The Happy Brain: The Science of Where Happiness Comes from, and Why
Author(s): Dean Burnett
Do you want to be happy?
If so - read on. This book has all the answers.*
In The Happy Brain, neuroscientist Dean Burnett delves deep into the inner workings of our minds to explore some fundamental questions about happiness. For starters: what does it actually mean to be happy? Where does it come from? And is there a secret to making it last forever?
In his research into these questions - and many more besides - Burnett unravels our complex internal lives to reveal the often surprising truth behind what makes us tick. From whether happiness really begins at home (spoiler alert: yes - sort of) to what love, sex, friendship, wealth, laughter and success actually do to our brains, this book offers a uniquely entertaining insight into what it means to be human.
* Not really. Sorry. But it does have some very interesting questions, and at least the occasional answer.
