Richard Epworthabout this book: I always had a passion for understanding things and distrusted explanations without evidence. A few years ago, while working at a top UK research laboratory, I discovered just how limited our learning ability really is. This started me on a journey researching how we experience the world around us through our senses. I discovered that most of what we experience is a story constructed in our minds to make sense of our past and present. This book reveals the evidence for our narrow learning bottleneck, and the explores the shocking implications both for technology and for ourselves.
Bottleneck has been ten years in the making. I have taken care to make the topic accessible to readers without any great knowledge of science, while including sufficient detailed evidence and references to satisfy others.
• "Brilliant: We live in a world of megabyte junkies, where people have an insatiable appetite for information bandwidth. Against this back drop Richard Epworth stands back from the crowd and asks an important question; of all this information that we gobble up, how much do we actually digest?" — BF
