    In Your Brain at Work, David Rock takes listeners inside the heads - literally - of a modern two-career couple as they mentally process their workday to reveal how we can better organize, prioritize, remember, and process our daily lives. Rock, the author of Quiet Leadership and Personal Best, shows how it’s possible for this couple, and thus the listener, not only to survive in today’s overwhelming work environment but succeed in it.
