    I really liked this book Each chapter focused on a different aspect of the mind For example one chapter discussed our ability to mindread other people referring to how we can read subtle cues about a person's mood whether they are lying etc from their facial expressions tone etc and we have no idea we can even do this He points out that we DO usually sense that we enjoy conversing with some people than others even when

    This book is fine but it's on the level of a breezy magazine piece The picture it presents of the brain is a vastly simplified one and the set pieces Johnson delivers in each chapter skate along the surface of the implications of modern neuroscience for philosophy sociology politics etc It turns out all the rich detail got dumped in the endnotes but my opinion of the book was well set before I got to them This would have

In this nationally bestselling compulsively readable account of what makes brain science a vital component of people's uest to know themselves acclaimed science writer Steven Johnson subjects his own brain to a battery of tests to find out what's really going on inside He asks How do we read other peopleWhat is the neurochemistry behind love and sexWhat does it mean that the brain is teeming with powerful chemicals closely related to recreational. Disturbingly simple depiction of the mind Johnson is unuestionably in awe of the brain His awe seems to have impaired his skepticism The result is that he sensationalized what he learned and at times provided absolutely false information as if it were fact For example He is under the assumption that the better people are at reading emotions the extroverted Where is the evidence for such an absurd claim This is why extraverts often misdiagnose introverts with autism when in fact they are not even on the spectrum Worse despite being around some of the most respected neuroscientists the world has to offer he was still holding tight to the myth that people only use 10% of their brains It s absurd These are only two examples of the many He really didn t have a good enough grasp of neuroscience to write this book Some journalists and science writers can swing it but he is not nearly skeptical enough to pull it off The book s target audience seems to be those who also have no education in the neurosciences Sadly those people will believe what he is saying because he included work from very respected researchers who have conducted some pretty good studies He related their work as well as many of his own assumptions The very way in which he ties together the bits of information he gleaned from the researchers really demonstrates his lack of understanding For him to have written a book to educate others seems grossly irresponsible I would highly suggest finding an introductory book written by an actual scientist instead
