Bestselling author Dr John Medina turns his expertise to the professional world, guiding the reader through what brain science and evolutionary biology have to say about topics ranging from office space and work-life balance to power dynamics and work interactions.

Medina discusses vital questions to do with the workplace in the time of COVID-19, such as how to keep people interested in a presentation, how to keep oneself engaged in work and the office, and how to be productive - all based on scientific peer-reviewed research. He also covers topics such as why taking breaks in nature during the workday improves productivity; how planning a meeting beforehand makes it more effective; why an open-office plan isn't a good office plan; how a more diverse team is a more potent team; why talking to co-workers online is so exhausting; why allowing for failure is vital to a company's success; and much, much more.

As ever, Medina's charming descriptions and hilarious anecdotes break the science down to practical applications that every reader can understand and benefit from.
