Harvard Book Store welcomes cognitive neuroscientist TALI SHAROT—founder and director of the Affective Brain Lab at University College London—and Harvard Law School’s CASS R. SUNSTEIN for a discussion of Sharot’s latest book, The Influential Mind: What the Brain Reveals About Our Power to Change Others.
In The Influential Mind, neuroscientist TALI SHAROT takes us on a thrilling exploration of the nature of influence. We all have a duty to affect others―from the classroom to the boardroom to social media. But how skilled are we at this role, and can we become better? It turns out that many of our instincts are ineffective, because they are incompatible with how people’s minds operate. SHAROT shows us how to avoid these pitfalls, and how an attempt to change beliefs and actions is successful when it is well-matched with the core elements that govern the human brain.

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
