your_brain_the_missing_manual.gifJust came across this announcement from O’Reilly Media for a book I imagine will be of interest to quite a few GTDtimes readers: Your Brain: the Missing Manual.

From O’Reilly’s dexcription of the book:

Description
Your Brain: The Missing Manual is a practical look at how to get the most out of your brain — not just how the brain works, but how you can use it more effectively. What makes this book different than the average self-help guide is that it’s grounded in current neuroscience. You get a quick tour of several aspects of the brain, complete with useful advice you can apply to everyday situations.

  1. Hi,

    A great book too is the Pragmatic Thinking and Learning: Refactor Your “Wetware”, from our beloved Pragmatic Programmers (http://pragprog.com/titles/ahptl/pragmatic-thinking-and-learning).
    Even if the book is in beta currently (meaning unfinished, but you get updates as soon as theyr are out), it’s terrific.

    Good recommendation. I also like the O’Reilly book called “Mind Hacks.”

  3. From the table os contents I would guess this title is a bit superficial if compared with Mind Hacks and Mind Performance Hacks, both also from O’Reilly – I also strongly recommend http://www.mindhacks.com blog
