I found most of the book to be more resembling data than information. Second, I wasn't finding anything new among the topics addressed.
They are topics I am very interested in so adding nothing new or interesting to the discussion is a letdown. Maybe if I had read this book closer to when it came out that would not have been the case. I don't get what it is supposed to offer and I did find it annoying and distracting.
For instance, I'm reading along and there is an interesting topic being discussed. Well, I just read that and, silly me, I thought there was something more to be had in reference to the interesting part. Jumping me backwards only made me have to flip back to where I was to continue onward disgruntledly. Feb 11, Ian Lindstrom rated it it was amazing Shelves: Like one of those camping or survival books, but for your mind.
It has lots of great info on different techniques, habits, and resources that help you to live a more effective life. Everything from making tough decisions, managing emotions, concentration, mental math, social situations, health, etc.
This is not one of those hokey think-it-and-you-will-have-it books ahem, The Secret , nor is it motivational. It focuses on the science behind our habits, how they work and how you can change them. A great resource. May 21, Adam rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the book that basically convinced me I wanted to become a neuroscientist.
Not so much the actual content of the book, which is interesting, but not mind blowing; but the realization that of all books I had heard about recently, this was the one that I really wanted.
The fact that it is an O'Reilly book, written in the familiar computer hacks style, only sealed the deal. The perfect mashup for my interests. Jan 07, Dylan rated it liked it. This book has a lot of very cool and interesting tips and facts about our brain capabilities!
For example people live 80 milliseconds in the past because of the amount of time it takes to process things. Also when people read they only read the first and last lteters of a word, did you notice that I spelled letters wrong? View 1 comment.
May 19, Daniel Cornwall rated it liked it. Good insights but at it's heart mostly a set of disconnected essays on the science of the brain and mind.
Well researched, many "try it yourself" examples and a good index. But more a reference text or bathroom reader than something that draws you to read cover to cover. The most surprising "hack" to me was the next to last one in the book "Spread a bad mood around. The examples seemed to bear this out and I should probably try and run down some of the papers.
If you've heard of the "Velten Mood induction procedure", I'd love to hear from you. On the one hand it seems plausible. On the other, if it's so great I'm surprised that more people aren't using it since it's been around since If you're curious about vision, hearing, how we move or where our moods come from, this book may be for you.
Objectively speaking, the book is written in a popular manner but full of further more scientific references for those that want to know more. However, it's just not what I expected it to be.
Even in the "how this functions in life" segments, the focus is on further examples, rather than practical tips. Ne Objectively speaking, the book is written in a popular manner but full of further more scientific references for those that want to know more. Nevertheless, the book is interesting and well-written, and especially well-organized.
Jun 06, Mohamed Abd El-Khalek rated it really liked it. The book has serious articles - I wouldn't call them "hacks" but it's close enough - about various ways the mind works. Since this is an O'Reilly Hacks title, the text occasionally taps into the vocabulary familiar to computer geeks like myself - "Hack Neural noise isn't a bug, it's a feature" - but not always. This book could just as easily find it's way on the Psychology shelf.
Each article also has a list of End Notes that give you further reading on each topic, which was really nic The book has serious articles - I wouldn't call them "hacks" but it's close enough - about various ways the mind works. Each article also has a list of End Notes that give you further reading on each topic, which was really nice. Each "hack" is also cross-referenced very well with the other similar hacks, so you can bounce all over the book reading about various aspects of brain function.
My favorite article discusses the "Hypnagogic State" - the sometimes brief period between wakefulness and sleep I seem to find myself in that state quite a bit - now I have a name for it. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Mar 06, Vesna rated it it was ok. It repeats too many times where is some hack.
These are like some meta tags and I'm not much impressed with it. The things which were actually interesting were poorly explained. I think 3 of 5 stars is maybe even too high rate for this book. I wouldn't recommend it, although I appreciate authors efforts. Plus is it is rich with references, which is probably useful for medicine students or someone.
Jul 25, Nick Hylands-white added it. Not bad. Interesting pieces of psychological research that you can try out on yourself and experience fist hand.
This book served as a bit of a reminder that some areas of psychology are actually real and not just a load of conjecture over the best way to skin a cat and what the skin can tell us about how happy the cat was etc etc.
Probably best dipped into than read cover to cover. Jan 31, matt sakaguchi rated it really liked it. While some of the 'hacks' may not quite serve our daily needs, there are more than enough that justify the price of the book.
Plus there are many ideas to kickstart creativity and problem-solve. Dec 26, Wilte rated it liked it. Doesn't really work as a book to be read in a linear fashion. It is a collection of very well written and funny blog posts with lots of links on how the brain works. All links: Davvero interessante. Spiega alcuni meccanismi del nostro cervello di cui spesso non siamo consapevoli per esempio illusioni ottiche ma anche temi meno noti e fornisce esempi o istruzioni per verificarli.
Jan 04, Hans Gerwitz rated it liked it Shelves: Decent introductory content, but the Hacks format is awkward and contrived.
It shows, and I found myself feeling bad for the authors and worse for myself wading through page after page for the small snippets of knowledge scattered within. Aug 16, lola rated it it was ok. I guess I thought this would be more practical? Some people who aren't me or my friends. Jul 28, Angela rated it liked it. This book was pretty good, but I think I was expecting a little more out of it - I've taken a lot of psychology classes, and this kind of covers a lot of what is covered in beginner psychology classes, unfortunately, but otherwise, it is laid out well and is a good read.
Jan 23, Beckyj rated it liked it. Tons of cool, "gee whiz" facts about how the brain works. Well written for the lay-audience.
I don't really recommend it for reading straight through even the authors don't expect you to but it's fun to flip through and read about whatever strikes your fancy. Jul 07, Eric rated it liked it. It was fun to learn to count binary with my hands.
The thing with books like these is that I don't need everything all the time and when I might need it I won't know what I'm looking for so I give it 3 stars. It doesn't translate to a solid skill set. Jun 03, Ninja Pigeon rated it really liked it.
If you have ever had one of those days where you came up with a great retort 5 minutes after an embarrassing moment, and couldn't figure out why it took you that long, this book is for you. It's the study of the brain biology behind our mental functions: Want to know more? Mind Hacks is a collection of probes into the moment-by-moment works of the brain.
Using cognitive neuroscience, these experiments, tricks, and tips related to vision, motor skills, attention, cognition, subliminal perception, and more throw light on how the human brain works. Each hack examines specific operations of the brain. By seeing how the brain responds, we pick up clues about the architecture and design of the brain, learning a little bit more about how the brain is put together.
Mind Hacks begins your exploration of the mind with a look inside the brain itself, using hacks such as "Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: Napisz do nas: Szukaj Zamknij Szukaj. Mind Hacks.
