What a treat. A charming, engaging and accessible book written by a scientist who knows how to tell a story

An intelligent written look into why most people take an optimistic view on life...stimulating discussion...in easily understood language...fascinating trip into why we prefer to remain hopeful about our future and ourselves.
Engaging....Sharot studies optimisim as the neural level and knows her subject well.
Her fascinating book offers compelling evidence for the neural basis of optimism and what it all means.
If you read her story, you'll get a much better grip on how we function in it. I'm optimistic about that.
Lively, conversational...A well-told, heartening report from neuroscience's front lines.
