As I crossed my 46th birthday this year, I somehow felt as if my mental capabilities were slowly slipping away.
While I am certainly far from being reduced to a blabbering idiot, my mind isn’t quite the same as before. Which was why I was especially excited when I picked up a copy of Keep Your Brain Alive by Lawrence C Katz and Manning Rubin.
The human mind is one of the most brilliant creations on Earth. There isn’t a computer invented by man that can rival what happens between his ears.
Unfortunately, our minds are vulnerable to various quirks and idiosyncrasies which makes us prone to errors. Don’t believe me? Just look at the examples highlighted by Dan Ariely in Predictably Irrational.
