If you have friends or family who have suffered any kind of brain damage from accidents or strokes, this book will give you insight into how their experience of life has changed and how you might be more understanding of their behavior. It will also help you understand yourself and the mechanisms of your brain that are beyond your conscious reach. Unbelievable!!!

This is the best book that I have ever read. It captures the mystery of the brain so well. V.S. Ramachandran has a great sence of humor and all of the stories included in this book are facinating!! READ IT!!

A brilliant "Sherlock Holmes" of neuroscience reveals the strangest cases he has solved, uncovering bold insights into deep and quirky questions of human nature few scientists have dared to address. 25 line illustrations.
