    Fifty years ago, neuroscientists thought that a mature brain was fixed like a fly in amber, unable to change. Today, we know that our brains and nervous systems change throughout our lifetimes.

In this book, Moheb Costandi offers a concise and engaging overview of neuroplasticity for the general listener, describing how our brains change continuously in response to our actions and experiences. Costandi discusses key experimental findings, and describes how our thinking about the brain has...read more

  • Bill Fisher

    Based on Bill Fisher's master-class seminars-featured at The World Bank, The University of California, and Draper University-this book offers the kind of capital-raising street smarts that most entrepreneurs never tap into until it is too late. Fisher organizes the capital-raising process into six clear steps, and then breaks through the myths to reveal the triggers for success. For example, entrepreneurs are told that great business ideas get funded. Not true-great business stories get funded, and those stories all have a similar construction and shape, which can be learned. And yes, you need investors, but investors come with their own personality issues. You need the right match for...read more
