The Edge Effect - Dr. Braverman

Few other books have had a more dramatic impact on my personal and professional life as The Edge Effect. This book has opened the door into understanding our neurochemistry like nothing else and is a great primer for those who are also curious.

Why be curious?

Because everything we do comes down to neurochemistry. Think about it. Why do you want to be healthy? Why do we want to have things we don't have? Why do we want to be stronger, leaner, richer, have more friends, more time, etc? Because of the way those things make us feel...happy, energetic, successful, loved.

Once you can understand your neurochemistry and how to balance it in a healthy manner, you'll feel better, sleep deeper, and think faster and more clearly. The Edge Effect by Dr. Braverman offers an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand book that simplifies an often complicated topic.

You can even visit to take a free, 10 minute quiz and determine your dominant and deficient neurotransmitter profiles.

  • Are you a social butterfly? You may be serotonin dominant.
  • Do you have social anxiety? You could be GABA deficient.
  • Have trouble with motivation? It could be your dopamine levels.
  • Do you find yourself craving sweets? You may be deficient in dopamine or serotonin.
If you want to understand your brain and how your neurochemistry can affect everything from your happiness to your sleep, weight loss to motivation, and more...The Edge Effect by Dr. Braverman is the book to start with.
