Are you happy? Do you want to be happy? If so – read on.

This event will have all the answers! Well it has some of the answers and lots of questions but trust us they are good!

Neuroscientist Dean Burnett, author of the acclaimed 'The Idiot Brain’, investigates the Science of Happiness. Or whether such a thing even exists.

The enthusiasm for and expectation of happiness are so widespread today that fundamental questions about it are often overlooked. For starters, the most basic question of all: where does happiness come from? Is it your brain – a mere concoction of chemicals, or network of neurons? Is it in fact your gut? [Spoiler alert: yes. Sort of.] Or is it external? Is it love or sex or money or success? And what are these doing to our brains anyway?

Join Chorleywood Bookshop and Neuroscientist Dean Burnett as we delve into our most private selves to investigate what causes happiness, where it comes from, and why we are so desperate to hang onto it. The questions Dean raises are ones we so rarely ask today, but they address a major part of what it means to be a modern-day human.
