  • Description or summary of the book: Dr. Juan is that rarest of rarities, a scholar with a sense of humor. He fearlessly tours the brain's mysterious corridors, discussing such wide-ranging topics as phobias, compulsive water drinking, serial killers, the secrets of hypnotism, and the man who thought he was a cat. You will find this book absolutely engrossing. Do kleptomaniacs have a legitimate excuse to steal? Can excessive TV watching physically 'shape' a child's growing brain? These answers and scores more fill Dr. Stephen Juan's fascinating and endlessly entertaining book 'The Odd Brain.' Following up his popular first book, 'The Odd Body,' Dr. Juan takes us on an animated tour of the enigmatic organ that sits on top of them all. Equal parts scholarly professor-he teaches at the University of Sydney-cultural detective, and theater of oddities tour guide, Dr. Juan explores bizarre brain disorders and the normal-but-still-weird brain phenomena that we all occasionally experience (like deja vu). Through it all, Dr. Juan pulls off the nifty trick of making the clinical both clear and entertaining. Each chapter is packed with real-life anecdotes and case studies. These include the Criminal Brain, the Savant Brain, the Shy Brain, the Suicidal Brain, the Thrill-Seeking Brain, the Obsessive-Compulsive Brain, and more than 20 others. For anyone who's ever witnessed unusual behavior and thought, 'Now, what would make a person do that?' 'The Odd Brain' is sure to have an answer.
