Interesting info on how ours brains function.

Havent finished but what ive read was very interesting and written in short informitave chunks rather than massively lengthy chapters that always seem to lead nowhere. Very interesting read.

I found most of the topics interesting, but not nearly enough covered, although this book is "Brain Briefs." I also found this book hard to binge, and I think that is partially because of the topic changing, plus my interest in each topic differs. I won this book in a giveaway.

This is an educational and entertaining book written by two psychologists about the human brain. They cover many interesting topics in short, understandable chapters. Subjects include why we love kitten videos, can we do more by multitasking, and if prejudice is avoidable.

DNF but only because Sam Kean is the only way I can stay engaged in nonfiction. Sorry :(

New Psychology in short bites.

Answers are well explained but it's all a bit boring.

Loved it. We recently had Art Markman on the VeryPink Knits podcast, and we were able to ask him questions about knitting and the brain, which was such a treat. I'm a fan, and I never miss the Two Guys on Your Head podcast. This book, with its short chapters, was sort of like the podcast in print form. Little bites of learning made entertaining.
