    Why are some people so quick to recover from a setback while others wallow in despair? Why are some people so highly attuned to others that they seem psychic, while other people put both feet in it over and over again? Why are some people always up and others always down? In this hotly anticipated book, award-winning, pioneering neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson answers these questions by offering an entirely new model of our emotions - their origins, their power, and their malleability.

    If you could sum up The Emotional Life of Your Brain in three words, what would they be?

    interesting, thought provoking


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was flat and his voice really detracted from being able to stick with this fascinating material.


    Any additional comments?

    I've heard Davidson many times and he is a dynamic & interesting speaker. Too bad the narration of this detracts so much from the material. I'm slogging through it...but wow, the difference between this and say "Stumbling on Happiness" (narrated brilliantly by the author) is astounding. Audible..please try to get more authors to read their own books!

    Borderline personality disorder, autism, narcissism, psychosis, Asperger's: All of these syndromes have one thing in common---lack of empathy. In some cases, this absence can be dangerous, but in others it can simply mean a different way of seeing the world. In The Science of Evil, Simon Baron-Cohen, an award-winning British researcher who has investigated psychology and autism for decades, develops a new brain-based theory of human cruelty.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Excellent and engaging. The narrator is particularly excellent.


    What about Jonathan Cowley’s performance did you like?

    He's by far the best narrator of all the audible books I've listened to.
