Cognitive Injection: A reading list

Context: Tuesday, February 25th, I’m presenting “Cognitive Injection: Reprogramming the Situation-Oriented Human OS” at RSAC in Moscone West, Room 3005 at 4 pm (Pacific). My slides are here.

I’ve formed my opinion about how the human brain works with the assistance of some great contributors. Some of them are humans I hang out with, but many of them are authors and researchers; in the interest of helping others come to the same, or better, understanding, here’s a short reading list:
  • Daniel Kahneman; Thinking, Fast and Slow
  • James Reason; Human Error
  • Atul Gawande; The Checklist Manifesto
  • Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons; The Invisible Gorilla
  • Sam Peltzman,;“The Effects of Automobile Safety Regulation”, Journal of Political Economy, 1975. (see also: The Peltzman Effect)
  • Tom Vanderbilt; Traffic
