    A leading brain scientist's look at the neurobiology of pleasure-and how pleasures can become addictions. Whether eating, taking drugs, engaging in sex, or doing good deeds, the pursuit of pleasure is a central drive of the human animal. In The Compass of Pleasure Johns Hopkins neuroscientist David J. Linden explains how pleasure affects us at the most fundamental level: in our brain.

    Story

    Fascinating info, well organized, high level info delivered in such a way that even a neophyte can grasp whats going on pretty easily with some effort. The author is hilarious and words the most hysterical concepts in such an eloquent and respectable manner that you can't help but to love him. The narrator is so good that I really thought the author must have read it. He must be in tune with the topic, because his delivery especially on the funny parts was perfect. He helped make all the experiment data easy to parse, and had me in stitches while I learned some really neat and high level stuff.
