Product Description

Everything from neurons to consciousness in the blink of an eye (which takes 300 milliseconds).

Take a “fantastic voyage” through the whorls and curves of the human brain, no miniaturization required. Learn everything from how quickly you can possibly think (and that left-handed people think faster) to why being bad feels so good (yes, there’s a biochemical explanation).

Whether you're a fan of Scientific American’s wildly popular "60-Second Science" podcast or just curious about science, you’re going to love the tingly way your synapses feel after enjoying the same bite-sized knowledge in The Instant Egghead Guide to the Mind.
