Dr. Doty combines three seemingly disparate topics of his personal story, practical meditation exercises, and his expertise in neuroscience into an easy to read format that is inspirational and informative.

The story is less important than the take-away: learn to breath/meditate, thus controlling your thoughts and emotions.

Dr. Doty wants us to consider that the heart is more than a pump- that the heart sends as many signals to the brain as the brain sends to the heart.
