Workaches: The Neuroscience Guide to Surviving and Thriving at Work by Deborah Robin Winograd, Ph.D. and Beth A. Cohen, Ph.D. gives good insights into the world of work. This book gives readers a peek into the dynamics in the professional space which can at times, directly or indirectly, affect the health and well-being of an individual. The book speaks about the possibilities of solving problems and adapting to a world that is constantly changing. Every individual deserves to receive more than a paycheck and the workplace should be a place not to just survive but thrive. The topics dealt with in this book apply to all workplaces and the authors also share stories from many individuals of how over the years they navigated through their respective workplaces.

The authors' approach to a relevant topic is engaging and will guide readers towards a positive work life by showing readers how to comprehend and accept the influences of other people there. The key concepts from the latest neuroscience research will assist readers in understanding how workplaces can adversely affect health and well-being and help repair the damage caused by workaches. The authors handle the subject extensively and expansively and will help readers address workaches using applied neuroscience. It is also a good book to help readers realize the importance of human relationships at the workplace and to strive towards improving them. The book stresses the power of relationships and how now employers are able to gauge the financial value in allotting time, money, and other resources so that the ambiance at the workplace and the interpersonal relationships between workers are healthy.


Fantastic Read. Very helpful for anyone looking to better their work environment, at any level of leadership.
