This book outlines some of the latest scientific ideas about the emotions in an accessible and exciting way. Dylan Evans shows that emotions are not just luxuries, but help us to live more successful lives. Drawing on research in psychology, biology, and artificial intelligence, he provides a stimulating introduction to a topic relevant to us all. 'Evans provides a charming crash course on human sentiments' -The Times 'Evans roams enjoyably through the firelds of psychology, psychotherapy, robotics, drugs and old-fashioned romance, like Alian de Botton in a labcoat' -The Guardian (Review) 'An admirably clear, intelligent and witty introduction' -Steven Poole, Guardian
"A pop science classic."--John Walsh, Independent on Sunday
