Synopsis

'This is the story of how your life shapes your brain, and how your brain shapes your life.'



Join renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman on a whistle-stop tour of the inner cosmos. It's a journey that will take you into the world of extreme sports, criminal justice, genocide, brain surgery, robotics and the search for immortality. On the way, amidst the infinitely dense tangle of brain cells and their trillions of connections, something emerges that you might not have expected to see: you.

Staff Choice

This is a great book for anyone interested in neuroscience who doesn’t happen to have a background in brain surgery! Broken up into easy to digest chapters covering a broad range of subjects, this really is a whistle-stop tour of the brain. Eagleman still manages to present the core facts clearly and concisely, using fascinating research and care studies to back it all up.
