If you’ve landed on this page, it’s probably because you’re a thinker, a reader, and a do-er who cares about making the world a better place. We do too. That’s why we’re proud to introduce the Lavin Book Club: an online community for people who never want to stop learning, powered by ideas that change the world.
Last month, we invited Stanford neuroscientist David Eagleman for a live Q&A to celebrate the launch of his most recent book Livewired. For those of you who missed it (or those of you who wanted more!) we’re happy to announce that Livewired will also be our first book club pick for the month of October.
About the book: “The magic of the brain is not found in the parts it’s made of but in the way those parts unceasingly reweave themselves in an electric, living fabric.” — In Livewired, Eagleman tells the story of how our brains constantly adapt to the world around us, and answers some pretty mind-blowing questions along the way: from the surprising reason we dream at night, to the likelihood that we might some day control a robot with our thoughts.
About the Author: David Eagleman is not only one of the most influential neuroscientists alive today—he’s also one of our generation’s best scientific teachers, demystifying concepts from sensory substitution and time perception, to brain plasticity. Dubbed “the kind of guy who really does make being a neuroscientist look like fun” by the New York Times, Eagleman has served as an advisor on HBO’s Westworld, hosted the Netflix documentary The Creative Brain, and written several New York Times bestselling books.
