Trade Negative Thinking for Confident, Fearless Living
Most of us don’t realize that we have a surprising amount of control over our own thoughts and behaviors. We can unintentionally influence our brains negatively, causing cycles of bad choices and experiences.
The ReWired Brain offers a clear framework for understanding our brains and the decisions we make, showing how certain fears and instincts drive unhealthy emotional dysfunctions and related behavioral patterns in the most important areas of life. This book shows how to reframe negative experiences, experience emotional and spiritual healing, and ultimately rewire our brains, empowering to live fearlessly.

What Others Are Saying About The ReWired Brain
“The creative and brilliantly wired mind of scientist and author Dr. Ski Chilton again boldly explores human behavior potential in his insightful latest book, The ReWired Brain–a provocative mental journey.”–Charles (Cash) McCall, MD, professor of translational science and molecular medicine, Wake Forest University School of Medicine
“Change–honest, God-honoring change–is difficult! It seems at times the Christian community oscillates between two extremes: religious denial or the insanity of just trying harder to be better. The ReWired Brain instead gives hope and practical insights into how we can get ‘unstuck’ in life. Having spent over thirty years counseling, I would strongly recommend this creative contribution to the battle for wholeness and holiness.”–Dr. Ted Roberts, bestselling author, pastor, and certified sexual addiction counselor
“As a writer and lover of fiction, when my son asked me the other night “why people do things that aren’t good for them,” my reflex was to walk over to my book self and dust off Hemingway, Oscar Wilde or C.S. Lewis. I reached for Ski Chilton’s The Rewired Brain, instead. It not only supplied answers relevant to my son’s question, but it helped explain the fear and anger present in our current global politics. Chilton uses science, honesty and humor to explain why humans often act contrary to our best interests. He identifies how we can voluntarily rewire our brains to keep our baser instincts in check and create better blueprints for ourselves. And he does this from the perspective of someone who has experimented on himself. Base instincts and higher cognitive brain functions don’t always make for good marriages. Nor do science and storytelling, but Chilton has found the balance. He has a penchant for explaining complex concepts with a North Carolina, tobacco road storytelling instinct that brings his narrative home — never so much as in this passage where he explains how a Native American elder deals with battles within his own brain. ‘Inside me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights and good dog all the time.’ When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, ‘the one I feed the most.’ Feed the right dog. Buy Chilton’s book.”–Angus Morrison, author of Wavelength
