Product description


‘The good news, according to Dean Burnett’s fascinating new book, is that on the whole our brains want us to be happy. The bad news is that they often go about it in a rather clumsy way.’ (Daily Mail)

‘Pop psychology at its finest.’ (Stylist)

’The Burnett method is to combine a chatty style with hundreds of academic endnotes, interviews with “experts” (including Charlotte Church on fame and Rhod Gilbert on comedy) and personal anecdotes, and on the whole it is very effective...you should read this funny, stimulating and rewarding book. You’ll be happy you did.’ (Katy Guest Guardian)

Book Description

Neuroscientist Dean Burnett, author of the acclaimed The Idiot Brain, investigates the Science of Happiness. Or whether such a thing even exists.
