Overview
"Fascinating...a thought-provoking journey into emotion science."--The Wall Street Journal
"The definitive field guide to feelings and the neuroscience behind them." --Angela Duckworth, best-selling author of Grit

Lisa Feldman Barrett is at the forefront of a revolution in how we understand our innermost feelings. Her research overturns accepted beliefs about emotions' mechanics, proving that every emotion you feel is constructed in the moment, through an elaborate interplay of brain, body, and culture--rather than being an automatic, spontaneous reaction to your thoughts and experiences. No two instances of anger or happiness look alike, nor do we experience them passively. Her discoveries are already reverberating throughout the fields of psychology, medicine, criminal justice, parenting, education, meditation, governance, and even airport security.

In How Emotions Are Made, Barrett offers a lucid, engaging report from the cutting edge of psychology and neuroscience, revealing the many real-world consequences of this new science of emotion.
