    4.5 out of 5 stars 25

Margaret Starbird's theological beliefs were profoundly shaken when she read Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a book that dared to suggest that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalen and that their descendants carried on his holy bloodline in Western Europe. Shocked by such heresy, this Roman Catholic scholar set out to refute it but instead found new and compelling evidence for the existence of the bride of Jesus - the same enigmatic woman who anointed him with precious unguent from her "alabaster jar".

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. The lists of everything got to be irritating.

Has Super Brain turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

Which scene was your favorite?

I like the positive approach.

Could you see Super Brain being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.

Any additional comments?

It had to many lists of things to do, one... It got irritating and boring. More real life examples would be better.
