“Sam Kean’s skill in illuminating how the brain’s functions and malfunctions manifest themselves in people’s lives makes for an absorbing reading.” – Howard Schneider, Wall Street Journals

Description: Sam Kean launches the reader into interesting and thrilling stories of how breakthroughs in neurology happened. He explains in depth how they were phenomenon at the time, and honestly still are. “Sam Kean unearths stories behind such neurological curiosities as phantom limbs, viruses that eat patients’ memories, and blind people who see with their tongues.”

“Most scientists at the time believed that insanity, true insanity, always betrayed itself by clear brain damage-lesions, hemorrhages, putrid tissue, something. Inside [his] skull, though, nothing seemed amiss at first.” (52)
