Kept bumping into this book by Mark Manson regularly, especially at the airport. Finally decided to buy it to see why it’s a bestseller. So far, I am finding it enjoyable. Hope to finish it soon 🙂

HowBrainsThink

I was in Islamabad last week. We had the evening off so went to the market near my hotel. Found an old books shop with tons of books stuffed in a small shop (expert storekeeping, I must say). Found the book ‘How Brains Think: Evolving Intelligence, Then And Now‘ by William H. Calvin. Had to buy it! Reading the second chapter and trying to pick up the pace. Topic is discussion: What is intelligence. Interesting, right? 🙂

I don’t remember where I first read about this book, maybe a suggestion at Amazon? Anyway, I got it through a friend and started reading it two days ago. What an engaging and eye-opening book! Just cannot stop reading until my iPad runs out of battery! Even though this book is from 1985 and neuroscience has come a long way since then, the content remains relevant even today. I love Oliver Sacks‘ approach to understanding neurological issues especially from the patient’s perspective. Looking forward to reading more case studies from this book.

Found about The 50th Law through 50 Cent‘s interview. This is a collab between Robert Greene and Fifty. Thought I’d give it a try. Finding Fifty’s part quite interesting. Only 48 more pages to go before I move on to our Book Club’s pick for this month 🙂

Confession: I’m not a sci-fi fan. That’s why when one of our book club members recommended Foundation by Isaac Asimov, I was quite reluctant to read it. Still, in the true spirit of trying all sorts of books (that I probably won’t read on my own), I decided to give it a go. It took me some time to adjust to this book but after a few pages I got hooked. What an engaging book! Finished it before anyone else did 🙂 My favorite character – Hardin! Really loved his epigrams. This is the first Asimov book that I’ve read and now I’m all set for the second book in the Foundation series (as soon as I finish reading the book selected for this month).
