With more than 100,000 copies sold of his self-published book, The Biology of Belief, Bruce Lipton teams up with Hay House to bring his message to an even wider audience. This book is a groundbreaking work in the field of new biology, and it will forever change how you think about thinking. Through the research of Dr. Lipton and other leading-edge scientists, stunning new discoveries have been made about the interaction between your mind and body and the processes by which cells receive information. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology, that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our thoughts. Using simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of Epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

This book is a pseudo-scientific claptrap. Using his phD as leverage into making his claims legitimate is both disgusting and unprofessional. There is a reason this book was first self-published and then published vis--vis a non-scholary peer reviewed publishing house. His foray into morphic theory says it all. Where morphic theory is in line with such unscientific fringe garbage as telepathy and astrology. This book defecates on the laps of the scientific literate. His mere citation of evolutionary biology's founding father Charles Darwin in a theory equating good thoughts with genetic well being is part of the symptomatology of the disease of the American public which are falling behind internationally in the STEM subjects (ie science, technology, engineering and math). It fully deserves the rating of 0.

I enjoy the passion Bruce Lipton had for what he believes. I think the explanation that he gives for the action, and function of the cells and it's relation to genes is very interesting. I also agree that the fact that people are healed often by the 'placebo' effect should not be pushed aside but actually studied. What I did not care for while reading was the constant nagging thought in the back of my mind, "What happened to the editor of this book?" He is very repetitive throughout the book, and other than a few cute stories, seems to continue to go back into explaining the science, over and over again. The other problem I have is that in order to use this science that he claims works, he seems to be disregarding good, talented scientists as almost ignorant and blinded by antiquity theories, for not being in agreement with his ideas. He shows no research or test subjects or trials to even prove or disprove his own findings.
He ends his book with recommendations of Rob Williams who does seminars right after he is finished with his science explanations. Rob Williams charges $1,000 for a seat to his big seminars explaining PSYCHE-K. This is the old snake oil "Muscle Testing" technique. There is nothing new with the practices. If Bruce Lipton is earning a good living pairing with this guy and satisfied with what he has, I think as a scientist he is doing a great disservice, by not continuing the research of what he claims was life changing. You can't use Rob Williams theories of tapping into the subconscious through proven fake 'muscle testing' techniques, saying that is what proves your science. Then in turn, on the radio anytime someone is healed through God, a miracle, a woman lifting a car (due to adrenaline) to save her child, or a placebo effect claim that all those things prove your science. His explanations and theories could have some great possibilities, maybe another scientist will pick up where he left off and do some real great things with it. But if you buy into the package he's selling, I got a swamp for sale.
