Brain Bugs: How the Brain's Flaws Shape Our Lives Reviews
This book was purchased as an audiobook and later a paperback. It is well written, so much so, that if non-fiction could be a page turner, this is it. I use the information of how the original architecture of our brain leads us astray on rational thinking on a daily basis. On which brain flaw is how we choose what immediately looks good, rather than the better long term solution. If we don't delay the initial thought, we can loose out on the better option. So many more... all the points have served me well and is a regular part of my conversation with my best friends.

I read this book over a month ago and I haven't yet stopped thinking about it. It is a fascinating account of how the brain learns and associates ideas. The brain is continually manipulating data in order to make that data fit the brain's template of the world. This book redefined my opinion of what it means to learn.
Got this book for as a requirement text for one of my course but ended up liking it very much! Great book, really makes you think and is not your everyday, boring education book. Definitely get this book just to read! I'm thinking about keeping book for personal use.
well written, not a lot of new information for people who are familiar with the topic.
I have this book as a requirement for a class. It is an interesting read. I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed it. If this is a subject that interests you, I would certainly recommend it!
This book will help it's readers be better critical thinkers. A lot of interesting phenomenon that we in this advertising, media age should be aware of. (I'm not convinced a single bit by the theory of evolution, so I docked a star)
