'Be warned: you may find your world turned upside down' - Guardian Have you ever wondered why you have a brain? Let renowned neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett demystify that big grey blob between your ears . . . In seven short chapters (plus a brief history of how brains evolved), this slim, entertaining, and accessible book reveals mind-expanding lessons from the front lines of neuroscience research. You'll learn where brains came from, how they're structured (and why it matters), and how yours works in tandem with other brains to create everything you experience. Along the way, you'll also learn to dismiss popular myths such as the idea of a 'lizard brain' and the alleged battle between thoughts and emotions, or even between nature and nurture, to determine your behaviour. Sure to intrigue casual readers and scientific veterans alike, Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain is full of surprises, humour, and important implications for human nature - a gift of a book about our most complex and crucial organ.

It will make you smarter about yourself, and your species. -- Leonard Mlodinow, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Drunkard's Walk</i> A smart and delightfully breezy look at the things most of us think we know about the brain, but don't. -- Daniel Gilbert, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Stumbling on Happiness</i>
