Here’s a short video review: There’s scientific info about health, wealth, love and life which would appe Clearly one of the best books I’ve read this year and the year’s just started, yay! There were some interesting chapters, but, as I said most of it are things that you would already know. A couple of the sections were a little difficult to understand, but that’s probably because I’ve got a non-scientific pea brain rather than any flaw of the author.
Aug 22, Yawar added it. Feb 21, SantosGray marked it as to-read. I had a blast reading this book and learned a bunch of information about new topics I’d never even considered before. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Books by Garth Sundem.
I wish the book was organized a little better, with sections to do with biology, anthroplogy, economics, etc. Mar 05, Rick Bavera rated it it was amazing Shelves: Bust out your protractor from grade school. If Wikipedia can explain concepts like quantum gravity and Hawking’s work in the field, surely a book on better decision making can do the same. In addition to conferences, colleges, and bookstores, you may have seen Garth’s work on the Science Channel, where he’s a frequent onscreen contributor, online at his popular blog scientificblogging.
I decided to read this book because I found it sitting on a shelve in my dad’s bedroom. And see how some themes are more popular at different times.
Paperbackpages. Just read any New York Times article on decision making — it’s articulated clearly so as to leave a reader without a science background with a cogent understanding.
Want to be better at basketball? Mar 13, Natalie rated it really liked it. An entertaining, but also kind of overly simplistic read. I am a gagth and obviously this book made a lot of sense to me since I’m one of those people who question their lot in life. There’s scientific info about health, wealth, love and life which would appeal hrain any thinking person combined with examples which are easy to understand and interesting.
Second, the essays are too short and barely scratch the surface, brzin providing the reader a roadmap as to the conclusion.
The puzzles interspersed throught the book were fun too. Garth garrh in Ojai, California, with his wife, two small kids, and one large Labrador, commonly found shoulder-deep in Ojai’s municipal fountain the dog, not the kids; garthh kids only go in up to their knees.
If any of the mentioned facts interest you, the author included searchwords by which you can find pertinent data or videos on the internet. What makes the essays painful to read is that the author tries to be funny with side quips in essays where such a personal characteristic is probably lacking.
I felt in luck. There aren’t really any characters or settings in this novel as it is non-fiction and about science. Garth grew up on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride from Seattle, where his dada former President of the American Accounting Associationtaught for 34 years in the UW business school. I wouldn’t try to escape tickets by fawning the police using probability and psychology. Mini-essays on how to do certain things better using science.
But there is also some interesting social science in there about how people behave in various situations. Not as informative garh I thought it might be.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I would recommend this book to all. Memorize truzt list of I mean, what was this?
Brain Trust consists of many little essays relating science to problem-solving. The book Brain Trust does a good job of talking about “trivial” things, like making paper airplanes, the colors needed on a map, delayed gratification, or how to scam-proof yourself. It definitely doesn’t go into very much detail, but usually the author included some information that you could use to Google the science further if you were so inclined. Want to Read saving…. When talking about how to get better at Scrabble, we get one pseudo-usable piece of information think about the value of the letters your leaving and what letters you might pullbut really, most hardcore Scrabble players are already doing this to some level.
I highly recommend it!! The puzzles were fun and I’ll definitely be referencing the notes I made!
It was on my favorites list for a while. I made the mistake of loaning it out before I was finished with it, and these two friends one an English teacher and the other a math teacher have enjoyed it so much, I can’t get them to return brian. Although the theories and research presented is very summarized, the topics discussed are readily available for the most part online should any one choose to suhdem deeper.
Sep 02, Alex Boyle rated it it was ok. Another addition to the pop “brain science” books I’ve been enjoying this year. Some of the entries weren’t as interesting as others, but that has more to do with my personal taste than how well they were written.
Mar 12, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: But there This is an interesting book full of live short vignettes about things that various scientists have zundem. Mar 16, Leslie rated it it was amazing.
