Much weaker than the previous effort (which I enjoyed tremendously), this work just falls short. The writing is very uneven across many of the hacks, there are several areas where pseudoscience and inconclusive evidence is presented as fact and a mind-numbing level of repetition that seems reinforced by the structure used for the hacks. I had high hopes for this work (it was on my wish list for months prior to publication), but I'm afraid it just didn't deliver on those expectations.

Read this quickly and enjoyed it. One of the many books I'm going through for research purposes for my next book. It has lots of good suggestions for ways to keep learning as a grown up person out of school. Some of the "tricks" were novel and exciting but it is a mixed bag. Of course, the tricks that appealed to me might be quite different than those that appeal to someone else.
As with many self help books, "Mindhacker" is a bold attempt to deliver in one text the material a person needs to change their lives. How often do you hear of a self help book claiming to enable the reader to move to the next level of mental capability? Mindhacker was an ordinary read. Although the book did have some good ideas, the ideas alone do not make a cohesive body of work.
A neat little collection of thought experiments, reminders, and mind games to play to improve your memory, understanding of basic mathematics, logic, etc. Live a more mindful existence.

Your results may vary, though. I was surprised to discover that I've already done most of these. It's still a nice book to have around and dip into when you feel inspired enough.

A great read full of idea on how to think differently. You definitely won't use all 60 hacks, but I bet at least one of them will end up striking a chord. Since it is broken into 60 discrete chunks it is the perfect book for reading on your phone in a stolen moments.
Very thought provoking and inspiring read. Lots of straight forward ideas to get your behaviors to guide your mind- like the idea of redirecting mental agility for things that matter, as opposed to the mundane

Read a draft of this book. The guy who wrote the hacks about SRS and Dual N-Back is brilliant ;)
This book arrived yesterday and I have started dipping in and exploring.
good read, good ideas, read it at several intervals and not completely.

Lots of interesting ideas most of which i'm sure I'll never use.
