Product description


"Joseph LeDoux is a superb guide to that ultimate frontier in understanding our emotional life, the brain."
-- Daniel Goldman, author of Emotional Intelligence

"The Emotional Brain is an excellent introduction to the strange history of the neurobiology of emotion and a preview of what lies ahead."
-- Antonio R. Damasio, Scientific American

"Engrossing and engaging..."
-- Richard Restak, The New York Times Book Review

"Highly accessible...LeDoux's musical and literary references reveal a man clearly in touch with his own emotional feelings. All said, The Emotional Brain is a stimulating and thoughtful work and is essential reading for any serious student of human emotion."
-- Raymond J. Dolan, Nature

"[The Emotional Brain] is vivid and convincing in its description of the central mechanisms of emotion, and is directly applicable to understanding anxiety, the most common ingredient of emotional disorders. It's a terrifically good book."
-- Keith Oatley, New Scientist
