Review of "Visual Intelligence"
[ Audio Version ] When I was in the store eyeing up On Intelligence , I also noticed an interesting looking book titled Visual Intelligence , by Donald D. Hoffman , that I was pretty sure I'd have to get back to. I finally bought it a few days ago. Owning to the circumstances of a bit of recent travel, I found I have had a bunch of time to read it. I'm a slow reader, but my inner geek found this book so gripping that I finished this roughly 200 page book off in two days. (I suppose if it had more words and fewer of the pretty pictures, it might have taken a few more days and been less gripping.) Given that I found Visual Intelligence a very cool book, I thought it worth writing a review. I'll begin by saying it's incredibly well written and that most of it should be easily reachable by the casual reader. It lends many cool insights into the curious nature of human vision and, by implication, all the other senses. My read of On Intelligence and its implications
