Books I’m Reading

It seems like everyone is blogging about the books they are currently reading.  I’m sure this has something to do with the fact that the holiday’s are now over and people are getting around to making some purchases with their gift cards.

Anyway, I am a fan of reading, so I figured I’d throw my current reading list into the mix.

The first three are some cool books about the brain and how it controls the way we function, both physically and mentally. These books cover a variety of topics such as:

– Pain
– Our mind/body maps
– Neurological disorders
– Obsessive compulsive disorders

The Brain That Changes Itself

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph From the Frontiers of Brain Science by Norman Doidge


The Body Has A Mind of Its Own: How Body Maps in Your Brain Help You Do (Almost) Anything Better by Sandra and Mathew Blakeslee

mind and the brain

The Mind and The Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force by Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begley

This next book is one that I stumbled upon a few months ago and finally got around to picking it up. It is a book that goes over concepts of reading and interpreting research, and how to apply our findings to the real world.


How To Read A Paper: The Basics of Evidence Based Medicine by Trisha Greenhalgh

The final two are books that I have been meaning to pick up for some time now. They are filled with great information and I was really excited when I finally got them in the mail! The first one has some excellent guest chapters authored by Stuart McGill, Aaron Mattes, and Dr. Leahy (the developer of ART). The second is all about the nervous system and neurodynamics.
