Dr. Daniel J. Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, where he also helped to establish the Mindful Awareness Research Center. He also heads up the Mindsight Institute, an educational center devoted to promoting insight, compassion, and empathy in individuals, families, institutions, and communities. Dr. Siegel’s books include three New York Times bestsellers: Brainstorm, and, with Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D, The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline. As a lecturer, he’s spoken before King of Thailand, Pope John Paul II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, at Google University, and TEDx.
“His insights into the mind as an embodied and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information in the ecosystem of life have had a deep impact on my own understanding of mind and life and have impacted the way I practice and understand the healing process.” -Deepak Chopra, MD
What we mean by the term “mind” has traditionally been the province of philosophers, but what might neuroscience teach us about it? How does the mind differ from consciousness? And how do we know who we really are? In Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human, Dr. Siegel explores the nature of the who, how, what, why, and when of your mind—of your self—from the perspective of neuroscience. Mind is the essence of our true nature, our deepest sense of being alive, here, right now, in this moment. How science explains this most perplexing of topics is truly one of the most exciting journeys into knowledge we can take.

Levitin is about as knowledgeable a guide to neuroscience as one might hope for. –The New York Times Book Review
Misinformation is a bigger problem than ever before as we’re bombarded with distortions, pseudo-facts and jibber-jabber, all masquerading as the truth. It’s nothing new—especially when it comes to politicians— but we’ve created more human-made information in the last five years than in all of human history before then. And right along with it has come a proliferation of errors, lies, and manipulations that cross social and educational classes like never before. How do we separate the wheat from the digital chaff?
Levitin’s new book, A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age is an indispensable and funny primer on how to recognize misleading announcements, graphs, and written reports, and how to think critically about the stories and statistics we encounter on a daily basis.
