TED 2008 – Jill Bolte Taylor: Neuroanatomist

  I woke up this morning and was synching my ipod with my computer when i noticed that there was a TED talk by a neuroanatomist on my podcast subscription, being a biology student i was curious to check it out immediately ( remembering the a previous interesting talk by a neuroscientist). For twenty minutes i was in a state of …. well i can’t sort of describe it perfectly – this is one of the best talks that I’ve listened to with so much attention that i was oblivious to what was happening around. I would definitely recommend this talk to anybody and everybody.

  2. I’ve been recommending “My Stroke of Insight” to everyone I know. It’s the best book I’ve read all year! You can get Jill’s book from Amazon for a good discount.
    Here’s the link:

  3. I read “My Stroke of Insight” in one sitting – I couldn’t put it down. I laughed. I cried. It was a fantastic book (I heard it’s a NYTimes Bestseller and I can see why!), but I also think it will be the start of a new, transformative Movement! No one wants to have a stroke as Jill Bolte Taylor did, but her experience can teach us all how to live better lives. Her TED.com speech was one of the most incredibly moving, stimulating, wonderful videos I’ve ever seen. Her Oprah Soul Series interviews were fascinating. They should make a movie of her life so everyone sees it. This is the Real Deal and gives me hope for humanity.

  4. The New York Times Sunday Newspaper on May 25 had a great two page article on Jill Bolte Taylor and her book, “MY STROKE OF INSIGHT”. Her book is a must read and this NY Times article – called “A Superhighway to bliss” is worth checking out too.
