About the Book

Psychologist Nicky Hayes explores the ingenious and sometimes unhelpful ways our minds process the world around us in this comprehensive and accessible guide to the science of thinking.

The science of how we think is fundamental to understanding why we are who we are, and why we do what we do. What goes on inside your head when you’re processing information – thinking, storing or accessing a memory, paying attention, processing language, being creative, problem-solving and learning – dictates how we interact with each other, what motivates and discourages us and the decisions we make every day.

Including chapters on attribution, the problem with bias, how we form beliefs, ways of remembering, and conscious and unconscious thinking, What Are You Thinking? examines the science behind how we think, revealing the complex and fascinating web of processes that rule the way we view the world.
