The Amazing Brain is an excellent introduction to the immensely complicated nervous system of a human being. This book is largely fact-based and contains all kinds of information, which may seem very boring, but the author has made all of this extremely interesting. The explanation given is easy to understand and easy to read.
Probably somewhat dated by now but I remember it as a really good introduction to some of the fascinating elements about the brain. Good for someone interested in the brain but who doesn't have a lot of background training in the field.
