Joy.ology: The Chemistry of Happiness

December 10, 2017

 

We wake up every morning hoping to be happy and, by conventional wisdom, we should be! If we work hard, we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, we will be happy. If we can just find that great job, get that next promotion, or lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But happiness is far more than a positive feeling that comes and goes. Neuroscience has now proven that keeping happy is a skill you can develop!

In JOY.OLOGY, Professor Turker Bas delves into this, revealing fascinating new insights into the science of happiness and taking us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and the four chemicals that drive the way we feel. JOY.OLOGY presents an unprecedented view of the intersection of neurology, psychology, and contemplative practice, and is filled with practical tools and skills that you can use every day to tap into the unused potential of your brain and rewire it for greater happiness.

Each chapter will help you understand the role of one the “happy chemicals” in your brain—serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphin—focusing on exactly what that chemical is and how it can boost your happiness.

Read this practical, easy-to-understand, and often entertaining book, and you’ll know exactly how to trigger your happy chemicals, nourish your mind, balance your brain, and help others do the same.

 

REVIEW

A Groundbreaking Tour of the Mind! 

By Piaras on December 9, 2017

I really enjoyed reading this book. Joy.ology: The Chemistry of Happiness is a very well written Life-Improvement book. This book is intelligent, wise and packed to the rafters with practical common sense advice. It becomes obvious as you read through this page turner that the author is imparting his wisdom and understanding as to what happiness and success really means. It’s an excellent guide for putting things into perspective and may well be a potential life changer for all those who read it. No matter what your situation is today, this book will put you on the right path to better things. I’ve been around the block a few times myself and even I found this read to be very perceptive and informative.

Profound thoughts are explained here in the simplest manner. That’s all one can say about this book. It’s difficult to write a more objective review, because the impact the author will have on you will make you see life and its problems in a wise and practical way. The book should NOT be read – it should be absorbed and reflected upon.

This wonderful new book will show you how to properly tune into life and the simple rules you must follow to achieve this. This by far is one of the best Life-Improvement books I’ve read in a very long time. The author must be commended for his time and effort for producing such an insightful book. Also, the writing style is friendly which makes for an enjoyable read.

I would highly recommend this book. Five stars from me.
