Review

What a great book and an interesting way to explain the inner workings of the brain to an ordinary Joe like me!  Crossing over art and science was just genius! This book takes you on a tour of your brain and helps you to understand things like how we remember, how we perceive things, and how we recall information.  It also touches on the difference between the mind and the brain.  I found this book very enlightening and recommend it not only for adults but for teens interested in science as well.
