In Develop a Healthy Mind, Daniel Goleman, author of Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence and Richard Davidson, neuroscientist and founder of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds highlight what the latest scientific research tells us about our brain functions and common psychological conditions, habits, and what it means to have a healthy mind. They answer questions such as: How can attention training enhance emotional intelligence abilities? What are the different types of attention - and how can we recognize them?
