And yet it works. He doesn’t want us to take ourselves (or fMRIs, for that matter) too seriously yet he is dead serious about his topic. For all his dismissiveness, he really does want us to be our best selves and this book is his well-researched attempt to get us there. My favorite chapters were on Art & Science and Innovation & Discovery. The latter should be required reading for managers everywhere.
Informative, inspiring, and vivid (in Stephens’ imagination, the triune brain -- brainstem, limbic system, prefrontal cortex -- becomes Frog, Puppy, and Feynman), “TLBSTRBL” is a user’s guide that doesn’t stint on the hard science yet maintains a playful tone throughout.
In summary, and borrowing from Stephens’ irreverent style:
It’s your brain, dude: RTFM.
Ransom uses an approachable, conversational style. He is self-deprecating and doesn't talk down to his reader. Also, he clearly likes beer...
A surprisingly easy read for such a deep subject. Chapters and overall length are quite manageable for even a casual reader.
I look forward to reading his other non-fiction and fiction works.
