12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School — John Medina

This book is about how your brain work. It includes a DVD which shows abstracts of all the chapters. The book is an easy read and written for the masses. So if you haven’t studied biology it is clear and understandable. It talks about learning environments, memory, sensory and babies.

The rules of baby management are something very funny:

If I want it, it’s mine.
If I give it to you and change my mind later, it’s mine.
If I can take it away from you, it’s mine.
If we are building something together, all the pieces are mine.
If it looks like mine, it’s mine
If it’s mine, it will never belong to anybody else, no matter what.
If it is yours, it is mine.

And yes, the female brains are wired differently then the male brains…

One more thing, if you’re interested in this subject, the talk Stroke of insight of researcher Jill Bolte-Taylor is extraordinary.
