The Pleasure Trap: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health & Happiness

by Douglas J. Lisle, Ph.D. & Alan Goldhamer, D.C.

"A wake-up call to even the most health conscious people, this book challenges conventional wisdom about sickness and unhappiness in today's contemporary culture and offers ground-breaking solutions for achieving change. Authors Douglas Lisle, Ph.D., and Alan Goldhamer, DC, provide a fascinating new perspective on how modern life can turn so many smart, savvy people into the unwitting saboteurs of their own well-being.

Inspired by stunning original research, comprehensive clinical studies, and their successes with thousands of patients, the authors construct a new paradigm for the psychology of health that offers fresh hope for anyone stuck in a self-destructive cycle. Learn unique insights into the factors that make us susceptible to dietary and lifestyle excesses; then discover how to restore the biological processes designed by nature to keep us running at maximum efficiency and vitality. This book can change your life."



Delightfully candid and warm, Dr. Douglas Lisle is one of psychology's most innovative and curious minds. Deeply dedicated to exploring the mysteries of human behavior from fresh, uncharted waters, his research in evolutionary psychology and its impact on health, happiness and the pursuit of pleasure is generating critical acclaim.

6D Book Club will be exploring The Pleasure Trap over the next few months and each week we will share some of the ideas presented in the chapters we will be reading. Also, we will look at ways in which these ideas can be transformed into action in our lives; transforming knowledge into wisdom for ourselves in the process.

Those musings will be posted here on our blog each week in our new series entitled Knowledge to Wisdom. You are very welcome to join the discussion by commenting. We ask only two things before you post - please always remain sincere and respectful and before posting a claim or fact, be sure to CRAAP test that information.

We are each responsible for our thoughts and words and how we choose to express and share them as knowledge. Our 6D Community is a place of exploration, information and consideration - respect and kindness are our guides.
