With rapid technological innovation leading the way, today’s world is transforming itself at an extraordinary and unprecedented pace. We are confronted every day with new challenges as jobs become more multifaceted, information streams multiply, and myriad devices place increasing demands on our attention. Leonard Mlodinow (The Drunkard’s Walk, Subliminal) is a theoretical physicist and collaborator of both Deepak Chopra and Stephen Hawking. He joins us to share insight from his book Elastic: Unlocking Your Brain's Ability to Embrace Change, which draws on cutting-edge research in neuroscience and psychology to illuminate ways in which the human brain is uniquely engineered to adapt. Mlodinow takes the stage for a look at the mechanics of our own minds as we navigate the rapidly shifting landscapes around us. A book signing will follow the event.
Mlodinow never fails to make science both accessible and entertaining. — Stephen Hawking, author of A Brief History of Time
