The Book I Just Finished

If anyone is interested in the workings of the brain and/or mind, particularly neuroplasticity, I just finished a great book. It is titled "The Brain That Changes Itself", by Norman Doidge, M.D.

You don't have to have a medical degree to understand it and it is extremely interesting. As someone who has suffered a brain injury, I am very interested and fascinated by the workings of the brain and the extent to which it is able to make adjustments or even rewire itself to a certain extent when necessary.

You might enjoy Invisible Driving, which is a memoir of manic depression written in real time, as the episode unfolds, from the point of view of the person having the episode.
