Ugh, my first book of 2020 is a "did not finish"! Noooo!
ELECTRIC BRAIN is not a bad book, the problem is that it is very dense and not that easy to read. Now before you accuse me of being some idiot who dabbles in romance novels and doesn't know what she's talking about (the go-to insult for people on these sites wanting to discredit me, lol), I have a Bachelor's in Psychology (cum laude, y'all) and I used to tutor introductory ...more
I tried so much with this book, and it did have good information - and yet, reading it was such a chore - like reading a textbook. At one point I didn't think I was going to finish (kidding - way more than one point..)

Seeing the humanity and emotion within an experiment both drives a reader's interest and gives the ...more
When I first requested this book, I found it really intriguing. As I was reading it, however, I felt like it didn't tickle my fancy as much as I would have liked. It was still interesting, though.
