'science writer David Di'salvo distills the latest research on how
our brains work into easy-to-understand lessons that will give average
readers insights into their habitual behavior. b>
reveals a remarkable paradox :what your brain wants is frequently not
what your brain needs. In fact, much of what makes our brains happy
leads to errors, biases, and distortions, which cloud our judgment and
muddle our decision making.
'science writer David Di'salvo presents evidence from evolutionary
and social psychology, cognitive science, neurology, and even
marketing and economics. And he interviews many of the top thinkers in
psychology and neuroscience today.
From this research-based platform, Di'salvo draws out insights
that we can use to identify our brains' foibles and turn our awareness
into edifying action. Ultimately, he argues, the research does not
serve up ready-made answers, but provides us with actionable clues for
overcoming the plight of our advanced brains and, consequently, living
more fulfilled lives.
Newly revised to include the latest research on the workings of
the brain, What Makes Your Brain Happy i> is an essential tool
for understanding yourself.
