Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Meet Emily and Paul, the parents of two young children. Emily is a newly promoted executive in a large corporation, while Paul has his own business as a consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. For them, just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

In this book, we travel inside the brains of Emily and Paul as they attempt to sort the vast quantities of information they're presented with and figure out how to prioritize, organize, and act on it. Fortunately for Emily and Paul—and for readers of Your Brain at Work—they're in good hands: David Rock knows how the brain works—and more specifically, how it works in a work setting.

Your Brain at Work explores:
  • Why your brains feels so taxed, and how to take full advantage of your mental resources
  • Why it's so hard to focus, and how to better manage distractions
  • How to maximize your chance of finding insights that can solve seemingly insurmountable problems
  • How to keep your cool in any situation, so that you can make the best decisions possible
  • How to collaborate with others more effectively
  • Why providing feedback is so difficult, and how to make it easier
  • How to effectively change other people's behavior
Rock shows how it's possible not only to survive in today's overwhelming work environment but to succeed in it—and still feel energized at the end of the day, with a sense of accomplishment.

—Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business and University Professor, University of Southern California and author of On Becoming a Leader


"Simply put, this intriguing book offers fascinating research about the brain's functions, limitations and capacities, and it teaches us how we can "direct" our own brain chemistry in order to achieve fulfillment and success. Well worth reading and ingesting these skills."
—Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People


"Rock deserves an ovation for his writing and direction."
—Fort Worth Star-Telegram


"This book will improve how you work-by showing you how your brain works!"
