    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.

    Would you try another book from David J. Linden and/or Sean Pratt?

    The book gives a technical description of the habits we see in ourselves and others. The interesting part showed how genetics and other drugs affect compulsive behavior. I felt that the book could have included more annedotes so there would be more of a story line.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David J. Linden again?

    Not likely


    What three words best describe Sean Pratt’s voice?

    inoffensively modulated monotone


    Was The Compass of Pleasure worth the listening time?

    yes

    In a radical break with the past, information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into its stream. Individuals and companies can no longer rely on the stocks of knowledge that theyve carefully built up and stored away. Information now flows like water, and we must learn how to tap into the stream.

    David G. Killary says: "Pulled away from anything better to do."
    "Pablum"

    Did you know that if you engage in "deep listening" regularly you could become a node? This is the last time I open a recomendation email from Audible.
