The Great Brain Book free pdf The anatomy, functions, surgery, care and feeding, historical discovery, and imminent improvements of this complex and powerful organ in an "oh-wow!" package. High interest with just a touch of yuck.
Understanding the brain is one of the biggest challenges facing scientists. We still don't know how the brain creates thoughts! Newquist peels back the layers of the brain to explain what it's made of, how it works, and how to make your brain work for you. From eyeballs to neurons, vivid illustrations show pieces of its complex structure.
The historical chapter details how Egyptians scooped out the brains of mummies, and how phrenology developed. Brain surgery and brain abnormalities are explained, as is the function of sleep and dreams. An informal and intriguing look inside your head.

Ultimate Reference To The Web," a guide to the best websites on the Internet (a Book Of The Month Club Main Selection)- "The Way They Play" series, which teaches students how to play music like their favorite musicians- and "The Brain Makers," a history of man's quest to create thinking machines. His writing been translated into languages including Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, and even Indonesian.
