Pocket Guide to Interpersonal Neurobiology
by Daniel J. Siegel, M.D.
… a unique contribution to the understanding of how our minds, brains and relationships develop and interrelate. Although titled a pocket guide, (you will need a big pocket) it is actually an incredible and rich resource for exploring this new territory…This book is valuable to a wide range of readers: professionals who are in the helping professions, organizers of business or social programs, educators and parents… an essential part of anyone’s library on understanding the current science of the human mind.

What is the mind? What makes a healthy mind? How do we become aware and come to know about life? And perhaps most importantly, what are the connections among the mind, brain, and relationships? From psychologists to linguists, neuroscientists to philosophers, people have explored the nature of mental life, yet no interdisciplinary framework has existed for wisely answering these fundamental questions or even offering a definition of what the mind is. Here, Siegel bridges domains of knowledge to offer a book that reveals the way the mind works via a format that reflects the brain’s natural mode of learning (flip the Pocket Guide open to any page and you will find an “entry point” that guides you to explore, in your own way, the web of integrated knowledge). Walking us through the intricate foundations of interpersonal neurobiology, Siegel allows us to see the personal and professional applications of this exciting new approach to developing a healthy mind, an integrated brain, and empathic relationships.
