PositiveLibrary JournalChock-full of scientific information conveyed by a skilled storyteller, Kemp’s book is recommended for readers interested in the neurological differences between those who have an internal compass and those who get hopelessly lost.
Jacob M. Appel
PositiveLibrary JournalAppel rarely offers a directive or a \'correct\' answer; rather, he leaves each case open-ended in the hope that it will stimulate thought and discussion. Additionally, further reading options at the end of the work provide ample resources for each reflection ... An engaging, thought-provoking, and accessible exploration of the many knotty issues that have appeared in newspaper headlines or challenged medical professionals behind closed doors.
RaveSchool Library JournalOnce again Green offers a well-developed cast of characters capable of both reflective thought and hilarious dialogue. With his trademark humor, lovable parents, and exploration of big-time challenges, The Fault in Our Stars is an achingly beautiful story about life and loss.
Eric R. Kandel
RaveLibrary JournalParticularly interesting is the chapter on addiction in which Kandel effectively argues that addiction is a brain disorder, not a moral failing, and should be treated as such. Having a firm grasp on the biology of the brain, especially as it relates to genes and the environment, improves our sense of both individuality and shared humanity ... Kandel\'s clear and straightforward writing makes this informative scientific exploration accessible and compelling to both medical practitioners, researchers, and general readers interested in how the mysteries of human nature arise from the physical matter of the brain.
