Publisher's Description

This Is Your Brain on Joy is a thoughtful, practical, life-changing book that will help you take advantage of the latest neuroscience research—combined with biblical insights—to bring more joy and love into your life.”
—from the Foreword by Daniel G. Amen, MD
Author and speaker for the PBS special Change Your Brain, Change Your Life

What does your brain have to do with experiencing joy?

A lot more than most of us realize.

In this breakthrough book, Dr. Earl Henslin reveals how the study of brain imaging turned his practice of psychotherapy upside down—with remarkably  positive results.

He shares answers to puzzling questions, such as
  • Why isn’t my faith in God enough to erase my blue moods?
  • Why haven’t I been able to conquer my anger? Pray away my fear and worry?
  • Why can’t I find freedom from secret obsessions and addictions?
Using the Brain System Checklist, Dr. Henslin explains what happens to the 5 Mood Centers in the brain when any of those areas are out of balance. This is great news, especially for those tortured by the fear that something is fundamentally wrong with them when the problem actually lies between their ears.

Read this practical, easy-to-understand, and often entertaining book, and you’ll know exactly how to nourish your mind, balance your brain, and help  others do the same. After all, the capacity for joy is a terrible thing to waste.

    A little too technical, but interesting.

    I honestly had difficulty getting through this book. I'm not sure why. I don't think it was the subject matter as much as it was a little too technical for me because I have limited reading time. For someone else it would probably be a breeze to read. It was fascinating to read about how the brain works. I'm a little familiar with Dr. Amen's work from seeing him on TV. But I didn't leave this book feeling like my brain was on joy. I give it 3 stars, with the caveat that if you have the time to devote to a book that's a little more technical than most self-help books (at least the ones I've read) you might enjoy it and find it useful.
