Présentation de l'éditeur

You can enjoy more happy chemicals if you know what turns them on. In the state of nature, happy chemicals turn on to meet survival needs. Whatever met your needs in youth triggered happy chemicals and paved your neural pathways. You are wired to seek more of whatever felt good before. You can re-wire yourself by repeating a new behavior for 45 days. This book helps you choose healthy ways to stimulate dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphin. Dopamine is the good feeling you get when you approach a reward. Serotonin is the good feeling of getting respect. Oxytocin is the feeling of trust, and endorphin is the euphoria that masks physical pain. These happy chemicals were not meant to surge all the time. They fall back to neutral so you’re ready to respond to new information. You can accept your natural droops instead of rushing to fix them. You have power when you know how your brain works, and it feels good.

A Wonderful Way to Learn 9 avril 2012
Par Happy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm very happy I purchased this book, the author writes with insight, intelligence, and it's very accessible and easy to read.

It's helped me better understand myself and the neurochemical basis of my thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Especially helpful were the suggestions given for focusing on past achievements, celebrating small accomplishments, and making an effort to appreciate what we have.

It's one of the best books I've read on neurochemicals and
I highly recommend it.

Did anyone actually read this? 10 juillet 2012
Par Debra Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I read this book over a period of a few days, and while the subject matter was interesting, I had several complaints.

Pros-

-It was interesting to learn how the mammal brain functions.

Cons-

-Every single page in the book had a punctuation, spelling, or grammatical error. Some sentences were missing key words and others had the same word randomly inserted in multiple places for no reason. These constant errors made the book difficult to read. Its pretty obvious she never hired an editor for this work.

-The tone used in the book made me feel as though I was a not very bright 5 year old. Her language is uninspired and repetitive. You can only use the words good, bad, happy, and unhappy so many times before they completely lose meaning.

-Her author bio at the end of the book was oddly free of errors. It seems like she put ll her energy and thought into writing those ten pages rather then the body of the book.

So, three stars because while it was interesting, the tone and lack of an editor really ruined the experience for me. If I hadn't paid full price for this book, I would not have finished it.

Thanks Loretta! 8 juin 2012

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the first review I have ever posted; I tend not to share my feelings publicly. I have spent more than half a century trying to understand why I do the things that are contrary to my own well being; this book has filled in the missing pieces. This doesn't mean my journey will be easier but it does give explanations to why I do them and I am sure that armed with this knowledge will only help break free of persistent confusion. I highly recommend this book to anyone and will be buying more to give as gifts to those whom I care about.

Very informative and helpful 1 mars 2014
Par Steve Scanlon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having a clearer understanding or how we do what we do as a result of reading this book has been priceless. The author does an incredible job of simplifying the facts and then laying them out in a way that is understandable for those of us who don't practice anything that resembles neuroscience. Brava, Loretta. I think it may have been Einstein who quipped something like "any fool can complicate a matter, it takes genius to make something simple." Very, very helpful. I recommend this book to anyone that is serious about wanting to change something in their life

Great book! 9 mars 2012
Par jm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Loretta Breuning's insights into human behavior are among the clearest, most direct, and useful I have read, and I am an avid reader of neuroscience and its applications. Having read over 7000 pages of popular literature on the subject, I found her explanations of how the human brain works and how it affects our resulting behavior and emotions in everyday life provoked constant personal insights and "ah-ha" moments as I read. My wife found the same experience.
I highly recommend her work, and in particular, the latest, "Meet Your Happy Chemicals...." Clear, useful, thought-provoking.
