    The quest to understand the mind has motivated some of history's most profound thinkers. But only in our own time are we beginning to see the true complexity of this quest, as today's philosophers draw on the latest evidence from neuroscience, psychology, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and other fields to probe deeply into the inner workings of the mind.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Money and Banking: What Everyone Should Know to be better than the print version?

    This IS the audio edition - and by extension yes i would.


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

    Well, yes, but given the length of the lecture that would be very challenging thing to accomplish ;P

    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, for first-time readers in the topic of critical thinking. but don't go into further detail, so won't recommend it to people who's already read a few books on this topic


    Would you be willing to try another book from The Great Courses? Why or why not?

    Yes, great execution - would love to see a course done by this person on a topic I'm new to

    Conventional wisdom suggests there is a sharp distinction between emotion and reason. Emotions are seen as inferior, disruptive, primitive, and even bestial forces. These 24 remarkable lectures suggest otherwise-that emotions have intelligence and provide personal strategies that are vitally important to our everyday lives of perceiving, evaluating, appraising, understanding, and acting in the world.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one, don't buy, its a waste


    Has The Passions: Philosophy and the Intelligence of Emotions turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Voice difficult listen to, content is irrelevant and filled with useless stories and rather generic examples with no clear conclusions


    Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Robert C. Solomon’s performances?

    NO.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO.

    Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

    Would you listen to Grain Brain again? Why?

    Yes, full of detailed instructions on how to capitalise on the knowledge it provides, and because of this fact, hard to digest all content in one listen


    Which scene was your favorite?

    last few chapters where author lists that can be practically followed
