    1. Oh man I really took a chance on this one. And oh man do I feel like a dip. Who ate skittles and farted? My brain did when I bought this book. It's by Candice Pert (1946 – 2013) an American neuroscientist and pharmacologist who discovered the opiate receptor, the cellular binding site for endorphins in the brain, as well as being a distinguished lead researcher at the NIMH, who published over 250 scientific articles on peptides and their receptors and the role of these neuropeptides in the imm [...]

    2. The title of this book is misleading. This book is not about the molecules of emotion or explaining why you feel the way you feel. It is the outlet for author, scientist, and conference speaker Candace Pert chose to share her personal and professional history, toot her own horn so to speak, and educate the average person on the new paradigm in scientific research that promotes a holistic approach concerning mind, body, and soul. The way Pert makes it sound, she is spearheading the new paradigm m [...]

    3. I am slowly emerging from an alternate reality where the molecules of emotions reined. It was a world according to Candace Pert and I am talking, of course, about a book. What a journey and what a story! Molecules of Emotions: Why You Feel The Way You Feel by Candace Pert. The book reads incredibly well. It is autobiographical but not just. It is overall a perspective, a philosophy to Wellbeing. Her story begins to comprehend why centuries ago a decision was made creating a rift between the mind [...]

    4. Excellent account of the politics and egos and one-upmanship involved in big science, in this case molecular biology. Author is a scientist deeply involved in the discovery of the peptides that influence emotions a couple decades ago. She tells the story of the hard work and good luck necessary to find these elusive molecules, the challenge of being a woman in a field dominated by alpha males, and her own personal journey from a hard core materialist to exploring the connections between the mind [...]

    5. This is a really interesting story of the struggle that women go through in the scientific community. But really, you're not a superhero. And your writing is imprecise. And you contradict yourself. I read the whole thing, but was really frustrated along the way.

    6. Molecules of emotionsA book written by a scientist, which is (was) also a woman, and a superb human being, who walked a long road to be able to explain scientifically why she was the way she was, and how our emotions could predestine and predict our health and even our death. She had to fight for her knowledge in a world of men who took from her even her most precious scientific awards. This is a book, which will open your eyes to how our bodies and minds are parts of a higher existence.

    7. I decided to review this book as I go through it so my impressions are fresh. Why? Because as I began I found myself over-analyzing my own response to the writing. So be warned, this will be the longest review I have ever done by the time I am through with it.The author began by introducing herself and all her credentials. It crossed over the line from autobiography to bragging, making me question why she needed to spend so many pages telling me of her brilliance. Makes me a bit skeptical[Later [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book because Candace Pert is a scientist who has developed the skill of sharing her discoveries and scientific pursuits with diverse audiences. There is a hefty dose of science - explaining the way the body and mind communicate and her work on neurotransmitter receptors in the brain and body, AIDS research and the politics of science and pharmacology and her struggles as a woman in a male dominated field (especially in the 70s & 80s.)This is the first time I have read s [...]

    9. I loved this book! What an eye-opening experience! Candace Pert, PhD discovered the opiate receptor back in the 70's. Her discovery led to the making of SSRI drugs and all kinds of mood-altering substances that she warms against. Her book describes how your body is your subconscious mind, your health is a product of how you think about yourself. Taking many of the drugs on the market today alter the bodies chemistry, but that in a way that can be sustained. Pert give advice on how to actually ch [...]

    10. This was the first book that helped me to start connect the dots, energy-medicine wise, that the body is just a 'mirror' for the soul. Pert's assertion that the body is actual the subconscious mind made flesh completely blew me away.She also lived a very interesting life, and wrote this book with a lot of passion (and occasional melancholy) making it the first scientific page-turner I ever came across.Brilliant book, and highly recommended for people who want an introduction to a more holistic w [...]

    11. Not only was this a friendly read, but I learned a lot about the Scientific community, the politics or the system, and how it works. When people ask me about this book, I find it hard to categorize. It's a little bit memoir, a little bit science and understanding of the human body, and a little bit personal philosophy on healing. Overall, it was both educational and uplifting and recommended to anyone who wants to explore more the connection between physiology and the mind.

    12. Candance Pert was on the research team that discovered how neuropeptides function in the body. Neuropeptides are the receptors that join the brain, glands, and immune system in a network of communication between brain and body. This explains how we really do feel emotion in our gut and heart. Our emotions impact our immune system. It explained to me why essential oils actually do heal. I have quotes from the book on my website, myvibranthealth, under the Health Related Info menu.

    13. There's some very interesting stuff in this book. Theories, science history, yadda yadda. It truly is fascinating stuffBut it's very much mired in the administrative and, ironically, emotional, details of how scientific research gets done. While this might be a fascinating window for some folks, since I work in the sciences, it was a little too much like my daily life to hold any interest for me, and it was certainly not in the scope of what I expected, which was a pop-science book about an inte [...]

    14. The oft-implied "mind-body" connection finds a pinnacle in this volume. Candace Pert started off her career with a bang, being the first scientist to isolate what we now commonly call pain receptors in the human body. This book basically walks you through her experience into her own personal, somewhat pseudo-scientific study of a direct link between human emotions and biological function. This is required reading for a course I'm taking, not something I pick up on preference, but I thoroughly en [...]

