Jonah Lehrer is the author of two books, Proust Was a Neuroscientist and How We Decide:

Proust Was a Neuroscientist

In his debut book, Lehrer argues for an intimate relationship with science and the humanities, and he argues that many discoveries of neuroscience are actually rediscoveries of insights made much earlier by various artists, notably including Marcel Proust.

How We Decide

Here, Jonah argues there are two main parts of the brain involved in decision-making, the rational and the emotional. On February 5, 2009, he appeared on The Colbert Report to discuss this book.
