Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the bestselling author of The Drunkard’s Walk, a startling, eye-opening examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world.

“Mlodinow plunges into the realm of the unconscious mind accompanied by the latest scientific research ... [with] plenty of his trademark humor.” —Los Angeles Times

Over the past two decades of neurological research, it has become increasingly clear that the way we experience the world—our perception, behavior, memory, and social judgment—is largely driven by the mind's subliminal processes and not by the conscious ones, as we have long believed. In Subliminal, Leonard Mlodinow employs his signature concise, accessible explanations of the most obscure scientific subjects to unravel the complexities of the subliminal mind. In the process he shows the many ways it influences how we misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates; how we misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions; and how we misremember important events—along the way, changing our view of ourselves and the world around us.

Eye opening

This book really was eye opening after reading about the many experiments that support the theory of our unconscious mind playing a large role in decision making that we believe is mostly conscious and based on moral judgement.

Everyone should take the time to read this book

An incredible and helpful insight into the unconscious world that we experience everyday in ignorant bliss, this read will definitely open your mind and expand the way in which you think about yourself and the world around you.
