Description - Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon: The New Science and Stories of the Brain by Dr Rahul Jandial

A Latina English teacher must choose between losing her mother tongue or her profession. A former TV exec, now homeless, discovers that his life-altering despondency comes from a tumour. A fainting teen learns that deep breathing could be the difference between life and death. Is recovery possible?

In a blend of beautiful storytelling and cutting-edge research, world-leading neuroscientist and neurosurgeon Dr Rahul Jandial uncovers the most extreme examples of brain damage, disorders and illnesses. He takes us to a brain bootcamp as he recollects extraordinary patient stories, sharing invaluable advice on maintaining brain health (neurofitness) along the way.

Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon debunks the many myths around the science of the mind, such as sleep being a time of quiet for the brain. It is also a vital resource on the best ways to- boost your memory, control stress and emotions, minimize pain, unleash your creativity, raise smart kids and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.

This is a deeply practical and readable book, which will take you on an expedition through the anatomy of the most fascinating - and mysterious - of organs.
