Kaja Nordengen
The Only Irreplacable Organ

The brain makes you who you are. It enables you to communicate with other people, from simple messages to subtle use of irony. The brain gives you feelings and personality. The brain keeps memories from early childhood. The brain makes you fall in love, and helps you interpret complex patterns and information. But the brain can also tempt you to make bad choices, and it rewards addiction. Join neurologist Kaja Nordengen in her fascinating journey through the many unexplored territories of the human brain. A best selling book full of striking examples and admirable use of up to date medical science.

A brilliant book … Nordengen masters her subject to the fullest.
