The Idiot Brain
A Neuroscientist Explains What your Head Is Really up toBook - 2016
Dean Burnett celebrates the downright laughable things our minds do to us, as well as exposing the fact that people are often way off in their thinking about how the brain works. For example, did you know that: your memory is egotistical? Conspiracy theories and superstitions stem from your brain's insistence that the world isn't random? Dean Burnett's unpredictable and entertaining first book explores the unexpected side of everyday life, highlighting where conventional thinking is wrong and how our brains trip us up at every turn. This is lucid, funny and smart: in short, the best kind of popular science.
