Two book I wanted to point out were truely fascinating journeys inside your mind are:


On Intelligence

By: Jeff Hawkins and Sandra Blakeslee

The brain is not a computer, but a memory system that stores experiences in a way that reflects the true structure of the world, remembering sequences of events and their nested relationships and making predictions based on those memories. It is this memory-prediction system that forms the basis of intelligence, perception, creativity, and even consciousness.

AND


Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships
By: Daniel Goleman

Daniel Goleman explores an emerging science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. Its most amazing discovery: we are “wired to connect”, designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a “neural ballet” that connects us, brain to brain, with those around us.
