Cordelia Fine: A Mind of its Own

July 13, 2007


For those of you brave enough to learn about how your brain distorts and deceives reality (that’s right: YOUR reality) I can’t recommend highly enough Cordelia Fine’s “a mind of its own” [Norton]. I am actually the Wizard of Oz, or I think I am, and behind the scenes is this busy little man huffing and puffing and creating a big scene, hoping you won’t discover what’s really going on. The chapter titles speak for themselves: The Vain Brain; The Emotional Brain; The Immoral Brain; The Deluded Brain; The Pig-headed Brain; The Secretive Brain; The Weak-Willed Brain; The Bigoted Brain; and The Vulnerable Brain.

For someone who truly wishes to “know thyself” this is a must read.
