Galley Giveaway: John Brockman's THIS WILL MAKE YOU SMARTER

ALL OF OUR GALLEYS HAVE BEEN GIVEN AWAY! Please visit us again for new giveaways.
John Brockman posed the following question to 150 of the worlds brightest and influential minds: "What scientific concept would improve everybody's cognitive toolkit?" The result of their answers is This Will Make You Smarter: New Scientific Concepts to Improve Your Thinking. Brockman, publisher of Edge.org, collects contributions from some of the leading experts including:
  • Steven Pinker on positive-sum games
  • Nassim Nicolas Taleb on anti-fragility
  • and Richard Dawkins on the double-blind control experiment
While this thought provoking collection doesn't go on sale until February 2012, 5 educators can get an early look right now, and see if it could be helpful to their students!
