Imagine a medical treatment that can decrease heart disease, boost immune function, relieve depression, and block pain—whose only side effect is that it makes you feel good. It's safe, inexpensive, and readily available, No, it's not a miracle drug; rather, these benefits come from the experience of pleasure itself. And this pleasure prescription is filled in the internal pharmacy of the brain.Psychologist Robert Ornstein and physician David Sobel deliver the latest scientific evidence that pleasures—from saunas to siestas, chocolate to charity—and positive attitudes—from happiness to optimism—are not only enjoyable but also good for you.
Robert Ornstein, Ph.D., is a psychologist, brain researcher, and writer. He co-wrote The Psychology of Consciousness, which has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide, and more recently, The Healing Brain.

From Our Editors

Drawing on the latest scientific research, a psychologist-brain researcher and a physician deliver the inspiring message that what pleases us--like a beautiful view or a wonderful meal--improves our health. The authors of the bestselling The Psychology of Consciousness and The Healing Brain emphasize "the importance of pleasing rather than punishing ourselves".--Los Angeles Times Book Review.
