Product Description

Imported from USA


"Rick Hanson is a master of his craft, showing us a wise path for daily living in this book. Based in the
latest findings of neuroscience, this book reveals that if we understand the brain a little, we can take care of our
lives a lot, and make a real difference to our well-being. Here is a book to savor, to practice, and to take to
heart." -Mark Williams, Ph.D., Professor, University of Oxford, author of Mindfulness

"The cultivation of happiness is one of the most important skills anyone can ever learn. Luckily, it’s not hard when we
know the way to water and nourish these wholesome seeds, which are already there in our consciousness. This book offers
simple, accessible, practical steps for touching the peace and joy that are every person’s birthright." -Thich Nhat
Hanh, author of Being Peace and Understanding Our Mind

"In this remarkable book, one of the world's leading authorities on mind training shows how to cultivate the helpful and
good within us. In a beautifully written and accessible way, Rick Hanson offers us an inspiring gift of wise insights
and compassionate and uplifting practices that will be of enormous benefit to all who read this book. A book of hope and
joyfulness." -Paul Gilbert, Ph.D., O.B.E., Professor, University of Derby, author of The Compassionate Mind

"Rick Hanson's new book works practical magic: it teaches you how, in a few seconds, to rewire your brain for greater
happiness, peace, and well-being. This is truly a book I wish every human being could read - it's that important. I hope
we'll soon be saying to each other, in meetings, over coffee, in crowded subway cars: “Take in the good?” -Jennifer
Louden, author of The Woman's Comfort Book

"Learning to take in the good is like fully and mindfully breathing in life: it allows us to access our inner strengths,
creativity, vitality and love. In his brilliant new book, Rick Hanson gives us the fascinating science behind attending
to positive experiences, and offers powerful and doable ways to awaken the deep and lasting wellbeing we yearn
for." -Tara Brach, Ph.D., author of Radical Acceptance

"Hardwiring Happiness teaches us the life-affirming skills of inverting our evolutionary bias to hold on to the
negative in our lives and instead soak in and savor the positive. What better gift can we give our selves or our loved
ones than an effective strategy to increase joy through brain-based steps that are both accessible and
pleasurable? Bravo" -Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., Clinical Professor, UCLA School of Medicine, author of Mindsight, The
Mindful Brain, and Brainstorm

"Rick Hanson is brilliant at making complex scientific information about the brain simple. For anyone wanting to decode
the black box of the brain and take advantage of its potential, this is the book to read." -Harville Hendrix, Ph.D.,
co-author of Making Marriage Simple
