    With its trillions of connections, the human brain is more beautiful and complex than anything we could ever build, but it’s far from perfect: our memory is unreliable; we can’t multiply large sums in our heads; advertising manipulates our judgment; we tend to distrust people who are different from us; supernatural beliefs and superstitions are hard to shake; we prefer instant gratification to long-term gain; and what we presume to be rational decisions are often anything but.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Dean Buonomano and/or William Hughes?

    How poor for the author to let his political biases enter into this subject. Of course such is the liberal need to insert their views everywhere.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dean Buonomano again?

    No never, once a biased author always one. I would avoid him in any way that he might communicate.


    What does William Hughes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narrator did fine with what he had to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Brain Bugs?

    Delete the politics and of course the author had to make religious values be a "brain bug" in predictable left liberal ideology ways.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was a way to pre-identify such political writings being inserted into such books. Maybe I need to take the time to read more reviews that might do that.
