Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Dr. Daniel Amen reveals the seven neuroscience secrets to becoming more than 30 percent happier in just 30 days - regardless of your age, upbringing, genetics, or current situation.  

Happiness is a brain function. With a healthier brain always comes a happier life.  

After studying more than 200,000 brain scans of people from 155 countries, Dr. Amen has discovered five primary brain types and seven neuroscience secrets that influence happiness. In You, Happier, he explains them and offers practical science-based strategies for optimizing your happiness.  

Dr. Amen will teach you how to:  

  • Discover your brain type based on your personality and create happiness strategies best suited to you; 
  • Improve your overall brain health to consistently enhance your mood;  
  • Protect your happiness by distancing yourself from the “noise” in your head;  
  • And make seven simple decisions and ask seven daily questions to enhance your happiness.  

Creating consistent happiness is a daily journey. In You, Happier, Dr. Amen walks you through neuroscience-based habits, rituals, and choices that will boost your mood and help you live each day with clearly defined values, purpose, and goals.

No PDF's 🤔?

I love the book and Dr. Amen's extensive research and the way he relays the science into actionable habits. However, there should be some PDF's attached (accessible through the listener's Audible account online, as many other audiobooks do) that SHOW, rather than say. Case in point, the 4 areas of your life where you're supposed to make a list of things that bring you joy. As a listener you don't really realize until he's making his own personal list (by way of example) that you should've written down the 4 categories so that you can create your own list. But there are other areas too where a PDF would've been helpful.

too technical at times.

too much information to be useful while listening. Author should simplify info. into basic easy to remember guidelines.

Authors relentless self promotion ruined it for me

sounds like helpful and good info but when he mentions the "Happy protein Shake" and 4 items are from his BrainMD brand.. then the author keeps promoting his website for test + brain scans ... this book kind of felt like an Ad for Other Daniels products....

You, Happier Yes I Am

Dr. Amen and his seven secrets to happiness are just what I needed. In this book he says I am responsible for my own happiness and I owe it to my loved ones to be happy. I need to live my life with intention and a sense of purpose. If you need an injection of happiness in your life please read this book. It is very easy to listen to and the lessons and exercises throughout the book help you to remember the steps. It is helpful to know your brain type and how you can have the healthiest brain and body possible.

Great info but delivery could use some help

I would say that this book was full of good information and makes you feel motivated and equipped to take control over your own happiness and brain health. There were some issues though, including that the reader was not my fave. He mispronounced several words (e.g. acai, jicama, etc.) which was a bit distracting. Also it was just an enormous amount of information condensed into one books. So at times it felt like health information (diet, supplements, lifestyle interventions) were being overwhelmingly regurgitated at me instead of feeling like there were tangible steps I could take. The seven secrets/questions were helpful though and I wish things had just been slightly better edited.

Who knew!?!?

Dr Amen opens your brain up to concepts & facts that are revolutionary yet have been truths throughout time. I am putting his advice into practice.

A fantastic book

A great book that I found to be developmental and maturative for a young man coming of age like myself. I found this book to be exciting and really relatable. I further highly recommend this book.

Life changing!

This audio book captured my attention. The narrator seemed to take the content personally & made it his own. I learned some very valuable tools to help make me happier. This book is a must for anyone struggling with health concerns. It's very eye opening.
