We’d like to think that the choices we make are the product of deliberate, conscious reasoning. But Leonard Mlodinow says that’s not the whole story. In his new book, “Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior,” Mlodinow discusses the many hidden quirks of the human brain that shape our decisions and understanding of the world.
Mlodinow’s other books include “Feynman’s Rainbow,” “The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives” and “Grand Design,” co-authored with Stephen Hawking.
