R175.00 incl. VAT
We all know people who remain happy whether they enjoy enormous success or face painful disasters. The reason: they possess, in their brains, a core of stability and optimism. A happy human brain offers a practical, comprehensive guide on what these people do on a daily basis to strengthen their brains. As the first book for the layperson that combines groundbreaking research in the major fields of science aimed at understanding the human condition, it will shatter many of your convictions on what makes us human, happy and authentically successful. Specifically, the book addresses three main questions:
What steps can we take to be more happy today?
Why does an obsession with material success rob us of our happiness and humanity?
How do parenting in early childhood and our culture influence our happiness and humanity?
“Pierre van der Spuy touches on a very important topic that is vital to all of us who live in a success-driven world. Through his courage in addressing his own issues in life, Van der Spuy touches on an existential concept that forces us all to look at our own behaviour, humanity, and what constitutes happiness in life. This book is beautifully written with clarity and clinical perspicacity – A must read.” Frank M. Dattilio (Ph.D., ABPP), Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School.
