Garth lives in Ojai, California, with his wife, two small kids, and one large Labrador, sunfem found shoulder-deep brakn Ojai’s municipal fountain the dog, not the kids; the kids only go in up to their knees. They’ll eat this sort of info up and debate it with respect to their own experiences. It would probably make a great addition to the bookshelf of a classroom or make an interesting read on a vacation, where you could regale your friends with tidbits of knowledge as you wait to board planes or sit around in a hotel room.
This book is filled with nuggets of information, little bite-sized articles, which make it great for sharing with others and truzt addictive enough that it’s impossible to put down.
It jumps fast from one topic to the next And okay, some of the science was sort of cool, but do you know how much is applicable to your life? It is presented for a tgust audience to get acquainted with, usndem anyone with a deeper understanding of a certain topic may be a little put-off by the style. Of course, the evolutionary bias was obvious, hence the 3 star rating.
I would recommend it to anyone who is curious and just wants to know more about the world.
Good exercise in exercising your brain with some fun yet useful trivia. I guess it’s like more talk less action.
I received this book as a first reads win. I wont this book as a goodreads giveaway and as a person who loves random facts this book really drew me in.
Sometimes I like books that are divided in lots of little parts because I can pick them up and put them down pretty easily and don’t feel too guilty leaving them to sit for a few weeks before resuming my read. The items are “useful” trivia, and the author talks to various “experts” on the subjects he deals with, approximatelyso that he can get the “scoop” on how to implement the ideas he explores. This alone promises the knowledge of being able to better understand and thus manipulate undesirable situations into more favorable outcomes.
But I don’t think that’s what the author wanted. It was actually obvious to us that what was attributed to evolution just reaffirmed the design of the Creator.
Brain Trust : Garth Sundem :
Memorize this list of 40 words, plus a couple of ‘Bingos’ 7 letter words in Scrabble. It gafth out that if you think of eating a lot you will feel like you’ve already eaten. In fact, I was in awe that he could explain such complicated scientific findi I’m a total science geek, so I was really happy when I won Brain Trust on Goodreads.
Feb 24, Gartth rated it really liked it. What I’m saying is that it CAN be done. On the one hand, it provides insight into behavioral choices and evolutionary patterns.
Garth Sundem on ‘Brain Trust’ | The Current
This was a disappointment, and the only thing I think it got me to improve on was my accuracy at slamming books down in disgust. I’m positive that this alone is what drew so many readers to pick up this book and start reading.
However, this book attempts to wrap complex concepts into a book that is insultingly dumbed down and does not provide the understanding behind theories, making the reader wonder what leads to such wide postulations. It was a really enjoyable read. Yet, it should do so without asking readers to engage in ignorant acceptance. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. And the cover looked fairly new so I looked at the date it was published; I did not know that behavioral economics was a field!
