Book #25 for 2015
This was a coherent, engaging, accessible, and entertaining book, and Mlodinow did an excellent job of explaining concepts in layman’s terms without dumbing them down a lot, and he had a good balance of academic sources and personal insights. I especially liked how he provided examples drawn from his family’s experiences as Holocaust survivors and immigrants to the US. Mlodinov is the sort of non-fiction author I think would be fascinating to meet in person.
I would recommend this to anybody with an interest in behavioral psychology but who isn’t looking for something written at an advanced level.
