The Brain Show is an extraordinary book. It’s quite long, but it didn’t feel that long while I was reading it. It talkes about the human brain (duh) and what goes on in our brain while we live our ordinary, day-to-day lives. Things like how memories are formed, why we dream and how that happens, how the brain changes over time and how people can influence your brain.

The subject matter is complex (our brains are complex things after all) but the author conveys all this information in a straightforward, down-to-earth style. The chapters all focus on different aspects of the brain, and covers a long list of subjects related to the brain, even talking about brain injuries and the effect they have on people.

This is an intriguing book and anyone who has ever wanted to learn more about how our brain works, should definitely read it.
