AUTHORS NOTES =

[1] Jeffrey M. Schwartz M.D. is an internationally-recognized authority on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and is the author of the bestseller Brain Lock in 1997, and the co-author of the book, A Return to Innocence in 1998, and the co-author of the book, You Are Not Your Brain --- the 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life in 2012. He is a Research Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine.

[2] Award-winning writer Sharon Begley is the science columnist for the Wall Street Journal; before that she was senior science writer for Newsweek. Also she is the author of two popular brain books: Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain: How a New Science Reveals Our Extraordinary Potential to Transform Ourselves in 2007 and The Emotional Life of Your Brain: How Its Unique Patterns Affect the Way You Think, Feel, and Live--and How You Can Change Them in 2012.

FIRST FACT = The book outlined below contains the most comprehensive explanation of how your brain is the source of your mind's mental forces (brainpower), which includes your willpower and ability to imagine, reason and remember important facts and ideas about yourself and your environment in the context of reality.

SECOND FACT = These abilities are the result of the interaction of your self-organized working memory system and your well-tuned long-term memory system. Together, they make possible the existence and growth of your conscious willpower and your adaptable self-identity.

These FACTS were discovered by the interdisciplinary collaboration of brain scientists who unified the perspectives of evolutionary biology, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience at UCLA. The book describes your ability to learn virtually anything given the proper educational experiences and cultural incentives. In addition,it describes how the incredible research that proved the distinction between the brain's neuroplastic physical structure and the mind's emergent mental functions, now properly called your "mental force."

These amazing new discoveries about the brain were made during the Decade of the Brain (1990s) and first reported early in the beginning of 21st century.
