A great introductory book comprised of five chapters loosely based on her public lectures. As a reader, you get a real sense of the author’s genuine interest in telling you about the brain.
A competent guide, Susan moves from looking at regions of the brain, to look at brain functions. The tour then heads to the building blocks of the brain, finally exploring the mind and memory. A relatively short read, no topic is covered in great depth, but it is a nice overview.
