book review: Brain Rules

After reading a lot of self development and business books, I was looking for something that was more of a light read. This came in the form of “Brain Rules” by John Medina. The book details into the scientific reasons of how and why the brain works the way it does. I’m pretty into science, but there are many things in that area that I just can’t wrap my head around. John does a fantastic job of making this complex scientific information easy to understand. One of the most interesting facts for me from this book was the fact that we can get hungry from thinking! Our brain uses up more energy than our quad muscles. There are tonnes of these little fun facts throughout the book. If you’re into how the brain works in any way, I highly recommend this book.
