Synopsis

'Funny, wise and absolutely fascinating.' Adam Kay, author of This Is Going to Hurt



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. What does it actually mean to be happy? Where does it come from? And what, really, is the point of it? Forget searching for the secret of happiness through lifestyle fads or cod philosophy - Burnett reveals the often surprising truth behind what make 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.
