In his new book, Dr. Heemsbergen shows that the best insights into leadership can come not from what leaders are thinking, but from how leaders think. The author suggests a fresh approach to how leaders can think, and describes the necessary processes and tools required to improve the leader's capability in volatile and complex times. Leveraging extensive research findings and observations, the author makes some unexpected connections between: brain research and how leaders think; the artistic process; our knowledge of the nonconscious; and leadership development. Heemsbergen, a psychologist, university lecturer and developer of leaders has developed new powerful metaphor tools from artistic practice and brain research to help leaders probe deeply into their perceptions, thoughts and emotions and uncover those things that they don't even know, they don't know. There is much that goes on in the mind that we're not aware of, and most of what influences what leaders say and do occurs below the water line of the iceberg at the nonconscious level. That's why need new methods, techniques and tools are required to get at what leaders don't know they know. Leaders also need to develop a "beginner's mind", become better sensors and see things with fresh eyes. Much of what leaders do in organizations is based on the idea of finding the right answer to a question. Unfortunately it is often assumed there is only one right answer, and we do not need to think about the topic further. In real life, much of what is known is in a state of flux, waiting for a new bit of evidence to modify the knowledge. To assist leaders in becoming more effective the author has developed methods and tools based on neuropsychology, psychoanalysis, and artistic practice. He calls it the (H-SAT), the Heemsbergen Sensory Awareness Tools. These tools assist in: uncovering the mental models that guide leadership behavior, illuminating leadership blindspots, and improving leadership decision making capability. Heemsbergen concludes, "the eye, ear and body have been the most important tools for the gathering of information since the dawn of time. Using time tested methods of artistic practice in combination with breakthroughs in brain research opens the possibility for uncovering hidden leadership talent to deal more effectively with a complex and volatile world."

God is great—for your mental, physical, and spiritual health. Based on new evidence culled from brain-scan studies, a wide-reaching survey of people’s religious and spiritual experiences, and the authors’ analyses of adult drawings of God, neuroscientist Andrew Newberg and therapist Mark Robert Waldman offer the following breakthrough discoveries: • Not only do prayer and spiritual practice reduce stress, but just twelve minutes of meditation per day may slow down the aging process. • Contemplating a loving God rather than a punitive God reduces anxiety and depression and increases feelings of security, compassion, and love. • Fundamentalism, in and of itself, can be personally beneficial, but the prejudice generated by extreme beliefs can permanently damage your brain. • Intense prayer and meditation permanently change numerous structures and functions in the brain, altering your values and the way you perceive reality. Both a revelatory work of modern science and a practical guide for readers to enhance their physical and emotional health, How God Changes Your Brain is a first-of-a-kind book about faith that is as credible as it is inspiring.

There are two types of brain tumours: primary brain tumours that originate in the brain and metastatic (secondary) brain tumours that originate from cancer cells that have migrated from other parts of the body. Primary brain cancer rarely spreads beyond the central nervous system, and death results from uncontrolled tumour growth within the limited space of the skull. Metastatic brain cancer indicates advanced disease and has a poor prognosis. Primary brain tumours can be cancerous or non-cancerous. Both types take up space in the brain and may cause serious symptoms (e.g., vision or hearing loss) and complications (e.g., stroke). All cancerous brain tumours are life threatening (malignant) because they have an aggressive and invasive nature. A non-cancerous primary brain tumour is life threatening when it compromises vital structures (e.g., an artery). This book brings together the leading research in this dynamic area of research.

Babies Need Mothers How Mothers Can Prevent Mental Illness in their Children is a rare example of careful conceptual reasoning about basic categories in medicine. Ultimately this is what is sorely needed in rational thinking about the mysteries of mental illness. This book is a fascinating contribution and well worth reading, precisely because it upsets the applecart. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get beyond rigid categorization in psychiatry and look at enduring problems of the mind in new ways. Raymond Moody, Author, Life After Life; MD, Psy.D, PhD Philosophy Dr. McKenzies book is revolutionary. Some long sought answers to causes of psychosis and other severe mental illnesses are explained in clear and understandable language. He not only describes cause and effect, but also provides clear remedies for healing that are unique and long lasting. He shows clearly and unmistakably the way to recover health, and his findings could change the prevailing way of treating chronic mental difficulties. Harold Stern, PhD, Psychoanalyst This book is a further development of ideas described in Delayed Posttraumatic Stress Disorders from Infancy: The Two Trauma Mechanism by Clancy D. McKenzie, MD and Lance S. Wright, MD. I have used this latter book in my courses at Georgetown University, in courses on the family and courses on philosophy of psychoanalysis. The ideas of the book were enlightening, stimulative and provocative. I plan to continue to use the ideas of Dr. McKenzie in my classes. In his new book Dr. McKenzie makes recommendations about child rearing practices. His new book is rich in ideas and promises a fruitful debate about the psychological origins of mental illness. No one will regret reading this book. Wilfried Ver Eecke Professor in Philosophy Adjunct Professor in Psychology Georgetown University
