What Makes your Brain Happy and Why You Should Do the Opposite
Print
Years of neuroscience research have led to the current understanding of the brain as a prediction machine. The problem is that our brains' evolved capacity for avoiding and defending against threats has a slew of by-products, all tightly woven into our day-to-day thinking and behavior, that ensnare us while making our threat-anticipating brains "happy."

I think the title is a bit misleading, but it is a great neuroscience read for the layperson, with excellent suggestions for further reading. It is hard to take all the information in, but if you get just a couple of things from it, I think you'll appreciate it.
