Books for Curiosity

Cover of Why by Mario Livio

A great book about the science of curiosity and our human history. What stood out to me was the discussion of what impedes curiosity: fear, lack of motivation, slow information processing due to adverse mental health, and not wanting to experience confusion.

Cover of A Curious MindA Curious Mind is both a memoir and a great primer on ways to stay curious. The author even delves into anti-curiosity. I liked how he touches on our culture’s focus on creativity, but how we also fail to mention curiosity as the primary driver of creativity.