    15. I had to read this for one of my classes. It was a fascinating read. If you are interested in why alternative medicine works, you will enjoy this book.In this book, Pert shows how the mind and the body are not separate as they have been thought to be in science for so long. Pert uses her own life story to illustrate her scientific findings and gives recommendations for how her findings can affect the lives of her readers.At the end of her book, Pert gives recommendations for a healthy bodymind: [...]

    16. Pert, of 'What The Bleep Do We Know' fame, discusses her scientific discoveries (including the locating and verification of the opiate receptor) in the context of her life. The life part is interesting but gets in the way sometimes of the science, leaving me with a lot of questions about her ideas that stem from both her experiences and her science. I can't argue with the suggestions for living at the end, but I wanted more depth on the actual molecules and how they interact in the body to influ [...]

    17. research scientist describes the search for biochemical links in the human body, possibly related to "cellular memory" in the peptides of the transplanted cell - a very interesting topic related to the question of traits and/or memories that come across from a donated organ through transplant to the recipient of that organ transplante this and more than a hundred other organ donation/transplant related books - many with my personal reviews - at trioweb/resources/book

    18. Excellent book. Really spoke to my Geek side. It was interesting to read how receptors in our body came to be understood. Then to learn how these receptors do not just live in our brains but throughout our body. Then finally to better understand the link between our body, mind, spirit and our health and emotional state. Well worth reading.

    19. Misleading. It's not about the molecules of emotion, it's a tedious autobiography that trickles out bits of the content that the cover and inside flap lead us to expect. For a book about science, there are way too many exclamation points! I feel like I still need to read a book on this subject.

    20. All too short, this is anyway an interesting glimpse into the thoughts and achievements of a groundbreaking neurobiologist who became interested in the mind-body connection.

    21. Molecules of Emotion is not exactly what it claims to be. Dr. Pert describes the book as a description of her research that discovered the scientific link that proves that emotions are modulated by chemicals within the body, thereby bridging the gap between mind and body. That's only part of what's happening in the book, however.Positively, Pert is an engaging writer. Her stories hook you, and her explanations of scientific details are relatively clear despite their intricacy, though she is, of [...]

    22. Interessante, ma troppo spazio al racconto della vicenda personale rispetto allo spazio di approfondimento della materia. Siamo su un rapporto 80/20.So sicuramente molto più di prima riguardo alla rete psicosomatica, ai peptidi, ai leganti, gli oppiacei Ma mi aspettavo qualcosa di più mirato.-Dibattito James-CannonLa fonte delle emozioni: hanno origine nel corpo e poi vengono percepite nella testa, o dalla testa si trasmettono al corpo?William James: origine "viscerale".Hanno origine nel corpo [...]

    23. Dr. Candace Pert, Ph.D. was a neuroscientist that ascended to the top of her field and ended up at "The Palace", The National Institutes of Health. The first seven chapters outline that trauma, and it was mostly zipper worshipping, ego, patriarchal, misogynist trauma that she was not fully aware of at the start. She ran right into it and learned as she went which maybe made it worthwhile, but it did shorten her life. She died fairly young it turns out; age 71.As an intelligent, empowered woman m [...]

    24. Let it be known that I listened to the abridged version on Hoopla. Let it also be known this was 3 hours of Lady Pert tooting her own horn and discussing her projects in grad school - NOT the freaking science behind emotion. Super annoying - I can't speak to the full book but if this was even a small portion of it, just don't even pick it up.

    25. Although I usually find books written about the mind-body connection and the working of the brain fascinating, I thought this book read too much like a technical paper.

    26. I've been gripped by the entire book, and as an undergrad in the science field, feel much appreciation to gain an insight about everything within the field research wise. The importance of communication, proper, informative and understandable communication, dawned on me and inspires me to communicate to the best of my abilities, and with utmost honesty, the extent of my knowledge where needs are.I have a great appreciation to have borrowed this book, it enriched my passion for science as a whole [...]

    27. I got this as a free audiobook from audible. I am a chemical engineer/chemist by trade and thought this sounded like an interesting read. The book is narrated by the author Candace Pert.The very first thing I noticed is that the author is incredibly conceited, she spends a lot of time bragging about her accomplishments right away. This book is more of an autobiography than an actually book behind the science of emotion.There are some interesting theories in this book, that I think many people wo [...]

    28. The body is the unconscious mind! (141)___________________Every change in the physiological state is accompanied by an appropriate change in the mental emotional state, conscious or unconscious, and conversely, every change in the mental emotional state, conscious or unconscious, is accompanied by an appropriate change in the physiological state. - Elmer Green (137) ___________________There is no objective reality! In order for the brain not to be overwhelmed by the constant deluge of sensory in [...]

    29. I thought I was picking up a book dealing more with quantum physics, but it turned out to be about receptors, peptides, ligands, etc. It was also Dr. Pert's personal journey as a woman in science and merging Eastern medicine with Western medicine. It was actually a very interesting and diverse read, packed with all kinds of topics and themes. While I don't agree with everything she said, she had a great personal tone and approach with the reader. I also felt like she was very honest about her ow [...]

    30. I am of two minds regarding this book. On the one hand, the ideas here about the source, meaning and potential power of emotions in the body completely blew my mind. I find them compelling and plausible, and I wish there were more attention paid to these notions in modern medicine.I also did not object, as some people appear to, to learning better what it's like to be a woman and a renegade in the hyper-competitive world of medical research, or to the author's reflections on relevant personal ev [...]
