Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know–such as the brain’s need for physical activity to work at its best.

How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget–and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

In Brain Rules, molecular biologist Dr. John Medina shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule–what scientists know for sure about how our brains work–and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives.

Medina’s fascinating stories and sense of humor breathe life into brain science. You’ll learn why Michael Jordan was no good at baseball. You’ll peer over a surgeon’s shoulder as he finds, to his surprise, that we have a Jennifer Aniston neuron. You’ll meet a boy who has an amazing memory for music but can’t tie his own shoes.

You will discover how:
– Every brain is wired differently
– Exercise improves cognition
– We are designed to never stop learning and exploring
– Memories are volatile
– Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn
– Vision trumps all of the other senses
– Stress changes the way we learn

In the end, you’ll understand how your brain really works–and how to get the most out of it.

  1. A great overview of both findings in neuroscience as well as practical ways to apply them in everyday life John splits the book up into twelve different sections, each with findings in neuroscience, as well as how to apply those findings practically. These sections are Survival: How our brain is a product of our evolution, and some traits it has adopted as a result Exercise: How exercise improves our cognitive abilities and staves off dementia Sleep: What the brain does during sleep, how people are biologically predisposed to various sleep patterns, and how to use naps to…

  2. Brilliant writing with one caveat “Brain Rules” is a fun book exploring the intricacies of the brain – what makes it tick, the way we process information and how it all links back to our ancestors surviving on the plains. John Medina has 12 “rules” of the brain, which he explains along with providing perhaps helpful tips to use the brain more fully.I never really realized how much I liked psychology until I started to read books like this. I didn’t realize psychology looked so much into how weird our…

  3. As other people say, this book is very easy and even fun to read. Despite its almost novel-like style, the book does not compromise in quality and depth of information it gives.The book provides 12 Brain Rules that range from the brain’s need for exercise to the brain’s tendency to get pictures better than words. The author often gives comprehensive explanations for why the rules are the way they are, explaining the brain’s anatomy and/or evolutionary changes. Combined with the…
