While the world of work has changed dramatically since its initial publication, the science and substance of the book have become even more relevant.

Last week may feel like an eternity ago, so 2009 probably feels like a past life.

That’s the year Your Brain at Work by David Rock, NLI’s co-founder and CEO, was first released. But now, 11 years since its initial publication, Your Brain at Work has been published as a revised and updated edition.

While the world of work, and the world in general, have changed dramatically since 2009, the science and substance of the book have become even more relevant. Your Brain at Work not only inspired this blog, and our podcast of the same name, but continues to inspire leaders across the world to make their organizations more brain-friendly, more innovative, more productive, and in a word, more human.

In Your Brain at Work, David takes readers inside the heads of a modern two-career couple as they mentally process their workday, to reveal how we can better organize, prioritize, remember, and process our daily lives.

The book shows how it’s possible for this couple, and readers like them, not only to survive in today’s overwhelming work environment but succeed in it—and still feel energized and accomplished at the end of the day.

The updated edition features up-to-date scientific insights to reflect the latest understanding from the field, and revised stories that feel even closer to the present day. If you haven’t yet experienced the power of slowly learning about your brain as you watch two people go through their day in a story, now might be a great time to check out the book.

Pick up your copy of the book here or visit our website to see the science from Your Brain at Work in practice at organizations around the world. On sale August 11.
