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.

Brain Trust by Garth Sundem | : Books
Memorize this list of 40 words, plus a couple of ‘Bingos’ 7 letter words in Scrabble. The author has a nice, self-deprecating sense of humor, and brings it all down to laymen’s terms. The book is a very condense and simplified guide to the many curious things in life that is happening around us. Although I wouldn’t recommend reading this book cover to cover it is great in short bursts. And that, perhaps, is braln.
Some of the “secrets” were really interesting to read about. There’s scientific info about health, wealth, love vrain life ttust would appe Clearly one of the best books I’ve sunde this year and the year’s just started, yay! Though it looks like that the author is just collecting random experiments to let us know that science can be applied in all situations. 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 book has puzzles every so often. There are lots of insights into many of the things we do sunde everyday life. I wish the book was organized a little better, with sections to do with biology, anthroplogy, economics, etc.
This book has lots of inspiring ideas and also talks about some misconceptions.
Definitely an interesting book. I do recommend this book for people interested in science and people who are a bit closed-minded. There are many lifestyle hacks that got to do with keeping yourself healthy, and helping you lead a better life.
Trivia About Brain Trust: There were some interesting chapters, but, as I said most of it are things that you would already know. I received this book as a first reads win.

I would recommend this book to all. I enjoyed my read, but I don’t think a lot of the knowledge in the book will stick with me; maybe the parts about body language when flirting or eating within the sp Pop science books aren’t usually my thing, but this one had its interesting points.
Because I kept thinking about studying. On the one hand, it provides insight into behavioral choices and evolutionary patterns. Something new I learnt from this book was it is easiest to steal things when in plain sight Of course I wouldn’t really do that.
Ranging from interesting to weird to hilarious, the essays within yield some interesting tidbits. Think of it as a nice change of pace and enjoy yourself. I wont this book as a goodreads giveaway and as a person who loves random facts this book really drew me in.
