Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
16 Hrs. 30 Min.


The Political Brain is a groundbreaking scientific investigation into how the mind works, how the brain works, and what this means for why candidates win and lose elections.

Scientist and psychologist Drew Westen shows through a whirlwind tour of American political leaders how electorates vote not with their heads but with their hearts and how the marketplace that matters most of the time is the marketplace of emotion, filled with values, images, analogies, moral sentiments, and moving oratory.

The first serious investigation into how emotions affect voter behavior, The Political Brain reveals how the political landscape would change if candidates began with a twenty-first-century understanding of how the mind and brain really work.
