Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon's Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart

Extraordinary things happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heartGrowing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart.Doty would go on to put Ruths practices to work with extraordinary resultspower and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruths most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous resultsuntil he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts....

  • Justin

    I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review.

    This book is a quality spiritual tale along the lines of Coelho,Castenada and Millman. The author is genuine and the story is well told and engaging.

    The author breaks down the lessons from the story into a handful of exercises that you can practice to improve your life.

    To me the overall lesson of the book is to be more compassionate/loving to all people. When the author states this himself it is much more powerful, powerful enough

    Intriguing and thought provoking read!

    Not knowing what to expect from this book I was surprised to find it speaking directly to my own experiences and beliefs! I devoured this book all the while thinking "finally, someone who put this in simple understandable terms and a story!". It is hard to impart the vision of drawing energy from mental clearing and positive thinking. I especially loved the "foggy window" exercise. It made a great visual for the mind.

    Even though reading his story (and of cou

    I've read this book because it was recommended by BTS and one of the songs on their new album is called "Magic Shop" and it's been hinted clearly that it's about the psychological process used in therapy where a patient and the psychiatrist play out a magic shop, the patient exchanging past traumatic and painful memories with happier ones. Basically, this is what this book has at its starting point.

    It sounds... intriguing, but unfortunately, I never had any contact with psychology before and no

    Um grande livro, que nos faz refletir e nos ensina muito coisas.

    Opinião futuramente no blog.

  • Charlene

    This was basically Tuesdays With Morrie with some neuroscience thrown in. Far too sensational. Far too exaggerated. Far too ...... everything. Was he really that insightful at such a young age? Is any of that even true? Was Ruth that insightful? I doubt it. This reads more like a morphed memory of how he became a neurosurgeon. If it were an historical fiction book, I am sure I would have enjoyed it. But, passing off this much sensation as fact, even if it has a lot of obvious truth to it, is ext ...more

    I received an ARC of this book from the publisher through Net Galley, for an honest review. Please note that this book is not set to publish until February 2016.

    Honestly, great book. It is well written and engages the reader. There are instances where the author explains things in some technical medical terms; but, he goes on to explain so that the layman will understand. There are parts of the book that brought me to tears. It is a memoir as well as an instructional guide on how to become a bet

    I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review.

    I tend to read many books in the narrative self help genre. I enjoy authors like Dan Millman, Paulo Coelho, and Carlos Castaneda. This book fits well among the aforementioned authors' works. It is an enjoyable read that is filled with practical examples.

    I definitely learned some things from this book. The only thing preventing this book from having 5 stars is that there are a handful of deeper, denser books that this one pales too.
