Summary
"Can you trust your brain? Perhaps it occasionally misfires when faced with the 13 times table, or persistently fails to master parallel parking. But the brain is pretty amazing. Never before have we known so much about the sophistication of those one hundred billion grey cells. You might feel justified in thinking that you know what your brain's up to, and that you're in control." "Sorry. Think again. Your brain is vainglorious. It deludes you. It is pigheaded, emotional and secretive. Oh, and it's also a bigot. If your brain were a person you definitely wouldn t invite it to parties and it would probably be a politician. This book reveals the fiendish little sins your brain gets up to behind your back. An enlightening tour of the less salubrious side of human psychology, dotted with popular explanations of the latest research and fascinating real-life examples, Cordelia Fine's book tells you everything you always wanted to know about the brain - and plenty you probably didn't."--BOOK JACKET
