Product description

Review

"'An amazing book about the human head, I've never seen anything like it... A very heady, heady experience... Thrilling' Lynne Truss, Sunday Times 'Fascinating... A wonderful treasury of stupefying facts, a sort of "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" compendium... This is a wonderful book.' Michael Simkins, Mail On Sunday 'The pages burst with an entertaining mixture of intriguing facts and thought-provoking observations.' Andrew Robinson, New Scientist"
