Summary

Countless charities and awareness campaigns work tirelessly to show people that mental health problems are common and serious issues. But when it comes to mental health matters, one question that's rarely asked is...why?

Why are conditions like depression and anxiety so common?

Why is our mental health so vulnerable to the stresses and events of modern life?

Why do so many mental health problems have pronounced physical symptoms?

Why, if mental health problems are so commonplace, does anyone need to be made 'aware' of them in the first place?

And why is there still so much confusion and stigma about mental health matters?

Drawing from nearly 20 years working in the areas of neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry, international best-selling author Dr Dean Burnett (The Idiot Brain, The Happy Brain) hopes to answer these questions and more in his new audiobook Psycho-Logical (exclusive to Audible). Combining in-depth research with genuine testimonials from those who deal with their own issues on a daily basis, Psycho-Logical aims to uncover just what we think is going on with our brains when serious mental health problems occur, how and why the available therapies work (when they do), and just how flexible and uncertain much of the scientific understanding of mental health is.

Expertly narrated and written in an engaging and straightforward style, Psycho-Logical is must for anyone who's ever dealt with mental health issues of their own, knows someone who has or is interested in the ever-more-important subject matter.

Please note: this audiobook contains adult language.

Super informative!

The book can be very technical at times, but the wonderful use of easy to understand analogies keeps you tuned in.

It's a bit much for a one or two session listen, due to the vast amount of information and studies discussed. I absolutely enjoyed digesting every chapter though!

Wonderful work and it has helped me understand mental health better, and changed some of my beliefs about addiction.

interesting book on the ways of the brain

a lot of stating the obvious (I hope) but you will definately find some nuggets there you weren't aware of.

Nice

Very grounded language on the level of a non-psychologist but useful on level of psychology student. One of the best audiobooks 1st year psychology student can listen. Information up to date but not overload with scientific terms. In TEDtalk style.

Another gem by Dean Burnett

This is such a good book, I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject. Dean Burnett is incredibly funny and made me laugh out loud many times. Amazing narration by Matt Addis as well. I would love to listen more audiobooks by him.
