Like many of us, Andy Boyle struggled with his weight all his life. But it wasn’t until one fateful pants-splitting incident that he realized he really ought to do something about it. As he fumbled through his weight-loss journey, Andy learned the hard way that there’s a difference between real, effective methods and the crap that big businesses are trying to sell you. In Big Problems, Andy explores the reasons why we’ve gotten fat in the first place as well as real ways to lose those extra pounds.

The Buddha didn’t use an MRI to become enlightened, and yet 2,500 years later neuroscientists are discovering the mechanisms of the brain that underpin the Buddha’s penetrating analysis of the mind. With deep research, stories, guided meditations, examples, and applications, Dr. Hanson offers a fascinating, inspiring vision of who we can be—and an effective path for fulfilling this wonderful possibility.
