The brain

9781783350810[1]         I’m reading The Idiot Brain by Dean Burnett.  It’s a fascinating and amusing read on how the brain works; to quote Dean “it’s messy, fallible and disorganised”.

As a keen student of human nature, I’m loving it, thought it’s hard to believe that a book that is essentially scientific can be such a page turner.  It’s intriguing how the brain is so haphazard and has a tendency to look for the bad rather than the good as a throwback to caveman times when danger (and a dinosaur) lurked around every corner.

Thoroughly recommended!
