Science writer and poet Brian Christian (author of “The Most Human Human,” a New Yorker Favorite Book of the Year) read at Elliott Bay Book Company, here in Seattle, over the weekend. It was my pleasure to sit down with Brian and discuss his latest book, co-authored with Tom Griffiths, “ALGORITHMS TO LIVE BY: The Computer Science of Human Decisions,” published by Henry Holt and Company.

I begin our conversation my relating the work of Malcolm Gladwell to what this new book has to offer: opportunities to help people reach their eureka moments. You can read my review here.
