"The self–help genre of performance–enhancing books is an increasingly crowded space. Heavyweight academic–style titles compete with flimsy motivational books that stretch thin ideas well beyond the space they deserve. Neil Pavitt’s book Brainhack bridges this divide. It’s relatively thin and tight editing means it moves along at a cracking pace with tons of good ideas on how to improve your cognitive abilities." (The Irish Times, March 2016)
"A fun, engaging read that you′ll love telling your friends and family about" (Woman′s Way, March 2016)
"Easy to read and highly informative, there′s plenty of food for thought here" (PQ Magazine, May 2016)
"The user′s guide your brain never came with."
―Ian Gilbert, Founder of Independent Thinking
"A practical primer in the art of problem–solving. In 45 instructive ′brainhacks′, Pavitt reveals how every one of us can make more of our brains."
– Patrick Collister, Creative Director, The Zoo – Google EMEA
"Very nicely done. A masterful storyteller."
