Publisher's Summary

We defy common sense and good judgment on a daily basis. Learn to tame your stupid brain.
We reason poorly, think incorrectly, and overlook the truth every single day. We can't be perfect, but at least we can be a little less wrong from time to time.

Cure your mental glitches, blind spots, and errors in reasoning and logic.
Brain Blunders is a book that will get you to think about how you think. You are not so smart; in fact, humans are not so smart! This book is equal parts entertainment, neuroscience textbook, and field guide to better living. Written in an easy and humorous manner, discover the origins of the irrationalities you see all around you. 

Take a deep look into the roots of illogical and rash decisions - how they form, and how they persist in our lives. Get your fill of understanding human psychology and the peculiar choices we all make from time to time. We all recognize our big blunders, but it’s the subconscious ones that define us.

Develop clarity of thought and see the patterns of human error.

Identify how your brain deceives you

This book is a short look at how your brain affects your perception. The author outlines the many instances where what you perceive is not really reality. Understanding how this works, allows you to re-examine your own logic and conclusions. I think the author could have provided more examples of how to control these perceptions, many of them were presented as "this is what it is" with little "here's how to change it."

Overall it was a quick read with a refresher on how your brain perceives the world around you.
