Product description

Review

I really admire Dean Burnett's work. He's very compelling and wise and rational. You know you can trust him and you know it's going to be a great read. (Jon Ronson)

This is a wonderful introduction to neuroscience, and deserves to be widely read. (Leyla Sanai Independent)

A witty breath of fresh air. I laughed, I worried, I learned the difference between semantic memory and episodic memory. If it winds up becoming the A Brief History of Time of neuroscience, then that’s gravy. (PopMatters)

An entertaining romp through the science of our mental mental processes. Full of fascinating insight into the brain and the origins of our crazy behaviour. (Gaia Vince, author of Adventures in the Anthropocene)

Book Description

From the hugely popular Guardian science blogger, a surprising, funny and mind-bending examination of how and why the brain sabotages our behaviour.
