5.0 out of 5 stars Build a Second Brain -> Open One Heart
By Bronson Chang on September 1, 2022
I've read 100s of books, but this is my very first Amazon review for a good reason. The ideas in this book have been life changing--even life saving. As an entrepreneur, husband, and new dad, I can’t recommend this book "Building a Second Brain" highly enough. Thank you to my Second Brain—Nosnorb Kroy—for supporting me in expressing what you are reading and the video I made!

I was really excited to read this long-anticipated book, and it did not disappoint. In fact, it was during my son's first seven weeks of life--between hundreds of soothing sessions and household chores--that I actually read/listened to this book. Afterwards, I was so inspired that I created a new website called “Two Brains One Heart”.

After 15 years of trying dozens of approaches to work/creativity/productivity, “Building a Second Brain” is DIFFERENT and WORKS. How so? BASB is about building a powerful external system AND simultaneously developing lifelong internal habits. Furthermore, that system and those habits are designed based in new perspectives that are aligned with living and working in the Information Age and leverage the unprecedented technologies at everyone’s fingertips at this time.

You will see that you are totally in the driver’s seat of changing your system (Second Brain), then as you change your system, it will start changing you (First Brain). There is a symbiotic relationship between your two brains, and herein lives a key driver to the great transformational power of building a Second Brain.


If you are drowning in the tumultuous ocean of today's Information Age, or if you dream of actualizing more in your life, I believe this book is the right direction. But like Tiago did, as I have, only you can travel your own journey. It can start with this book, reading one page, capturing one idea, and implementing one action at a time.

Why keep doggy-paddling for dear life until ultimate exhaustion? Grab this book, open it up, digest it, and TAKE ACTION. You will learn how to build your watercraft to survive and eventually thrive.

BASB was born out of Tiago's personal suffering from a terrible medical diagnosis, but once he conceived his Second Brain, he nurtured and built it over time. A decade later he is heroically on his way to helping millions of others.

Tiago has transparently shared about how he poured his blood, sweat, and tears into birthing this book. In the end, he persevered to realize this gigantic undertaking of writing a mainstream published book, out of his deep desire to distill the best of what he knows so that as many people around the world could realize their fullest potential with a Second Brain as well. Like a child that takes a village to raise, Tiago graciously credits the community of support that has made his journey and this book possible. With this all said, I deeply THANK Tiago and everyone who had a hand in his life and in this book.

If this is resonating, please don't let the moment pass. Do what feels right. Just go. One small step, or one giant leap at a time.

Bronson York Chang / Nosnorb Kroy
