    One thought on “It's All In Your Head”

    1. It's All In Your Head can be an engaging and humorous read, replete with fun facts, graphics and photos. However, it is in the substance that this book is found wanting.Keith Blanchard tackles some serious issues such as Lyme disease, strokes, PTSD,  concussions, depression, autism and addiction in a perfunctory manner, often no more than cursory one page treatments. There are also superfluous subjects like the interpretation of dreams, psychoanalysis of fictional villains (Joffrey Baratheon, T [...]

    2. Fantastic book! It’s All In Your Head is enlightening, educational and fun! Despite the rather serious material, it is written quite conversationally, engaging the reader almost immediately. I have had an interest in neuroscience for some time now, but this book is definitely not just for nerds like myself. Discussions include meeting your transmitters, discovering the parts of your brain, understanding neuroplasticity and the brain’s hemispheres, how thoughts work, brain scans explained…e [...]

    3. It's All in your Head has good coverage of a lot of psychology-related topics. In particular, I thought that the the early sections were great--nice graphics, information regarding the brain and neurotransmitters was at a good level for someone who is interested in learning about the brain and doesn't have a psychology background. I'd even thought that this would be a book that I would recommend to my students or that it would rival some of the textbooks that I have used. However, the later sect [...]

    4. I loved this book. A lot.Despite all my anatomy experience, I always hated/avoided neuro. The brain has always freaked me out, and I shouldn't admit this, but as someone who has taught anatomy and physiology to high school students and TA'd it at the college level, to this day I can't name all the parts of the brain or tell you where they are. I purposefully have blocked that out from my brain (lol) because it's just too much to comprehend. Same thing with embryology. (It's amazing we even exist [...]

    5. It's All in Your Head is a fun, accessible read. The book caught my eye throughout — while it could masquerade as a coffee table book, it calls out to be picked up, leafed through, and engaged. It’s All In Your Head read more wide than deep on many matters of the brain—the formation of memories, how thoughts work, how to take a coffee power nap, and even my faith’s impact on my brain— and I feel smarter for the read. Definitely worth the read.

    6. I accepted this book from Netgalley for an honest review. This was the sort of book I could pick up an enjoy during breaks and shorter allowed moments. It is chock full of information.If you have a brain nerd or someone who enjoys anatomy and physiology, this book would make a great gift.It is not deep science.

    7. After reading Brain On Fire I was desperate for more 'brainy' books which led me to this book. And it was not at all what I was expecting. Everyone assumes that non-fiction are boring, rambling text books not this one!I found myself laughing out loud and reading snippets out to random people in my life. What could be deemed as boring or complicated are presented in a fun and easy to follow way.Granted this copy being on an ereader is rather bad quality but I will without doubt be picking up a fo [...]
