OVERRIDE by Dr. David Kipper and Dr. Connell Cowan

Your brain is constantly seeking comfort. How you handle yourself boils down to how you’re hardwired, embedded in your inherited neurochemistry.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Based on today’s breakthrough science into neurotransmitters, a new book, OVERRIDE by Dr. David Kipper and Dr. Connell Cowan, reveals a clear path to overcoming bad habits that sabotage our success in career, love, and healthy living.

People’s brains are constantly seeking comfort. Whether it’s recovering from a stressful event that gets their adrenaline pumping or the slow drip-drip of low-lying stress, how people handle themselves boils down to how they’re hardwired, embedded in their inherited neurochemistry.

People’s neurochemistry puts them into one of two tribes: Swords are coded to be particularly sensitive to stimulation, novelty, reward, and external expression, while the Shields of the world are coded to be more sensitive to avoiding harm and danger, internalizing emotions. Each coping style possesses strengths as well as an array of behavioral shortcomings. The coping styles reverted to under stress have evolved to help people survive, but they are also the root cause of the most destructive and stubborn behaviors.

OVERRIDE: Discover Your Brain Type, Why You Do What You Do, and How to Do It Better delivers a fascinating theory: Understanding people’s chemical tendencies explains how they set their stress relief in motion, and by understanding their tendencies they’ll be able to make healthy life decisions for the better. In exhilarating, illuminating, and frequently funny style, readers will go from identifying their personal neurotypes – through an easy and accurate test – to understanding their vulnerabilities, and break out of self-defeating patterns to make meaningful change with a science-based approach.

OVERRIDE details the struggles of people, both Dopamine- and Seratonin-Types, and show how together with them the authors found a path to change that can start this minute and last a lifetime. Complete with easy-to-use strategies and exercises, here are engaging micro and macro insights into iconic human problems, backed up by the latest scientific research into why we are the way we are.

Combining groundbreaking research with inspiring and revelatory real-life stories of struggle and transformation, OVERRIDE will reveal the blueprint of one’s DNA, giving a practical, easy-to-grasp, yet revolutionary framework for achieving the life you really want.

OVERRIDE is available on Amazon and other popular retail outlets where books are sold.
