Richard J. Davidson gives readers a new model for understanding emotions, as well as practical strategies to change them. Personality is composed of six basic emotional 'styles, ' including resilience, self-awareness, and attention. He explains the brain chemistry that underlies each style to give a new model of the emotional brain, one that will go so far as to affect the treatment of autism and depression. And, finally, he provides strategies to change ones brain and emotions if they so desire.

The story of the science so far from a pioneer in this field. The very last chapter shows you what you can do with the evidence (if you want to do anything; you may be thrilled with your style...) - it relies on you giving honest answers to the questions asked in the first chapters; these help to reveal your own emotional style, as well as raise awareness of the styles of others. Most of the experiments recounted here - in the middle section - are fascinating and make for thought-provoking reading.
