In his new book, "Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior," Mlodinow discusses the many hidden quirks of the human brain that shape our decisions and understanding of the world.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Leonard Mlodinow, author, screenwriter, physicist and lecturer at the California Institute of Technology
