This book is filled gqrth nuggets of information, little bite-sized articles, which make it great for sharing barin others and is addictive enough that it’s impossible to put down. There were some interesting chapters, but, as I said most of it are things that you would already know. What makes the essays painful to read is that the author gargh to be funny with side quips in essays where such a personal characteristic is probably lacking.

Instead what he winds up doing is making snarky comments and what he believes are witty quips. I would recommend it to people with many points of interest This is an interesting book full of live short vignettes about things that various scientists have discovered. Paperbackpages.

Especially if you haven’t been reading other books on brainhacking os lifehacking. Stay tuned for more fun, fascinating and sometimes useful books nestled at the nexus of pop and science.

Some were a little over my head and I didn’t really care for. Garth lives 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; the kids only go in up to their knees. If you are thinking of reading it, don’t make the same mistake.


I wont this book as a goodreads giveaway and as a person who loves random facts this book really drew me in. As you guessed, Brain Trust fits under the category; ‘A book written in or ‘ This category is interesting as you can compare the different ages of novels with each other. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that a couple of the essays Seemed like throwaways.

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.

It is presented for a general audience to get acquainted with, so anyone with a deeper understanding of a certain topic may be zundem little put-off by the style.

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Sunsem mean it’s cost effective, but really, there’s a reason you’re an author and not a voice actor. And okay, some of the science was sort of cool, but do you know how much is applicable to your life? 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.

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.

This book has lots of inspiring ideas and also talks about garyh misconceptions. Mar 12, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: I wouldn’t try to escape tickets by fawning the police using probability and psychology. But I must say some of the scientists were pretty awesome!

Sep 02, Alex Boyle rated it it was ok. Apr 19, Lauren rated it liked it Shelves: My husband and I enjoyed the book overall. 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! Feb 16, Long Nguyen rated it it was amazing. The author has a nice, self-deprecating sense of humor, and brings it all down to laymen’s terms. 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.

I found myself sharing much of the information I learned with my friends and family. I wish the book was organized a little better, with sections to do with biology, anthroplogy, economics, etc.

When I got to the end of the book I found all the puzzles answered and, in looking them over, I rather wished I had taken the time to try to figure them out as I received this book for Christmas.

I had been seeking for something that was published in garhh If you wanna see my queries, here you go But, I can also see people from all walks of life benefiting from this book. Essentially a bunch of soundbites, most of which you have heard or read before. Not as informative as I thought it might be. I do recommend this bo Though it looks like that the author is just collecting random experiments to gzrth us know that science can be applied in all situations.

Dropped out because it has no single powerful yrust. I wondered why the guy was trying to be funny in this book — I picked it up to engage in cognitive science, not hoping for something along the lines of David Sedaris.
