    In My Stroke of Insight, Taylor shares her unique perspective on the brain and its capacity for recovery, and the sense of omniscient understanding she gained from this unusual and inspiring voyage out of the abyss of a wounded brain. It would take eight years for Taylor to heal completely. Because of her knowledge of how the brain works, her respect for the cells composing her human form, and most of all an amazing mother, Taylor completely repaired her mind and recalibrated her understanding of the world.

    Lisa says: "very, very illuminating!"
    "Our Marvelous Brains"
    Overall

    An excellent book that gives a glimpse of how the brain functions and what it is capable of.
    It is an adult's eye witness account of how our brains may have developed as we grew up.
    Most of us grew up and found out that we have a brain. We do not understand how we got to where we are. This book gives some clues.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "A Short History"
    Overall

    Excellent book for those who seek knowledge on a variety of science and astronomical topics. Facts, interwoven with small detailed stories about individuals and events, made it a lot more fascinating.
    I loved it so much that I decided to buy a hard copy as well for keep.
