This is such a fun read! I like science, but I don't like TOO much detail -- I am after all a liberal arts major. But I am also interested in science, and have a long tradition of watching Nature, Nova, Cosmos... If it's been on PBS and is about science and/or natural history, I've probably seen it and read the companion book.

Ackerman has a comfortable writing style, and a great sense of humor as well. She brings in fascinating new research in how our bodies work without overwhelming the reader with detail more appropriate to a medical journal. I wished once or twice for a list of abbreviations, but otherwise didn't find myself bogged down in the book at all.

If you find advances and discoveries on how our brains and bodies interact interesting, pick up this book.
