6 Things I Learned from the Book "This Will Make You Smarter"

[ Tue. Jan. 6. 2015 ]

I read the book This Will Make You Smarter. 

It's an amazing compilation of short essays written by some of the world's most talented scientists, authors, and businessmen, written in a way anyone can understand.

The contributors were asked, "What scientific concept would improve everybody's cognitive toolkit?"

Let me tell you, the book lives up to its title. 

Here are six passages I found especially smart. 

  1. Science is never certain...[more]
  2. Learn from as many disciplines as you can...[more]
  3. Happiness is complicated...[more]
  4. You're nothing special...[more]
  5. But everyone thinks they are...[more]
  6. You can never be too open-minded...[more]
 
Go buy the book here. It's wonderful.
