featuring
The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us
By Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons

Read this book and join us for a special evening with co-author Christopher Chabris, Associate Professor of Psychology and Co-director of the Neuroscience Program at Union College. We’ll be discussing some of the fascinating research findings detailed in the book, with a focus on clinical implications and applications.  

Chabris and Simon’s experiments have become classics, and their influence extends well beyond psychology, with implications for our understanding of consciousness and rationality”  - Steven Pinker, author of How the Mind Works.
 
A riveting romp across the landscape of our psychological misperceptions…If any work of social science could be a page-turner, this is it.” -  Nicholas A. Christakis, Professor, Harvard Medical School.
