Entertaining, moving, fascinating, and timely, this limited series dives deeply into the nature of human emotion. With research and expert opinion that feels fresh, Brown's passion is contagious in Atlas of the Heart. Her ability to connect with an audience and communicate life-changing information about the emotional life of our species is addictive. She also shares charming anecdotes that serve to make the series feel personal.

Language and some intense topics make for tricky viewing for younger teens, but older teens interested in psychology, or those who are simply curious about relationships, will get a lot out of this series. Families who watch this together are sure find lots of fascinating topics for exploration and discussion.
