Biographical note:


Barbara Oakley is a professor of engineering at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. She has received many awards for her teaching, including the coveted National Science Foundation New Century Scholar Award.
 

Main description:

At a time when two-thirds of American high school students are not proficient in math, this book comes to the rescue of math-phobes of all ages.

Whether you are a college student struggling to fulfill a math requirement or a professional in a field requiring high-level analytic skills, A Mind for Numbers is geared toward anyone who has ever been intimidated by math. 

Barbara Oakley, a successful engineering professor who once flunked her way through high school math and science classes, understands this audience well. Offering insights in neuroscience and cognitive psychology, Dr. Oakley teaches us how to fully utilize the right side of the brain (for creative, big-picture thinking), as well as the analytical left side (for problem solving). She addresses common stumbling blocks to approaching math and science, and shows us how to use our personal learning style to its fullest advantage.

Review quote:

Praise for Evil Genes:

“A fascinating scientific and personal exploration of the roots of evil, filled with human insight and telling detail.” —Steven Pinker, author The Better Angels of Our Nature and How the Mind Works

Praise for Cold-Blooded Kindness:

"Riveting and disturbing…. Barbara Oakley is to be commended upon looking so hard, and so closely, at the motives, in some, that underlie acts of 'kindness' and 'altruism'—suggesting that things are not always as they appear, and the phrase 'killed with kindness' springs from the absolute bedrock of folk wisdom." —Joyce Carol Oates, National Book Award winner

Praise for Pathological Altruism:

"What a wonderful book! This is one of the few books in evolutionary biology I've read in the past ten years that taught me something completely new." —Edward O.  Wilson, Pulitzer Prize Winner and Pellegrino University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University

"This unique volume manages the impressive feat of pulling together the best research from psychology, genetics, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and law on well-meaning but ultimately harmful forms of self-sacrifice. It will forever change the way you look at altruism." —Sharon Begley, Science Editor, Newsweek, and author of Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain
