Emotional Ignorance, Paperback / softback Book

Emotional Ignorance Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Why can't we think straight when hungry? What's the point of nightmares? And why can't we forget embarrassing memories?Emotions can be a pain.

After losing his dad to Covid-19, Dean Burnett found himself wondering what life would be like without them. And so, he decided to put his feelings under the microscope - for science. In Emotional Ignorance, Dean takes us on an incredible journey of discovery, stretching from the origins of life to the end of the universe.

Along the way he reveals:- why we would ever follow our gut;- whether things really were better in the old days;- why it's so hard to stop doomscrolling;- and how sad music can make us happier. Combining expert analysis, brilliant humour and powerful insights into the grieving process, Dean uncovers how, far from holding us back, our emotions make us who we are.
