This groundbreaking book, from one of the global innovators in the integration of brain science with psychotherapy, offers an extraordinary guide to the practice of 'mindsight,' the potent skill that is the basis for both emotional and social intelligence. From anxiety to depression and feelings of shame and inadequacy, from mood swings to addictions, OCD, and traumatic memories, most of us have a mental 'trap' that causes recurring conflict in our lives and relationships. Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine and co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, shows us how to use mindsight to escape these traps. Through his synthesis of a broad range of scientific research with applications to everyday life, Dr. Siegel has developed novel approaches that have helped hundreds of patients free themselves from obstacles blocking their happiness. By cultivating mindsight, all of us can effect positive, lasting changes in our brains—and our lives. A book as inspiring as it is profound, Mindsight can help us master our emotions, heal our relationships, and reach our fullest potential.

About The Author

Daniel J. Siegel received his medical degree from Harvard University and completed his postgraduate medical education at the University of California, Los Angeles, with training in pediatrics, general adult psychiatry, and child and adolescent psychiatry. He has served as a National Institute of Mental Health Research Fellow at UCLA, where he studied family interactions, with an emphasis on how attachment experiences influence emotions, behavioral regulation, autobiographical memory and narrative processes.

Industry Reviews

"In his new, wise, and utterly approachable book, Dr. Siegel uses beautiful and often remarkable case histories to show us how we can change our minds, brains, relationships, and even the course of certain mental illnesses."--Norman Doidge, M.D., author of The Brain That Changes Itself

"Will forever change the way we understand ourselves and our relationships."--Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of Reviving Ophelia and Seeking Peace "Accessible and visionary, Mindsight is bound to be a classic."--Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart

"[A] revolutionary book." --The Boston Globe

"Utterly compelling . . . life-altering."--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are

"An exciting exploration of how a troubled mind can right itself."--Publishers Weekly

Scientific knowledge through the eyes of a storyteller


Tackling a subject like the brain or psychology may have been heavy and technical in the hands of an academic minded writer. However, Dr Siegel writes so easily and clearly you feel as if he is a storyteller, basing his scientific explanations on real people and real life experiences. It is an inspiring book, giving practical explanations along the way. I have already bought another copy of this book for a family member and will continue to refer to it.
