I always kinda liked Jonah Lehrer.
I never read his books, but I meant to.
I figured they were the neuroscience equivalent of Malcolm Gladwell.
I think those kinds of people are generally good for the field. So what if his books are dumbed down. That kind of dumbed down stuff is what gets people interested in the field, and that leads a few of them to go beyond that stuff.
I feel bad for him. It must suck to be in his position.
Assuming there are no other skeletons, he seems to be handling this as well as he can.
I hope he can bounce back. Id be curious to know what he does next.
Maybe he can take over Hauser's book Evilicious about morality, which I assume is on ice now.
