A fascinating and accessible guide to how your mind cannot always be relied on,
This review is from: The Invisible Gorilla (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Invisible Gorilla is a book that illustrates how frustratingly inept the human brain can be. The book examines various studies which show that the brain doesn't always work as we would wish. It shows us that we cannot always rely on our memories or even what we think we have observed. If you are someone who has an unshakable belief in the power of 'common sense' you may change your mind after reading this book! I think this book will appeal to many people. Firstly, to people who would like to find out more about psychology and science, but are intimidated by academic books. This book is very accessible and is an enjoyable read. Secondly, it will appeal to fans of writers such as Richard Wiseman. Thirdly, it will appeal to skeptics who are interested in issues such as the MMR vaccine debacle.
