    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.

    Overall

    Great book in that it covers a topic to which most people have very little exposure. It is always interesting to hear more about the people and events behind scientific research that do not make it into journal publications or the mainstream news. It was very exciting to hear about what the leaders in this field of study are doing and how they got to that place in their career. I talked a friend who does not have a background in biological research into listening to this book and will encourage him to let me know what he thinks of it and submit a review since, based on one of the other reviews here, it might be too technical for some people to enjoy. The only thing that I did not like was that the narrator pronounced some very commonly used terms in ways that I have never heard them pronounced, which became tiresome for such a long audio book. I recommend this book to anyone interested in neurobiological research.
