Jonah Lehrer

Jonah Lehrer - Contributing Editor, Wired and National Radio’s Radio Lab; Author of Imagine: How Creativity Works

Jonah Lehrer -- hailed as "an important new thinker" by The Los Angeles Times -- is the author of Proust Was a Neuroscientist and the instant bestseller, How We Decide. Captivating, accessible, and never dull, he talks about how we make decisions -- and how we can make better decisions. "Lehrer ingeniously weaves neuroscience, sports, war, psychology, and politics into a fascinating tale of human decision making," says Dan Ariely (Predictably Irrational). "He makes us much wiser." His latest book is Imagine: How Creativity Works.

Lehrer has been called "something of a popular science prodigy," by The New York Times, a man of "considerable talents." A graduate of Columbia University with a degree in neuroscience, Jonah Lehrer studied at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar where he received his Masters Degree in 20th century literature and philosophy. Lehrer is a contributing editor at Wired Magazine and National Public Radio's Radio Lab. He has also written for The New Yorker, Nature, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.
