Creativity and Problem-Solving - brainstorming tips and thinking not outside the box, but about the box - in other words, find the assumptions that limit your ideas so you can break through them- Understanding Other People's Brains - the battle of the sexes and babies developing brainsLearn about the built-in circuitry that makes office politics seem like a life-or-death struggle, causes you to toss important facts out of your memory if they're not emotionally charged, and encourages you to eat huge amounts of high-calorie snacks.With "Your Brain: The Missing Manual", you'll discover that, sometimes, you can learn to compensate for your brain or work around its limitations - or at least to accept its eccentricities.
