Why can’t we think straight when hungry?
What’s the point of nightmares?
And why is it so impossible to forget embarrassing memories?

Emotions can be a pain. After losing his dad to Covid-19, Dean Burnett found himself wondering what it would be like to live a life without emotion. And so, he decided to put his feelings under the microscope – for science.

In Emotional Ignorance, Dean takes us on an incredible journey of discovery, stretching from the origins of life to the end of the universe. Along the way he reveals:

  • why we would ever follow our gut;
  • whether things really were better in the old days;
  • why it’s so hard to stop doomscrolling;
  • and how sad music can make us happier.

Combining expert analysis, brilliant humour and powerful insights into our inner lives, Dean uncovers how, far from holding us back, our emotions make us who we are.
