Dean Burnett at Sale Library

Dean Burnett at Sale Library

15th June 2018

After a hugely successful visit to Wordfest in 2016 with the acclaimed The Idiot Brain, writer, neuroscientist and stand-up comedian, Dr Dean Burnett, returns to Wordfest to talk about his latest book, The Happy Brain, The Science of Where Happiness Comes From and Why.

Where does happiness come from? Is it your brain? Is it your gut? (Spoiler alert: yes. Sort of.) Or is it external? In The Happy Brain, Dean delves into our most private selves to investigate what causes happiness, where it comes from, and why we are so desperate to hang onto it.

Cardiff-based, Dean is the most-read blogger on the Guardian Science network. Since starting Brain Flapping three years ago, the blog has been viewed over 9,000,000 times.
