Book Description

4 Oct 2012
At the centre of the inside of the human brain's mind is the place where one can find the reasons why human beings behave in such peculiar, delightful and unpleasant ways. I, the author of this book (D.Shrigley BA (Hons)) shall take the reader on a journey around the human brain and along the way I shall point-out various things that are worthy of discussion. We will start our journey in the eye as that is a common entrance place to the brain. I shall ruminate about the eye and its properties. I shall tell how the eye's seeing is sorted-out in the brain and the magical nature of it and I shall warn of all the things that can go wrong in this sorting-out process. After the eye, we shall travel to the ear and discuss the world that is heard and how it is heard in the brain and all the awful things that can go wrong; some of them amusing and some not amusing. Taste and smell will of course be covered as these are also things of interest to the brain. We will also touch upon touch, so to speak. We will also touch upon the scalp, but only lightly and briefly. Once we have looked at the brain's government of the senses we shall start to talk about the really interesting stuff. Like how the brain decides what is right and wrong and why some people are very charming and others behave like monkeys. Some other questions that might be dealt-with are as follows: Could my brain be removed and replaced with a computer? Why can't I remember my wife's name? I can constantly hear a faint whistling sound; is it the sound of my brain functioning?

Excellent ... There's more to Shrigley than his knowing nods to high art - Guardian, on Brain Activity, at the Hayward Gallery

You will laugh, genuinely laugh, be moved by its sharp insights, and wonder at how sometimes execrable drawing can express so much about the world. then see how they're actually beautiful

While this book is not quite as good as David Shrigley's 'What the hell are you doing?', it's still brilliant, inane, and absolutely hilarious.

David Shrigley - what can I say? He is a very talented and funny man. This book was cheaper than at his exhibition so I am very happy. A brilliant read and quirky look at life.
