A Mind of Its Own: How Your Brain Distorts and Deceives (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 2,542

Exposing the mind\'s deceptions and exploring how the mind defends and glorifies the ego, Dr. Fine illustrates the brain\'s tendency to self-delusion, whether it be hindsight bias, wishful thinking, unrealistic optimism, or moral excuse-making.

A delightfully unsparing look into what your brain is doing behind your back.
In recent years, we\'ve heard a lot about the extraordinary workings of our hundred-billion-celled brain: its amazing capacities to regulate all sensation, perception, thinking, and feeling; the power to shape all experience and define our identity. Indeed, the brain\'s power is being confirmed every day in new studies and research. But there is a brain we don\'t generally hear about, a brain we might not want to hear about...the \"prima donna within.\"
Exposing the mind\'s deceptions and exploring how the mind defends and glorifies the ego, Dr. Cordelia Fine illustrates the brain\'s tendency to self-delusion. Whether it be hindsight bias, wishful thinking, unrealistic optimism, or moral excuse-making, each of us has a slew of inborn mind-bugs and ordinary prejudices that prevent us from seeing the truth about the world and ourselves. With fascinating studies to support her arguments, Dr. Fine takes us on an insightful, rip-roaringly funny tour through the brain you never knew you had.
