Your Brain at Work

David Rock

Overview

Dr. David Rock is an expert when it comes to the state of high performance. He's trained over 10,000 people thanks to his background in neuroscience and leadership and showed them how to get the most out of their brain.

Your Brain At Work is his most popular book, which dives into the brains of Emily and Paul, two fictional characters. As they go through their day they face a lot of challenges, like information overload, lack of focus, emotions boiling over and trying to give feedback to others without criticizing them.

The book breaks apart what happens in the human brain in situations like these and helps you deal with those very same challenges in a better way in your own life.

Neither Emily nor Paul have made it into Blinkist's summary of the book, but there's still a lot to learn from it. Ready to kick your brain into the next gear? Time to learn!
