Summary Science-based actions that can transform the way we think -- and feel. Drawing on the latest research in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, and communications, the author of What Makes Your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite replaces self-help with "science-help," providing practical steps to change your thinking and your life. The human mind operates via a series of "feedback loops" generated in the brain. By identifying how these systems work, this book reveals that we can actually redirect our thinking through metacognition -- a tool for thinking about thinking -- to influence the brain's response. Using relatable examples and tackling major aspects of our lives including relationships, careers, physical health, and personal development, David DiSalvo demonstrates how the brain's enormous capacity to adapt is the most crucial factor influencing how we feel and act -- a powerful tool we can control to change our lives.
