From a course they created for professionals, Mark Waldman and Chris Manning adapted their lectures, and present simple brain exercises, based on the latest neuroscience research, to guide readers on what makes us happy, wealthy, and wise.

The promise of their original class—and now of this book—is to help people create more "wealth" in their lives, defined as the combination of money, happiness, and success. The book presents both the scientific background and sets of “NeuroWisdom” exercises that will help everyone transform their environment into a more meaningful and enjoyable place. By spending just a few minutes each day, these exercises reduce neurological stress and increase happiness, motivation, and productivity. The “worry” centers of the brain are turned off and the optimism circuits are turned on. Work becomes more pleasurable and creativity is increased, enabling the brain to anticipate and solve problems more efficiently.
