The Amazing Brain Reviews

  • Elaine

    The Amazing Brain is an excellent introduction to the immensely complicated nervous system of a human being. This book is largely fact-based and contains all kinds of information, which may seem very boring, but the author has made all of this extremely interesting. The explanation given is easy to understand and easy to read.

  • Charles

    Probably somewhat dated by now but I remember it as a really good introduction to some of the fascinating elements about the brain. Good for someone interested in the brain but who doesn't have a lot of background training in the field.

    Received this book as a graduation gift before attending graduate school - one of my favorite reads, and definitely a great resource for describing neurobiology to a wide audience.

  • Charles

    Dated a bit, of course, having been written in 1984. Has some neat visuals. Primarily meant as an introduction for readers who really aren't very familiar with science or brain biology.

    Great reference, great read!
