Summary
In this mind-bending book, award-winning neuroscientist Henning Beck explains why perfectionism is pointless and argues that mistakes, missteps and flaws are the keys to success. Remember that time you messed up simple maths or forgot the name of your favourite song? What if someone told you that our brain freezes are actually secret weapons, proof of our superiority to computers and AI? In Scatterbrain, we learn that boredom awakens the muse, distractions spark creativity and misjudging time creates valuable memories, among the many other benefits of our faulty minds. Combining cutting-edge science with brain-boosting advice and riveting real-life stories, Henning Beck takes us on a fascinating adventure through human memory (one that we'll all remember differently!)
