The Instant Egghead Guide to the Mind thoroughly covers the human brain, explaining everything from neurons to consciousness in the blink of an eye (which takes 300 milliseconds). Based on Scientific American’s wildly popular "60-Second Science" podcast, The Instant Egghead Guide to the Mind takes you though the whorls and curves of the human brain, explaining everything from how quickly you can possibly think (and that left-handed people think faster) to why being bad feels so good (yes, there’s a biochemical explanation).
STEVE MIRSKY has written the Anti-Gravity column for Scientific American since 1995. In 2006 he launched the daily Scientific American podcast, "60-Second Science," with tens of thousands of listeners and millions of downloads to date.<
