In their book, Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang dispel common myths about the brain and provide a comprehensive, useful overview of how it really works. They apply practical neuroscience to everyday life, explaining jet lag, how the brain affects an individual's religion, and how men’s and women’s brains differ. With accessible prose enhanced by charts, trivia, quizzes, and illustrations, this book is great for reference or extended reading.
