"...well done...easy to understand...clearly written..."
Lorgnette

"...written by neuroscientists and provide[s] in-depth explanations suitable for teachers or highly motivated students. But there is also enough story and personal information to be useful to the more casual reader. This combination of authorship by professionals in the field, depth of explanation, and popular interest vignettes produce[s] superior candidates for any library serving youth."
