Hi all,

My friend is writing a book. There es an qutation from Dr. Caroline Leaf that the conscious mind can process up to 20 thousand bits per second. Our subconscious mind processes 400 billion (400,000,000,000!) bits per second. It is quoted here https://www.oliverbriny.com/growth/the-circle-of-influence/ out of her book 

1. Leaf, Caroline. Who switched off my brain? Controlling toxic thoughts and emotions. Dallas, TX: Switch On Your Brain, 2008.

 Does anybody has this book and could sent me a picture and the page number of the quotation? :-)

Than you so much!

1. This isn’t a FL resource and I doubt you will find someone with it here. 
2. Your friend should not be citing a source of a source. If s(he) didn’t get the quote from the book s(he) shouldn’t cite it as if s(he) did. 
3. The book appears to be from a vanity press house, so it’s usefulness might be limited.
