    Story
    (556)

    No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

    Story
    What did you love best about Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills?

    A lot of good scientific information about neurology and psychology gathered, organized and presented very well.


    What other book might you compare Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills to and why?

    Exploring Metaphysics - Because it gives the opposite view on much of the same subject matter.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The information of statistics and how we think we see patterns among data points that is actually really falling into the normal realms of "chance."


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No Way.


    Any additional comments?

    Novella, while doing a good job in presenting a large amount of information in ways that make learning the information easy, suggests that much of what we believe does not really stand-up to scientific scrutiny. He calls out to us admonishing us to not fall into certain "traps" as we think about different things. Yet, I find him to be just as guilty in his own way of "falling into the same traps" that he lectures us on to avoid.

  • World without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 20 mins)

    Story
    (10)

    Mr. Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease like scurvy or pellagra aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modem mans diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile. Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non-drug approach? The author contends that the answer is to be found, not in science, but in politics, and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The painstaking effort to assemble the historical data and organize it well into s meaningful factline.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

    N/A


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Amazed at the intensity of the misguidedness that the US Doctors possessed over the decades and their willingness to succeed their industry to the robber barons.


    Any additional comments?

    Although the storyline is a two decades old, it i still valid as "nothing has changed..."

    In today's information age, medical myths are all around us. And using them to make decisions about your own health can be harmful. Even deadly. That's why it's critical to understand the accuracy of medical information and discover the truth about everyday health and well-being. That's the core of this important series of 24 eye-opening lectures from an acclaimed neurologist, educator, and science broadcaster.

    Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Steven Novella?

    No


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Concept.


    What aspect of Professor Steven Novella’s performance would you have changed?

    It was okay.


    Do you think Medical Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths: What We Think We Know May Be Hurting Us needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, Not by this author. 30% of what he alleged was a myth was only a myth to a closed-minded Western Institutionally Trained Scientist-Medical Person--typically trained to disavow anything not propagandized as "fact" by Big Pharma....
