This website is much more technical than the book.
How Emotions are Made is written in plain English for the general public. This website adds scientific details that were too lengthy or complex for the book.
I haven't read the book. Can I still use this website?
Certainly! You'll probably need the book, however, to understand the content fully. This site isn't complete in itself — I wrote it as a supplement to the book.
