If you're a fellow Nerdfighter, you'll understand why I had to read this! For a book about freak accidents and brain science, it's certainly witty and entertaining. Nothing is drawn out, I didn't find myself bored at all. In fact, I read it all in one sitting. Phineas Gage is truly a remarkable case, I think anyone would be intrigued by it, especially the brain science aspects discussed later in the book (which was written out clearly and made easy to understand!) Definitely worth it - if you can stomach it!
