Award-winning UCLA professor and author Dario Nardi brings to life a feast of useful insights drawn from his brain research lab. He will lead you on a journey of self-discovery, chapter by chapter, that is grounded in first-hand scientific knowledge of the brain. This is a practical guide. Learn how to target "in flow" and "low-threshold" activities that engage people creatively and improve their work-flow and learning. Identify people's struggles and stress areas, including "high-threshold" activities for which a person may avoid or do poorly. You will also enjoy a bird's eye view that summarizes many key aspects of the brain all in one place, in everyday language with case studies, work spaces, and visual maps. New to personality type?

Fans of Carl Jung's work and the Myers-Briggs personality types will be pleased to learn there is strong neurological validity in the brain for eight distinct cognitive processes and sixteen types.
