Existential questions are puzzling enough, but they seem near unsolvable when we learn we should never trust the human brain. Luckily, there are people like Albert out there to help us turn our grey matter into brainpower. In his book, Your Brain Is Playing Tricks on You, the doctor invites us all to confront our neurons to better understand our biases, ourselves and boost our productivity at work.Born in Lebanon, Albert Moukheiber is a neuroscientist and clinical psychologist who likes to challenge workplace tradition. Why do we only work during the week? Why do people think weekends are a good idea? After ten years working at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, Albert launched Chiasma with a team of top neuroscientists like him. Together, they explore how we form opinions and make decisions. When not teaching, working or speaking at conferences, Albert pursues what he believes is the key to happiness—doing nothing!Well, that was before Welcome to the Jungle called on him to write a series about psychology and work. Once again, he raises existential questions. But this time, he gives us the tools to really solve them, whether he’s discussing procrastination, worst-case scenario” thinking or the definition of success. So, what if was possible to stay one step ahead of your brain?
