Subliminal: The Revolution of the New Unconscious and What it Teaches Us about Ourselves by Leonard Mlodinow
The human mind is a bizarre place, without a map. This text is an entertaining, intruiging map into how we think where we go, how we reach the conclusions we have, and how our brains often create dynamic shortcuts and ways of thinking that fool us and remove options from the table. Instead of considering all the outcomes, we assume that some are infeasable, and reduce our world. It is well written, cohesive, fun, and practical for the reader to explore their own mind, allowing us to work through and realise for ourselves, whilst also enlighting. Armed with a sense of playful humour, it also challenges and expands how we see the world. I could wax lyrical for ages about it, but the key thing is that this is an enjoyable, bright text that makes me see the world slightly differently and thus, is recommended.
