In all of creation, the least likely thing ever to be well understood is the human brain. Professor Medina spins what we know and the fuzzy parts we think we know into an engaging and entertaining story. Easy to follow and peppered with fascinating anecdotes and examples, this is a good listen for anyone, regardless of educational level or background in the sciences. As an MD and son of a neurology professor, it is the best telling of this story I have yet found.

wow! I am blown away by the narrator in this book. He is charismatic and very well informed. His cadence and tone really hook you and keep you paying attention; you can practically hear his smile as he peppers in anecdotes and real world situations to support what he is speaking about. I highly recommend this audio book.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The narrator has a lot to say but the style of the delivery is perhaps more suitable to early adolescents or pre-teen children than to adults. He is so keen to be accessible and easy to understand that it sometimes comes over as a little patronising. 'Don't get intimidated by all those long words, now!' He seems an affable enough chap but could do with trusting his audience a little more.

Great explanations of how the brain works in relation to our feelings emotions and general wellbeing and how to optimise it's functions. Well read in a way that holds your interest and even quite amusing at times.

I was not impressed that this whole series of lectures are evolutionary theory rather than brain science.
