Product Description


"Engaging... very refreshing. His analogies and images when explaining the science are often illuminating and sometimes inspired" (Henry Marsh The Times)

"Intriguing... eye-opening. Frazzetto explains with admirable clarity" (James McConnachie The Sunday Times)

"Takes us on a journey through anger, anxiety, grief, joy, love - and underlines just how far science can now go in its explanations before we have to call in the poets and the philosophers" (Lisa Appignanesi Observer)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Firstly, I am not a scientist. This is a well constructed book about the way the brain works in relation to emotions. It covers grief, loss, anger, anxiety and love etc. All human emotion is discussed. What marks this book out from most is the quality and sensitivity of the author's writing. The style is easy to read, and easy to relate to. The actual neuroscience parts I skimmed a bit. But I got the gist and I shall read this again. Probably more than once. I read it cover to cover at first, I shall go back and dip into the subjects that I am most interested in. To sum up, this is an easy read concerning what could be a difficult subject. It works as a cover to cover read and as a reference on a need to know basis. Highly recommended for the bookshelf.

but I didn't like it very much 10 Sept. 2014
By Sophietheharp - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Read a nice review for this, but I didn't like it very much. The author usually starts out a chapter describing a certain emotion with an example. The examples are quite nicely done, hence the second star, but do we really need explained to us what "sadness" or "anger" are? Then there is usually a bit about which part of the brain "lights up" on the screen if we have the corresponding emotions, followed by lots of qualifiers about how this isn't really all that scientific and how we can't reduce an emotion to certain neurons. I see, but it's not as he doesn't give us one of those diagrams in almost every chapter, so there most be some useful aspect to them, which I would like to have seen him elaborate on. The most interesting points the author makes is that emotions don't disturb our decision making process but enable it. If that was the point, I think he should have made it more clearly and in a more interesting way.
