Everyone wants to be more effective at work and to get maximum impact from minimum effort. Make Your Brain Work shows you how to do this, using the latest insights from neuroscience about how our mind works and what really makes us tick.

Leave stress, negative moods and poor time management behind - Make Your Brain Work is your passport to a new improved you! Amy Brann studied medicine at University College London during which time she became passionate about training people in leadership and communication skills. Realising that a lot of the material available was very surface level in its approach, she left medicine to find a discipline that gave added depth: neuroscience.

Through her business, Synaptic Potential, Amy works with many companies to help them better understand their teams, clients and organisations as a whole. Amy is the creator of the successful online community, 'Neuroscience in Business'.

What the Critics Say

“Make Your Brain Work is the first book to take cutting-edge neuroscience and apply it to improving one's ability to be successful, and to feel successful, at work. Using a lively set of characters that illustrate not just what to do to improve the brain at work, but how to do it” (Paul J. Zak, PhD, Author of The Moral Molecule, and Founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University)

“Make Your Brain Work is an engaging book that is simultaneously filled with insight and application. Amy Brann not only provides us with greater understanding on how the brain works but she also gives us useful tools on how to make the brain work for each of us” (Stephen M. R. Covey, author of The New York Times bestselling book, The Speed of Trust, and co-author of Smart Trust)

    "Boring"

    I thought this would be a very interesting book. I am now halfway with the book, but if you should ask me what I've learnt thus far (or even heard thus far), I have no idea. It could be because of the narrator which is COMPLETELY wrong for the book and the subject matter.

    Merilyn Harris would be great for a mystery novel a la Ruth Rendell or something like Murder She Wrote, but NOT for this. She reads it like it's a mystery and I just can't take her seriously. I have a good mind and go onto my next book - and I don't think I'd even wonder what the rest of the book is about.

    Story
    "narrator bunged up"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the narrator - she reads well I think, however it's so offputting listening to her trying to pronounce words through what I can only assume is a bad cold


    Would you be willing to try another book from Amy Brann? Why or why not?

    Possibly, however, like another reviewer commented I'm not really sure what I learnt from this book - perhaps I could have a look on the website to try and enrich the experience


    What didn’t you like about Merilyn Harris’s performance?

    The fact that she was reading whilst dealing with a stuffy nose
