Drunk Tank Pink: 01/28/17
Drunk Tank Pink by Adam Alter is collection of examples on how psychology goes into our understanding of our environment. Before reading the book I had hoped most of the book would be about the intersection of architecture and psychology but sadly, only the title seems to have been the example.
The rest of the book is basically a laundry list of pop-psychology. There's very little in the way of citation and most of the stuff in here has been used as filler on morning news shows or similar. Basically there is nothing earth shattering here, just a lot of rehashed ideas on how the brain works.
But the book is primarily adult cis-het-white-middle class-male centered. So if you fit into that category, then maybe this book is amazing. For everyone else, it's a book you can pass on.
