, and I for one am looking forward to the ride of my life!

I also agree with your well explained comments about this book "Anatomy of success" as well as on the Author himself. Saleem is wonderful and you can tell what type of person he is through each line you read. He is like talking to you personally and discussing and sharing your thought and you almost want on occasion to answer him back. I truly believe that it is a real treasure. Anybody who wishes to change his/her life for the better should read it.
