Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. 

Changing our behavior starts with changing our thinking and doing that successfully takes both insight and practice.

Science writer and bestselling author David DiSalvo returns to the show tonight to talk about how the brain operates via a series of "feedback loops," and to explain how we can actually redirect our thinking and influence our brain's response -- in turn influencing how we feel and act.

These insights come straight out of DiSalvo's just-published book, Brain Changer: How Harnessing Your Brain's Power to Adapt Can Change Your Life. Drawing on the latest research in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral econ, DiSalvo replaces "self-help" with "science-help," giving us practical steps to change our thinking and our lives.
