Description

Why can your foot move halfway to the brake pedal before you're consciously aware of danger? Why do you notice when your name is mentioned in a conversation that you didn't think you were listening to? Why are people whose name begins with J more likely to marry other people whose name begins with J? Why is it so difficult to keep a secret? Renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman navigates the depths of the subconscious brain to illuminate these surprising mysteries. Taking in brain damage, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synaesthesia, criminal law, artificial intelligence and visual illusions.

Commentaires

“Eagleman has a talent for testing the untestable, for taking seemingly sophomoric notions and using them to nail down the slippery stuff of consciousness.” ( The New Yorker)
“A fun read by a smart person for smart people…it will attract a new generation to ponder their inner workings.” ( New Scientist)
“Your mind is an elaborate trick, and mastermind David Eagleman explains how the trick works with great lucidity and amazement. Your mind will thank you.” (Kevin Kelly, Wired Magazine)

The best introduction to understanding your brain

Do you think that you are in charge of your actions? What should we do with criminals who clearly committed a crime because of say a tumor in the brain? How can we use the brains ability to change to our advantage?

From start to finish this book was highly interesting, highly entertaining, and highly relavant for anyone who want to understand the brain better. Though I am soon getting my PhD in neuroscience and has taught medical students for several years, this book gave me new insights and many examples that I now use when teaching students. Though it gives you more than just the basics, the reader does not need much in terms of background knowledge. Eagleman does a great job of explaining difficult concepts.

I rarely give top ratings to books, but this book deserved it. Buy!

My first audiobook. I am truly impressed .

If you could sum up Incognito in three words, what would they be?

Thought provoking; insightful

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The purpose of this review was not so much to critique the book but to give praise to the narrator. I had never listened to an audiobook before so I approached my first encounter with skepticism. Much to my delight I was gobsmacked at the high quality of the narration. The narrator spoke in a dynamic and appropriate manner, emphasising critical sentence points and the like. The overall experience has been a pleasurable one and I would recommend audiobooks to all.

Rollercoaster ride of our inner cosmos

Eagleman does an incredible job of sharing the astonishing details of our brains and how it all seamlessly comes together behind the veil.

Absolutely fascinating!

I loved every bit of this audio book! The author explains a tremendous amount of studies that concern human cognition, behavior and biology. He unmasks many mistakes of the human experience apparatus, discusses ethnic issues, free will and, subconscious patterns. I would 100% recommended this to anybody that is interested to learn about himself, others and human experience in general.

a very good book but..

I really enjoyed this book. it's both entertaining and informative. Alot of the concepts are explained in an intuitive and relatable manner that's easy to comprehend and remember. This how science should be presented to the general audience. My biggest critic is that sometimes the whole book felt like he was laying foundations for us to conclude how we are mostly controlled by the biology and chemistry of our brains in order to promote his ideas for changing the criminal justice system. I am not for or against his believes or him expressing it, it just felt by the end of the book that I was being manipulated by all the interesting information that are very rational to reach his conclusions and support his advocations. Would have loved a more neutral tone to such a book but it doesn't takeaway alot of credit from Eagelman for he is a very talented researcher and storyteller.
