Last weekend of summer. I plan to have my reviews of The Invisible Gorilla and The Lost History of Christianity up very soon. I recommend both heartily! Next in the stack: Stanislas Dehaene’s Reading in the Brain. A question was asked about the focus on extremes when it came to perceptions of the genetic influence on an outcome. The table below has mean values, 1-21, 1 = 100% genes, 21 = 0%, so 11 = 50%.
