The book is rather short but fairly goodThe book consisted of 15 chapters or journeys as Zimmer claims Most chapters are 5 or 6 pages long so they are very convenient if you're reading them while commuting The chapter I liked most is the Googled mind I even have 2 uotes to share with you from that chapter Socrates worried that writing would make people forgetful and unwise We are in Clark’s words “natural born cyborgs”Without even knowing much about the author who I later figured out that he is a popular science writer from Yale it was obvious that he is no scientist or neurologist But that doesn't have to keep you away from reading the book which won't take much of your time anyway

The human brain has long been a mystery but twenty first century science is beginning to reveal some of its inner workings With microscopes and brain scans with psychological experiments and breakthroughs in genetics neuros. Great collection of articles about the brain and current scientific understanding of how it works I was able to pick up a few case studies and insights I hadn't read anywhere else before Overall a really interesting short exploration of the mind and study of the mind I'm happy that Zimmer has released another collection under this series and I've already started that one because I enjoyed this one so much

This is the shortest book I have read from Carl Zimmer but not an easy book A lot to learn a lot to think of It is a complicated subject and very interesting but with lots of unknowns It is a science book but with a lot of missing answers some assumptions and a lot of recent research and pressure to move forward into understanding how the brain works
