And that's not always a bad thing.

Swift, this thought-provoking book combines captivating stories of extraordinarily passionate individuals with the latest science on the biological and psychological factors that give rise to--and every bit as important, and powerful, compact, sustain--passion. If you're not careful,  suffering, passion can become an awful curse, leading to endless seeking, and burnout.
