Practical methods to fully utilize your brain. Learn how it works and you can harness it to the fullest!
This is a book about practical neuroscience. That means that while it is scientifically based, it gets down to how you can compensate for your brain's evolutionary habits and excel in spite of them. Our brains are stuck in the year 10,000 BC, so let's find out how to make that work for us.
A combination of applied psychology and self-help techniques.
Super Brain is a unique look at your brain. First, we take a quick tour of the brain's most important (and also annoying) structures and aspects. Then, we take the shortcut to addressing many of the brain's shortcomings with strategies designed to work with them seamlessly. Think of Super Brain as 20 percent textbook (only the essentials!) and 80 percent field guide to navigating the world in a better, more efficient, and smarter way.
