Few people know as much about the miracles of the human brain as the author of this book. As a professor at UCLA's Departments of Neurobiology and Psychology and the Brain Research Institute, Dr. Dean Buonomano studies the intricacies our cognitive functions as his fulltime occupation. That said, he knows more than most that thanks to the quirks of evolution, our brains have "bugs" analogous to software flaws that blur our memories, skew our judgment, and give us a false sense of certainty. Brain Bugs is much more than a good excuse; it's a fascinating in-depth look at one thing that makes everything else approachable. Editor's recommendation.
