Talking with an old friend I got to blathering on about some of my favorite books of the last couple of years, with an emphasis on books that are about how we think the brain works and on non traditional learning. I wanted to list them all, and collect them so I could find them easily again, so here they are.
The Second Brain
The Brain that Changes Itself
Proust and the Squid, the Story and Science of the Reading Brain
Hackers and Painters
Secrets of a Buccaneer Scholar
Talent is Overrated
If I could only recommend one book I think it would be Predictably Irrational. If I could add another I would recommend The Brain that Changes Itself.
