Unpersuadables: Adventures with the Enemies of Science
Unpersuadables: Adventures with the Enemies of Science | Will Storr
3 posts | 7 read | 14 to read
Using a unique mix of highly personal memoir, investigative journalism, and the latest research from neuroscience and experimental psychology, Storr reveals how the stories we tell ourselves about the world invisibly shape our beliefs, and how the neurological hero maker inside us all can so easily lead to self-deception, toxic partisanship and science denial.

Another great idea by #audible on Instagram!!! Im a Libra but I don‘t agree 🤦🏻‍♂️😂😂😂 what are you and what would you want to be?

Kaila-ann Virgo and I kinda dig it 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6mo
jenniferw88 Taurus & happy with Classics! Both my Mum (Aquarius) & Dad (Libra) are wrong though, especially Dad as he dislikes most types of poetry (it has to rhyme for him to like it)! 6mo
Butterflyamore I‘m cancer. I do like memoirs! 6mo

Sweetkokoro I‘m a Sagittarius and I so do not agree, mystery is so boring to me haha. Im 6mo
quirkthenerd I‘m a Pisces, we emotional beings can use all the help we can get 😅 6mo
La_Cori I'm Taurus, and Classics are my go-to for audiobooks! 😊 6mo
cobwebmoth Aries here. Adventure is okay, but I'd prefer Fantasy or Mystery. 6mo
Marmie7 Gemini- 💖sci-fi! 6mo
kamoorephoto True - memoirs work for me as audiobooks, as they tend to be narrated by the author... 6mo
ShyBookOwl Leo 🦁.. fantasy is my favourite genre, but when it comes to audiobooks, lately, I tend to prefer memoirs 6mo
sprainedbrain I‘m an Aries, but should apparently be Virgo. 🤔 6mo
Stephuhhnieee Taurus ♉️ And I think I‘m ok with Classics 😂 Sci-fi or non-fiction would be nice too, though. 6mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 🐂♉ I'm cool with classics, adventure would be good too. 6mo
AlaMich I‘m a Libra too, but romantic poetry is not my jam. I am not a fan of sap. Almost anything on that list would be preferable. (edited) 6mo
Suet624 Cancer. I guess they‘re correct about memoirs in audiobooks. Non-fiction and memoirs are really the only ones I enjoy on audio. I space out when listening to fiction. 6mo
JoScho I am a Gemini and I almost never read sci-fi 👯 6mo
CouronneDhiver I got sci-fi too, but I‘m more into historical fiction @JoScho 6mo
britt_brooke Interesting! I‘m a Scorpio and definitely am NOT into romance thrillers, though. Like @Suet624 I listen to mostly nonfiction; same reason. 6mo
ashley_o13 I'm a cancer and I never read memoirs, I'm more a Scorpio or Sagittarius but that makes sense to me because I feel like they fit my personality more anyway when I look at horoscopes 🤷🏻‍♀️ 6mo
therealdealbeall Capricorn seems accurate haha. 🐐 6mo

I don't read a lot of non-fiction, but I read this one last summer and still think about it all the time. It changed the way I view pretty much everything. A brilliant, fascinating and entertaining book about the nature of knowledge, belief and identity.

jeff This sounds incredible. Thanks for the rec! 3y
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled This sounds like it answers a lot of my questions. Thanks! Going to get this one! 3y
