Idiot Brain: What Your Head Is Really Up To by Dean Burnett

Idiot Brain: What Your Head Is Really Up ToVery very readable book!

The chapters are clearly organized, and it shows various ways that your brain is busy doing things behind your back.

One minor nitpick – even though there’s a lot on how your brain responds to various social situations, the chapter on fight or flight does not mention the corresponding reaction of fear-or-fawn, even though fawning on an attacker is a very social response to fear: don’t hit me, i acknowledge that you’re higher than me on the social hierarchy!
