The Emotional Life of Your Brain Summary

Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book ¡°The Emotional Life of Your Brain.¡± You¡¯ve probably experienced flight delays. If you paid attention to the passengers around you, you would see that they¡¯d react differently to flight delays. Some would be listening to music with headphones on, completely ignoring the situation around them. Some would be grumbling, walking into the departure lounge in a huff after hearing the news of delay. Some would calmly but firmly demand to be rerouted immediately. And some would angrily and loudly question the staff. The differences in how people react to a flight delay have much to do with their Emotional Style. Richard J. Davidson, a psychologist and neuroscientist, proposed Emotional Style model in this book, the first theory of human emotions based on modern neuroscience. Through rigorous experiments and data analysis, Davidson puts forward that Emotional Style comprises six dimensions, and each of them is the result of a particular pattern of brain activity. The six dimensions introduced in the book give us a clear picture of our Emotional Style, which plays a major role in every aspect of our lives, including our physical health. The good news is, Emotional Style is malleable, which means that we can shape it to work to our advantage. This book was authored by Richard J. Davidson and Sharon Begley. Richard J. Davidson, a renowned psychologist and neuroscientist, received his Ph.D. in Psychology from Harvard University, and is a professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin¨CMadison. Sharon Begley is a popular science writer who writes full time for the science columns of The Wall Street Journal and Newsweek throughout the year. In this Bookey, we will unlock the essence of the book through the following three parts. Part one: About Emotional Style Part two: How Emotional Style affects our life and health Part three: How to reshape your Emotional Style

I like it. It lacks only a dictionary. Otherwise it works perfectly. I like the fact that I can control the brightness with only one swipe and also the quotes' Highlights.
