Robert Sapolsky is one of the funniest, most creative, and original neuroscientist communicators around. This book is about stress and its underlying biology, drawing partly from research he’s performed on a troop of baboons.

#10 Following Through: A Revolutionary New Model for Finishing Whatever You Start by Steve Levinson

Following Through: A Revolutionary New Model for Finishing Whatever You Start by Steve Levinson Get this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

Following Through shines a bright light into the hole in inner space where all our good intentions disappear. It explains why the failure to do the things we’ve intelligently decided we should do is not exactly our fault.

It’s caused primarily by a design flaw in the normal human mind that causes us to waste much of the intelligent guidance our minds so ably produce. We may think that our intelligence is hard-wired to our behavior, but it isn’t. And understanding and accepting the truth paves the way for us to start using bold new strategies to transform our good intentions into life-improving action.

#11 The Neuroscience of Human Relationships by Louis Cozolino

The Neuroscience of Human Relationships by Louis CozolinoGet this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

This is a great read for those interested in the mental health field, politics, economics, sociology, and anyone looking to objectively understand how the mind works, on a macro and micro level, to shape our realities. The basic concept explored is that neurons do not exist alone and neither does a single human brain.

We are all connected. Cozolino states, Without mutually stimulating interactions, people and neurons wither and die. The author explores human relationships from a cellular level to the complex dynamics of tribes and culture. Every human being and everything that surrounds us are intertwined in a dance of adaptation.

When the world changes we adapt, and in turn change the world in both positive and negative ways. Essentially, our minds our primitive, but there is hope, and love, and this book offers a vast amount of well synthesized and accessible empirical data to help us on the journey.

The Psychobiotic Revolution by Scott AndersonGet this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

I’m the author of this book, so I might be biased, but my coauthors are genuine scientific heroes who have turned the world of psychiatry on its head. Cryan is a neurologist and Dinan is a psychiatrist, and psychobiotics are probiotics or prebiotics that improve your mood. The book shows that your gut bacteria are at the root of many mental issues, from depression and anxiety to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It also shows you how to deal with your mood by taking care of your microbiota.
