I'm not sure what to make of this book really. I got it from a bibliography from all things of a book about trading. So I was thinking I would get something on spiritualism or motivation/self improvement. Something along those lines. The book mostly focused on fairly high level biology of cell behavior. What was kind of funny is he inferred he did not want to get too technical being a biology professor then proceeded to spend about three-fourths of the book talking about technical biology matters. For me anyway. The tie in from biology to belief was vague. There were nuggets of interesting things he pointed out about learning and being programmed that refuted the hard wired concepts of genetics. At the very conclusion he got into some of the things I was anticipating in the book but also gave what I construed as the typical sermon of new age principles relating to the environment and living in harmony with nature. I can hardly endorse the book due to the far flung nature of the things he gets into but for some it might just be their cup of tea.

Lipton is a cell biologist whose “study of cells turned [him] into a spiritual person.” This is a highly readable science book, defining how beliefs control behavior and gene activity, and consequently the unfolding of our lives. It’s a fun learning tool that doesn’t dig too deeply, with an uplifting message.

Belief truly is biological. One interesting topic that Lipton addresses is the placebo effect. It “is quickly glossed over in medical schools so that students can get to the real tools of modern medicine like drugs and surgery. This is a giant mistake. The placebo affect should be a major topic of study in medical school.” Of course, Lipton is a realist; he realizes placebo pills are a threat to the pharmaceutical industry, as well as the scalpel holders, and Lipton is not one to mince words.

It should be pointed out that this is no dry textbook; it borders in places on metaphysical and holistic speculation. But the book is so darn fun. In this light, do not ignore the epilogue; it’s the best part of the book, where Lipton deals with speculative conclusions regarding our “me-ness” and the power of the mind that transformed him into a bubbly, optimistic believer. His “aha” moment was the realization that every protein in our bodies is a physical/electromagnetic complement to something in the environment … that environment being the universe, or to many, God. As we are inextricably intertwined with the divine, survival of the fittest turns out to mean survival of the most loving. ( )

Should be an very interesting book - Steve

Well written book that explains current understanding of cell governance. Author argues that the cell is primarely dependant upon external electro-magnetic fields for moment to moment operation. The nucleus is primarely concerned with re-production. It is the receptor and effector proteins embedded in the membrain of a cell that receive and transmit external data to the internal mechanisms of the cell including the protein sleves that control how the DNA functions.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975991477, Hardcover)

The Biology of Belief is a groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology. Author Dr. Bruce Lipton is a former medical school professor and research scientist. His experiments, and those of other leading-edge scientists, have examined in great detail the processes by which cells receive information. The implications of this research radically change our understanding of life. 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 positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Lipton's profoundly hopeful synthesis of the latest and best research in cell biology and quantum physics is being hailed as a major breakthrough showing that our bodies can be changed as we retrain our thinking.
