I'm currently reading How the Mind Works by Steven Pinkher and I would like to ask, what would the interviewers ask regarding the books? Is there any particular way I should be thinking about the book?

Also, what would UCL ask about the book?

Thanks!

Chances are they won't ask anything at all. If they do ask, it will be something general to see how you responded to the book - ie 'Do you think Pinker was making a valid point in his book? They aren't going to ask something like 'In Chapter 4 Pinker says X can you give us an 3 flaws in his argument?".

Any university would be the same, unlikely to ask, but if they do, it would be an exploration of your thoughts/response to the book, no right or wrong answer (except no answer because you didn't actually read it!)
