Reviews
"These mental techniques help you to experience your body and even your heart in a new way. Fehmi grounds his plan in research and patient anecdotes showing the techniques can reduce pain and improve relationships and athletic performance."
--Publishers Weekly

"Fehmi and award-winning science writer and journalist Robbins present a convincing argument for the effectiveness of neurofeedback in a self-help format for those who want to try the techniques . . . This well-written book will be of interest to anyone in the alternative healing community."
--Library Journal

"Based on thirty-plus years of research and professional experience, this book reveals a startling truth: how you deploy your attention in your daily life is centrally important for your mental and physical health. It also describes a breakthrough methodology for overcoming depression, anxiety, and other hard-to-manage emotional states. As a colleague of Dr. Fehmi from the earliest days of brainwave-biofeedback research, I can trust the credibility of his reports. He is a creative and critical thinker in the field. I heartily recommend this book."
--Joe Kamiya, PhD, research psychologist at Langley Porter Institute of Psychiatry

"I've used the Open-Focus techniques in my work with NFL players, and I've shared this knowledge with other athletes and coaches. These attention exercises are applicable across all disciplines."
--Bob Ward, Director of Sports Science, former conditioning coach for the Dallas Cowboys

"The techniques described in this book can make life fuller, more enjoyable, and more productive. I recommend it."
--Andrew Weil, MD, author of Healthy Aging
