Bruce H.Lipton is a cell biologist and has taught cell biology at the University of Wisconsin's School of Medicine and later performed pioneering studies at Standford University. He has been on several shows as a guest speaker and has spoken at national and international conferences.
The book contains recent scientific findings that show how thoughts affect each and every cell in our bodies. It is claimed that chromosomes not only regulate our body's genetics but that environmental factors such as positive and negative feelings also do. The book remarkably connects elements of physics and chemistry to biology, allowing the reader to comprehend the significant impact that mind and matter have on our lives and our species as a whole. Our biology is influenced by the world we live in, the food we eat, and other external factors.
He demonstrates how the emerging science of epigenetics is revolutionizing our knowledge of the relationship between mind and matter, and the significant consequences it has on a person's life and the collective life of her species, using simple language, graphics, comedy, and daily situations.
The placebo effect, which is the belief effect that affects our behavior and our bodies whether it is correct or not, is also covered in the book. The author describes the placebo effect using the medical sector as an example. The nocebos effect, or the force of negative ideas, explains how bad attitudes affect our health and minds. The book also explains how the environment in which we live shapes and influences us.

2. Working of membranes, proteins, and genes.
3. The magic of cells-Déjà vu
4. Power of the subconscious mind
