Excellent book. After finishing Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain, I read The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, by Charles Duhigg. The Emotional Life of Your Brain was a great follow up. They all help with understanding how the brain works -- and more important, how you can actually change it with practice by meditation and other techniques.

Now on to a few others: two by Daniel Goleman (author of Emotional Intelligence): Working with Emotional Intelligence; and Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships. And one by Jon Kabat-Zinn -- Wherever you Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life (which helps put some of Davidson's information about changing the brain into practice).

Of course, a beer at the corner helps too.
