About Pick the Brain

Pick the Brain

Pick the Brain was founded in November, 2006. Since then it has become one of the fastest growing blogs on the web. It diverges from traditional "self-help" by using a broader approach that emphasizes intellectually stimulating content. Popular topics include personal productivity, motivation, education, fitness and psychology.

The founder, editor-in-chief, and primary writer for PickTheBrain.com is John Wesley. The site is a product of John's passion for self improvement and personal growth. He holds a BS in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia, works full time as a Simulation Modeling Engineer, and loves nothing more than a quiet afternoon with a good book.
