The Idiot Brain by Dean Burnett
Ever walked into a room and immediately forgotten why you were headed in there at all? Wondered why our own bodies inflict motion sickness or unnerving nightmares on us? The answers are in this book – and they’re a little ridiculous. Dean Burnett is a neuroscientist who shares his endless and confusing knowledge about the why’s, and no-seriously-why’s of our brain’s most pointless, silly and illogical habits. Having a human brain, despite its many incredible capabilities, definitely comes with a few inbuilt glitches. Funny, startling and totally fascinating, The Idiot Brain is a fantastic book.
