If you've ever wanted an owner's manual for your brain, this book is for you. Barrett busts common myths about "universal" emotions that everyone experiences, and she bases her arguments in excellent critiques of classic studies, as well as her own research. For skeptics of freudian & pop psychology, her theory of human emotion is a (mindbending) breath of fresh air! This book gave me a way to love my biology and changed my life in a way that many self-help books promise but few deliver.
