What the Core Should Teach

Written by

As spring internships start, we here at Bwog have realized that knowing exactly where Odysseus wentthe intricacies of a Hobbesian state of nature, and the proxies involved in fMRIs aren’t very useful in a real workplace.

    My workplace is an fmri research lab, so it's pretty darn useful for some people. Different type of intro to scanning needed, though.

      Surpise yourself by reading a book written by a buddy of the Core's architect, Nicholas Murray Butler, who tried to summarize the core into one little book for the masses. Really surprise yourself when you realize it is Dale Carnegies "How to Win Friends and Influence People". I am not kidding you!
