Dont go on title! It's so much more than title!

One of the best book i read this year. Absolutely go for it. IT IS "NOT" USUAL RANT OF HOW LIFE AS A DR IS HARD OR HOW TOUGH IT IS TO BECOME A DOCTOR.
It will definitely improve your understanding of human brain and will burst your myth regarding brain and has very awesome collection of neuro-cases and practical take away points from it. Book can be layman's insight into developing brain science.

Strong basic guide to the brain

There’s a lot to recommend this book if you know nothing about the brain and you’re interested in developing its potential for your lifetime.

It’s well structured and dynamic, peppered with insightful case studies.

It’s strength is also its weakness; it’s an overview so you’ll find yourself craving more if you’re a professional in any area related to brain health.

But would I recommend it to my 80 year old mum? Yes. Absolutely.
