Description:

Author David DiSalvo presents evidence from evolutionary and social psychology, cognitive science, neurology, and even marketing and economics to prove that 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 make getting out of our own way extremely difficult. He interviews many of the top thinkers in psychology and neuroscience today. From this research-based platform, DiSalvo 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.

Quotes:

DiSalvo offers 'science-help' (as opposed to self-help) by detailing the mental shortcuts our minds like to take but that don't always serve us well, with the assumption that understanding brain function helps us fight its stubborn behavior., Psychology Today

This book is the Swiss Army knife of psychology and neuroscience research-handy, practical, and very, very useful. It boils down the latest findings into simple, easy-to-understand lessons you can apply to your daily life., Joseph T. Hallinan, , Pulitzer PrizeÆwinning Author of Why We Make Mistakes
