What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite

David Di Salvo

Why do we do things in the moment that we regret later? Why are we unable to plan for our futures in favor of doing things that only make us happy for a few moments? And why do we think we’re right in the face of overwhelming evidence we’re wrong? David Di Salvo explores this topic in his new book to shed light on the brain’s paradoxical nature. He incorporates interviews with neuroscientists and anecdotes from a variety of fields to illustrate his points. While the book is scientifically based, it still manages to be an engaging and entertaining read!
