Scatterbrain
How the mind's mistakes make humans creative, innovative and successful
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 rivetting real-life stories, Henning Beck takes us on a fascinating adventure through human memory (one that we'll all remember differently!). 'The brain is a messy, faulty wonder, and if we could all agree that perfection is not the mind's ultimate goal, we would be much better off. Henning Beck shows us how to appreciate our imperfect brains - and is fine with readers straying from the page from time to time!' - Ylva Østby, author of Diving for Seahorses
