Use Your Head: The Inside Track on the Way We Think
Ever wondered what goes on up there? Why do we think, feel and act in the way we do? What makes us happy or sad, angry or anxious? The Freeman brothers unravel the secrets of the mind and explain the scientific facts behind our behaviour. Armed with key psychological insights you'll be able to apply them to everyday situations and understand why we are attracted to certain people or remember faces rather than names. Having trouble sleeping? Suffering from panic attacks? Use Your Head will pin-point your symptoms and give you practical advice on how to overcome these difficulties. Clear, concise and immediately relevant, this is essential reading.
