Brain Blunders

We defy common sense and good judgment on a daily basis. Learn to tame your stupid brain.


We reason poorly, think incorrectly, and overlook the truth every single day. We can't be perfect, but at least we can be a little less wrong from time to time.


Cure your mental glitches, blind spots, and errors in reasoning and logic.


Brain Blunders is a book that will get you to think about how you think. You are not so smart; in fact, humans are not so smart! This book is equal parts entertainment, neuroscience textbook, and field guide to better living. Written in an easy and humorous manner, discover the origins of the irrationalities you see all around you.
Take a deep look into the roots of illogical and rash decisions — how they form, and how they persist in our lives. Get your fill of understanding human psychology and the peculiar choices we all make from time to time. We all recognize our big blunders, but it’s the subconscious ones that define us.


Develop clarity of thought and see the patterns of human error.


Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a bestselling author. He has worked with dozens of individuals to unlock their potential and path towards success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.


Discover your brain’s subtle tricks and everyday illusions.


•Why our concept of free will is illusory at best.
The roots of superstitious and magical thinking.
•How advertisers are so effective at emptying our wallets.
How our memories are both incredible and horrific at the same time.
•Why we are pretty sure we’re above average in things we’re terrible at.
The real reason that we see animals in clouds and faces in toast.
