Product description

Review

“A wonderful combination of coffee-table book, engaging and informative reading experience, and handy reference. ... it resembles Carl Sagan’s popular works.” (Booklist)

“Targeting an audience of lifelong learners... [it] offers a variety of ideas and perspectives and some excellent reading lists for the general reader.” (Library Journal)

”An intriguing book! I’m impressed with the author’s knowledge of current research and his ability to effectively translate it for the general reader.” (Gordon Claridge, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor, Psychology Department, University of Oxford)

Bridges the gap between the findings of neuropsychological research and their application by the general public. Humane clarity and practicality are the hallmarks of Dr. Howard’s work. A book to be read -- and applied.” (Peter J. Fagan, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Director, Office of USFHP, Behavioral Healthcare, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institute)

“This useful look at all the facets of the brain and its inner workings will be an excellent resource for those curious about how this organ works and for those looking for a more readable interpretation of the scientific studies done on it.” (Library Journal)
