The Idiot Brain: A Neuroscientist Explains What Your Head is Really Up To
Motion sickness. Nightmares. Forgetting people's names. Why did I walk into this room?
For something supposedly so brilliant and evolutionarily advanced, the human brain is pretty messy, fallible and disorganised.
In The Idiot Brain, neuroscientist Dean Burnett tours our mysterious and mischievous grey (and white) matter. Along the way he explains the human brain's imperfections in all their glory and how these influence everything we say, do and experience.
Expertly researched and entertainingly written, this book is for anyone who has wondered why their brain seems to be sabotaging their life, and what on earth it is really up to.
Compelling and wise and rational. You know you can trust him ... a great read. (Jon Ronson)
This is a wonderful introduction to neuroscience, and deserves to be widely read. (Leyla Sanai Independent)
