Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Within our skulls resides an organ more powerful than the fastest supercomputer, the ultimate multi-tasker controlling everything from the retrieval of memories to complex reasoning - and even breathing. The Rough Guide to the Brain provides an absorbing and accessible introduction to the science of the mind. From how the human brain evolved over millions of years and how it differs from those of other animals to the power of positive thinking and extrasensory perception hypnosis. Illustrated throughout with photos and diagrams, this Rough Guide is guaranteed to get you thinking.

Book News Annotation:

For those who want to get to know their grey matter better, Gibb (molecular biologist/science communicator, UK) offers an up-to- date, accessible tour of the organ that is the key to consciousness. With visual aids, he explains the brain's continuing evolution (toward a human-machine hybrid?); processing under normal, abnormal, and supernormal conditions; and misconceptions and advances in understanding how it works. The book fascinating boxed material, intelligence tests, and resources. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
