あらすじ・解説

With the lucid verve and solid scientific grounding of an Oliver Sacks or Malcolm Gladwell, Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler guides listeners on a fascinating tour of the bedrock of our existence - the way our senses perceive everything and everyone in the world around us.

Why does one person see Jesus in a shower curtain, get a "bad feeling" about someone they've just met, or hear a conversation so differently than the other person? Boxer Wachler describes some of the mysterious medical conditions that cause non-psychiatric hallucinations and neurological mix-ups, then focuses on how we all receive and interpret the messages of our senses. Practical as well as provocative, Perceptual Intelligence also offers listeners ways to improve their PI, "reality check" their perceptions, and make desired changes in their lives.

Outstanding

From the very beginning, this book had my attention. I very much enjoyed the authors voice and sense of humor. Laughing out loud was an unexpected experience while reading a book like this.
The stories of PI helped me to understand how I am perceiving the world around me. I saw clearly how I could sometimes have a high PI while in other situations, my PI could drop substantially.
After reading this, I realize that I can improve my PI when needed which can improve my life greatly.
This was a fantastic book and I look forward to the authors next book

Disappointing

I’m not sure how this book received reviews about being insightful, thought provoking, or even interesting.

I can’t think of one thing that was novel or useful. Did you know fandom sometimes goes too far? Did you realize dogmatic ideology can make you blind to alternative viewpoints? Well, they do and it can. But this book will not discuss the evolutionary causes for this behavior nor the neurological bases nor even how to avoid the trappings. But it will often list out celebrities that have had eye appointments with the author.

Don’t waste that precious monthly credit on this.

psychology

a self help book more than it is about neuroscience, which is what I was seeking

Interesting subject

I didn't not usually choose a book before reading on the author, and in this case the title grabbed me. I guess I had low Perceptual Intelligence in this case.

Well written book, but was lacking in scientific rigour if it was suppose to be a scientific book. The author is not well known and probably not a specialist in this subject.

It was however quite engaging and funny, but read mostly as a self help book, something I don't subscribe to.
