Brain Wash

by David Perlmutter MD


In the modern world, we've got it pretty good. We can order food to arrive in minutes and packages that come the next day. We have an endless supply of movies, books, and music that we can access instantly.

So why are so many of us still miserable? It may seem like life is the best it can be right now but the reality is, inside we're all suffering. How did we get here and what is the cure?

The unfortunate truth is that cultural norms are hijacking our brains and stealing our happiness, health, and connection. Without knowing it, you've created habits around these social patterns, which lead you to make choices that keep you from a good life.

In Brain Wash: Detox Your Mind for Clearer Thinking, Deeper Relationships and Lasting Happiness, father and son David Perlmutter M.D. and Austin Perlmutter M.D. help us to solve these problems and start a journey to a happier life.
