"Seven and a Half Lessons about the Brain"

    Hi everyone,

    I was chatting with Howard Schubiner recently and at the end, he held up a new book by Lisa Feldman Barrett. He seemed pretty excited to read it.

    Has anyone ever read something by her? If Schubiner is excited to read it, then maybe some of us should start learning about it, too... It would be good to get some of its ideas into our "hive mind."

    The book is called "Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain." I like the title.

    Here's one Amazon review:
    A fascinating, quick, to-the-point read

    I downloaded this book and read it on one afternoon, inclusive of the ample Appendix. Very accessible for a lay audience, (w/ clear, engaging analogies and metaphors), but also concisely credible for those more versed in the neuroscience and evolution science literature (I study a LOT of this stuff per my interest in cognition and its social implications—e.g., why and how do humans "reason"?). This one is going on my Holiday gift list, particularly for those of my kin and friends with young children. A fun, illuminating read.​

    I'm sure it's a bit deeper than that reviewer made it out to be, but still I like that it's lighter. I'm curious how it might connect to TMS, but I guess the point of TMS healing is to get to know our brains a bit better and to learn how to treat ourselves better.
