The Brain…

The Believing Brain by Michael Shermer and the Science of Fear by Daniel Gardner give us insight into how our brains construct thoughts and assumptions. Each book is somewhat unsettling as the authors delve into the many situations in which our ability to think rationally is overwritten by various factors such as fear, past experience, and misunderstandings, among others. However, each is a facinating read about what we know about how the human brain functions and makes decisions.
