    Story
    (106)

    Despite everything that has been written about the brain, a very important part of this vital organ has been overlooked in most books - until now. The Other Brain is the story of glia, which make up approximately 85 percent of the cells in the brain. Long neglected as little more than cerebral packing material ("glia" means glue), glia are sparking a revolution in brain science.

    Douglas says: "Some bit of knowledge in the field of neurology..."
    "The BEST book on the brain"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Other Brain in three words, what would they be?

    This is new information about the brain. It is real research but with a new perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole book is good.


    What does Victor Bevine and R. Douglas Fields (introduction) bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The magic of the glial cells.


    Any additional comments?

    I have returned and started listening again.

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    What is America becoming? Or, more importantly, what can she be if we reclaim a vision for the things that made her great in the first place? In America the Beautiful, Dr. Ben Carson helps us learn from our past in order to chart a better course for our future. From his personal ascent from inner-city poverty to international medical and humanitarian acclaim, Carson shares experiential insights that help us understand... what is good about America... and where we have gone astray.

    Story

    This perspective from an unusual and aclaimed source has some great ideas on how to get the country moving again and restore the civil discourse. It is not right or left wing. It is common sense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fresh ideas


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The challenge for the country we should have had after 9/11.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    We can be better than we are.
