Physical Intelligence
Physical Intelligence: The Science of How the Body and the Mind Guide Each Other Through Life | Scott Grafton
3 posts | 1 reading | 4 to read
Elegantly written and deeply grounded in personal experienceworks by Oliver Sacks come to mindPhysical Intelligence gives us a clear, illuminating examination of the intricate, mutually responsive relationship between the mind and the body as they engage (or dont engage) in all manner of physical action. Ever wonder why you dont walk into walls or off cliffs? How you decide if you can drive through a snowstorm? How high you are willing to climb up a ladder to change a lightbulb? Through the prisms of behavioral neurology and cognitive neuroscience, Scott Grafton brilliantly accounts for the design and workings of the action-oriented brain in synchronicity with the body in the natural world, and he shows how physical intelligence is inherent in all of usand always in problem-solving mode. Drawing on insights gleaned from discoveries by engineers who have learned to emulate the sophisticated solutions Mother Nature has created for managing complex behavior, Grafton also demonstrates the relevance of physical intelligence with examples that each of us might facewhether the situation is mundane, exceptional, extreme, or compromised.

#BigJuneReadathon
My goal is to read 8 physical books off my TBR & 1 preordered. SO MANY goodies piling up on my TBR shelf &I have been reading a ton, but mostly ebooks (it‘s fine, but look at THESE). Only 3 of 12 (soon to be 13) books finished this month were physical (4 audiobooks, 5 ebooks - not including A Touch Of Darkness that will be finished today). So many good hard copies: seasonal fears, Hate U Give, Kay Scarpetta, Olga Dies Dreaming-

Clwojick Yessss! I‘m hoping to read Seasonal Fears this month too! 🌼 Good Luck!! 1mo
5feet.of.fury @Clwojick yessss Seanan is so good! Thanks for hosting! 1mo
Clwojick I know! She‘s definitely a favourite of mine. I devour all of her books, which is saying a lot since I barely ever get into Sci-fi/Fantasy! 🖤 1mo
