Joseph LeDoux is a superb guide to that ultimate frontier in understanding our emotional life, the brain.
-- Daniel Goldman, author of Emotional Intelligence
The Emotional Brain is an excellent introduction to the strange history of the neurobiology of emotion and a preview of what lies ahead.
-- Antonio R. Damasio, Scientific American
Engrossing and engaging...
-- Richard Restak, The New York Times Book Review
Highly accessible...LeDoux's musical and literary references reveal a man clearly in touch with his own emotional feelings. All said, The Emotional Brain is a stimulating and thoughtful work and is essential reading for any serious student of human emotion.
-- Raymond J. Dolan, Nature
[The Emotional Brain] is vivid and convincing in its description of the central mechanisms of emotion, and is directly applicable to understanding anxiety, the most common ingredient of emotional disorders. It's a terrifically good book.
-- Keith Oatley, New Scientist
