This is a good introduction to the basics of learning how to become more focused, make better decisions, and generate improved outcomes. The book provides a solid foundation with practical tips and clearly explained techniques for building a stronger mind.
I do have two qualms however. First, 30% of the book is the appendix, which consists mostly of footnote references and citations. This made the book feel less than worthy of its price. Second, numerous grammatical errors starting popping up in the last third of the core content, almost as if an editor had stopped reading two-thirds of the way through, or the last third was rushed and unedited.
Overall though, it is an easy-to-read book and worth a read for those interested in improving one’s mental capabilities.
I found myself earmarking pages and rereading sections several times as the information in this book is so novel and useful. It's also extremely actionable, so I felt like I could immediately start putting small changes to my habits and thinking patterns to work.
If you are a curious mind who tries to understand and maximize your potential, Hard Wired is a must read. At a minimum you will walk away with a newfound understanding of your mental processes. But almost certainly you will also find multiple ways to utilize that information to improve your creativity, acuity and habits as well.
