    This is one of those books that you pick up in the hope that it lives up to its title but is likely not to because it was written by someone from marketing Every now and then it pays off and this is one of those timesThis book spoke volumes to me I have studied math and I love math especially applying it to scientific problems But I have never looked into algorithms nor have I been taught algorithms What a shame I took to the ideas instantl

    I enjoy thinking about algorithms as they are applied to technical problems So when I saw this book I thought This is a book written just for me And that assessment was absolutely correct It is a fascinating book all about how sophisticated algorithms are applicable to everyday problemsThe book starts out describ

    Okay I loved this book So what is it about?The big pictureWe encounter many problems in our daily life for instance should I park my car here or proceed with the hope of finding a free spot a bit further? Should I try new restaurants or just stick to good old ones I know? How can I find my life's purpose? What

    Even though I'm a computer programmer I have to say when I saw the title I was a bit put off Algorithms are what I use for telling a computer what to do but I'm not sure I feel comfortable with using them to tell myself what to do Real life is less tidy and binary than the data in a computerBut perhaps out of train wreck curiousity I picked i

    I really enjoyed this book It's a nice popular review of research in a style similar to Malcolm Gladwell It was fascinating to see the wide reaching applications of classic algorithms from computer science and also humbling to see how many problems are essentially impossible to truly optimize However as luck would have

    In this book the authors explain famous algorithms in real world context My notes from this book 1 Optimal Stopping2 Old people don't lose memory they have so much of it that it slows their system3 Procrastination can be seen as an efficient scheduling problem with wrong priority4 Predictive Models Gaussian Power Law Erla

    So many great one liners in this bookStop on Tinder at 37%Use thick markers in brainstormingAll things being eual it'll last as long as it's lastedBut lest you think this is another fluffy brain book it's actually hard computer programming with the occasional laugh out loud line The team behind it are serious academics who have thought deeply about how computers think and how we can use those algorithms to m

A fascinating exploration of how insights from computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives helping to solve common decision making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mindAll our lives are constrained by limited space and time limits that give rise to a particular set of problems What should we do or leave undone in a day or a lifetime How much messiness should we accept What balance of new act. This is one of those books that you pick up in the hope that it lives up to its title but is likely not to because it was written by someone from marketing Every now and then it pays off and this is one of those timesThis book spoke volumes to me I have studied math and I love math especially applying it to scientific problems But I have never looked into algorithms nor have I been taught algorithms What a shame I took to the ideas instantly and it all made complete sense not only the algorithms but the living by them I guess it all ties into how our brains work and how Turing likened computers to our brains It all makes sense because our brains are computers that work by algorithms Messy algorithms that clash and battle against each other but predictable in some waysSo embracing how algorithms work and some of the solutions they suggest and applying them to your everyday life may seem like a stretch but you re already doing it you just don t realise it And you may not be solving your problems in the most effective manner but the authors explore the reasons for that tooSo if you view reality like I do pick this book up It has revelations in it than any holy text It gives me frameworks to work on problems that I already think about It helped me make even sense of this crazy placeAs soon as I finished the audiobook I started right back at the beginning again The narrator is one of the authors and he does a brilliant job I m going to get a physical copy of this too when it is out in paperback It s a keeper It s a treasure So much bliss

Rithms used by computers can also untangle very human uestions They explain how to have better hunches and when to leave things to chance how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others From finding a spouse to finding a parking spot from organizing one's inbox to understanding the workings of memory Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living. An engaging conceptual tour of computationalnetworking concepts how they apply in the computer world and how we can use them to reframe streamline and manage a diverse array of real life problems both silly and serious As a reader who knows little about computer science but loves learning new frameworks drawing analogies between disparate fields and finding metaphors for life everywhere I thoroughly enjoyed this Some of my favorite principlesconcepts 37% rule of optimal stopping when to stop scouting prospects and just commit exploreexploit tradeoff chance of finding a new gem vs certainty of enjoying a known fave LRU last recently used sorting as an efficient prophylactic for searching layered caches as metaphor for human memory brain fart as cache miss overfitting when interpreting data prefer simple accuracy to complex precision constraint relaxation as a techniue to address knotty problems buffer bloat when backlog is bad best to reject all incoming reuests until it clears exponential back off when head butts recur double your wait time before trying again computational kindness by reducing the options on the table we do people s brains a favor
