Practical tools and tips to lead a healthy and productive life
The brain is the basis of everything we do: how we behave, communicate, feel, remember, pay attention, create, influence and decide.
Why We Do What We Do combines scientific research with concrete examples and illustrative stories to clarify the complex mechanisms of the human brain. It offers valuable insights into how our brain works every day, at home and at work, and provides practical ideas and tips to help us lead happy, healthy and productive lives.
