THE EXTENDED MIND The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain

by | Read by Annie Murphy Paul

Personal Growth • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Though its message is decidedly philosophical, this audiobook offers a broad selection of neurological and behavioral studies to show how mental processing is not isolated to the confines of the skull. The author argues that our brains work best when the thinking we do is coordinated with the wisdom of our physical bodies, the spaces we live and work in, and the influence of others--both past experts and current collaborators. The author's vocal quality and delivery style are not ideal for an audiobook with so many fascinating insights and such useful guidance. But she reads with unfailing fidelity, so nothing gets lost. With writing and reasoning that are always accessible, she describes the many ways we can extend our minds and shows how staying open to these external influences can improve our thinking and productivity.
