A prosthesis that can communicate with and be controlled by your brain. A microchip placed in the eye of a person previously blind that allows the patient to see again. A machine that can tell us what a person is thinking about. Drugs tailor made for a specific person to help them deal with emotional issues. The stuff of science fiction? No. It is reality. The human brain is not only our most complex organ, but also the most complex entity known to mankind. We are in an age of fantastic and prolific neurological research with advances occurring faster than in any other scientific field. This research promises to help us with our mental health, social adjustment, satisfaction with life, our ability to learn, and our ability to remember, (and forget). The brain contains approximately 90 billion neurons. We are beginning to understand their functions more and more each day. This three-pound organ the shape of a cauliflower has fascinated man for centuries. The study of the brain is now less philosophical and more scientific. As neurological research becomes more and more enlightening and practical, a general understanding of the brain and the major issues of neurological science become more important. It is not rocket science or brain surgery (pun intended) to have a basic understanding of the state of our knowledge of the brain today. This book will acquaint the reader with thirty of the most important and interesting topics in the study of the brain. The author will assume that the reader has limited knowledge of the brain and it's functions, and will present information in every day language with very limited use of scientific jargon. The brain is responsible for how we perceive our world and how we behave in it. Let us begin our journey of understanding it.

Groundbreaking new research shows that by grabbing hold of the three-step "loop" all habits form in our brains--cue, routine, reward--we can change them, giving us the power to take control over our lives. "We are what we repeatedly do," said Aristotle. "Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." On the most basic level, a habit is a simple neurological loop: there is a cue (my mouth feels gross), a routine (hello, Crest), and a reward (ahhh, minty fresh). Understanding this loop is the key to exercising regularly or becoming more productive at work or tapping into reserves of creativity. Marketers, too, are learning how to exploit these loops to boost sales; CEOs and coaches are using them to change how employees work and athletes compete. As this book shows, tweaking even one habit, as long as it's the right one, can have staggering effects. In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg takes readers inside labs where brain scans record habits as they flourish and die; classrooms in which students learn to boost their willpower; and boardrooms where executives dream up products that tug on our deepest habitual urges. Full of compelling narratives that will appeal to fans of Michael Lewis, Jonah Lehrer, and Chip and Dan Heath, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: our most basic actions are not the product of well-considered decision making, but of habits we often do not realize exist. By harnessing this new science, we can transform our lives.

The God Delusion caused a sensation when it was published in 2006. Within weeks it became the most hotly debated topic, with Dawkins himself branded as either saint or sinner for presenting his hard-hitting, impassioned rebuttal of religion of all types. His argument could hardly be more topical. While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children. The God Delusion is a brilliantly argued, fascinating polemic that will be required reading for anyone interested in this most emotional and important subject.
