Product description

Review

"Persuasive, impassioned... hopeful news [for those] suffering from functional bowel disease."--New York TimesBook Review

"In The Second Brain, Gershon makes a persuasive, impassioned and, at times, downright lyrical case...the book succeeds in presenting an often grim and complex topic in a surprisingly witty and engaging manner."--Jacqueline Boone, The New York Times Book Review

"An interesting treatise that records the rediscovery of the importance of the nervous system in the abdominal organs, this book provides an opportunity for lay readers to explore the fascination of the Second Brain and the scientists who discover its marvels...Dr. Gershon documents this new renaissance in enteric neuroscience."--Michael Camilleri, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Physiology, Mayo Foundation, Gastroenterology Research Unit

Synopsis

A work of scientific discovery, this text reveals how the intensive creation of nerve cells in our gut - our second brain - was forgotten and how its rediscovery is transforming modern medicine.
