Exuberance: The Passion for Life by Kay Redfield Jamison


Kay Redfield Jamison examines one of life's most exalted states: exuberance. This “abounding, ebullient, effervescent emotion” manifests itself everywhere from child’s play to scientific breakthrough and is crucially important to learning, risk-taking, social cohesiveness, and survival itself.

The book explores whether exuberance can be inherited, parses its neurochemical grammar, and documents the methods people have used to stimulate it.
