DescriptionThe Wall Street Journal Bestseller that helps us feel better every day with neuroscience and humor.Our brains are doing our best to help us out, but they can be real assholes sometimes. Sometimes it seems like your own brain is out to get you--melting down in the middle of the grocery store, picking fights with your date, getting you addicted to something, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. You already told your brain firmly that it isn't good to do these things. But your brain has a mind of its own. That's where this book comes in. With humor, patience, and lots of swearing, Dr. Faith shows you the science behind what's going on in your skull and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life. If you're working to deal with old traumas, depression, anxiety, anger, grief, or addiction, or if you just want to have a more measured and chill response to situations you face all the time, this book can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together and get your life and brain back.

"As a passionate professor, counselor, and follower of neuroscience research, I strongly recommend Unfuck Your Brain: Using Science to Get Over Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Freak-outs, and Triggers. Dr. Harper's writing style definitely held my attention and made me laugh many times while still informing me about some complicated neuroscience and health related topics. This book is a wonderful change from all the dry, dull, writing I usually read on a daily basis. I encourage everyone dealing with any of these issues or who is interested in becoming updated in the recent neuroscience research to purchase a copy and start reading it today." --Allen Novian, PhD, LMFT, LPC-S, Adjunct Professor at St. Mary's University
