Sample Book Insights:
#1 The human mind is made up of a tapestry of genetics, biology, and relationships that allow us to be interwoven into the superorganisms we call families, tribes, and cultures. Our deep evolutionary history accounts for the profound connections among our bodies, minds, and the nature and quality of our relationships.
#2 Our brains have multiple parallel tracks for processing conscious and unconscious information. The first is a set of early evolving, fast systems for our senses, motor movements, and bodily processes that we share with other animals. These are called implicit memory, the unconscious, or somatic memory.
#3 The brain processes everything unconsciously, which makes us extremely vulnerable to misperceptions and misinformation. The greater the distortions, the more difficult it is to successfully love and work.
#4 The first few years of life are a period of exuberant brain development, and early experience has a disproportionate impact on the development of the brain’s information superhighways. Good parents and environments can shape a child’s brain in ways that will benefit them throughout life.
