5.0 out of 5 stars a truly detailed read but understandable, 4 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 50 Human Brain Ideas You Really Need to Know (50 Ideas You Really Need to Know series) (Kindle Edition)
I am 16 and fairly interested in neurology. This book gives both the scientific vocab of the brain but also the social and ethical aspects of the brain. It isn't overly complicated so anyone with a slight interest in neuroscience will enjoy it thoroughly!

Highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An underappreciated book, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a Psychologist interested in neuroscience I find Mo's book succinct, knowledgeable and to the point.I find that from time to time the BBC ask me to guest their radio programs and this technical stuff can be a little intimidating for the listeners. This book is an excellent aid memoir and offer detailed information in aa condens3d way, if that makes sense. An excellent buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up-to-date information in study of the Brain, 9 May 2015
This book consists in fifty short essays on various subjects related to the understanding of the human brain. Each chapter also has a timeline below listing major developments in the area in question and citing those who have contributed them. As a layman I learned much from the book.It is written clearly and is suitable for the general reader. Each essay is a short introductory one to a complex subject. The more technical essays I cannot really comment on but general ones such as the ones on Personality, or on Gender Differences seemed to me a thin and far from comprehensive. What the book is good at and focuses on is in providing the latest up-to- date developments in a wide area of researches related to the brain.

This review is from: 50 Human Brain Ideas You Really Need to Know (50 Ideas You Really Need to Know series) (Kindle Edition)
This book provides the layman with an up-to-date and non-technical introduction to the neuroscientific study of the brain, looking at what is known and what is still to be discovered. The chapters are in short, easily-digested chunks that are relatively self-contained.

Does what it says on the tin(cover). Nicely condensed into 50 chapters and easy to follow writing. Can't go wrong if you want a brief overview of the brain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need to know, 25 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I actually survived a long time without this book, so in a sense the title is not strictly accurate. Again, maybe I'm being over critical. I have no problem believing that "I can't believe it's not butter" isn't butter either.

I wonder what this says about my brain. Hang on. Here we are. Chapter 13...
