Fascinating research findings but unfortunately no references attached


This handbook essentially is a summarized digest, simplified for the lay people. From the minute the alarm clock buzzes in the morning until our heads hit the pillow at night, our daily activities - everything from doing a crossword puzzle to parallel parking - are part of a process for how we evaluate the world, make choices and decisions, and reach short-term goals while keeping our eyes on the bigger ones.

It would have been a fascinating book for me, except for the fact that there is no bibliographic or reference list. This is disastrous for a book that claims to describe the latest findings from neuroscience, psychology, medicine, etc. I was completely put off by the absence of the reference list. Without the references, how could I be sure of anything that is said?
