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.

    " excellent intro! wide range of subjects, but only 2 pages on each "

    " Fascinating and very fun! I love the abbreviated "60-second science" approach. Each topic is only 2 short pages and is broken up into 3 sections: The Basics, On the Frontier, and Cocktail Party Tidbits. Need gift ideas for a hard-to-shop-for man? This would be a great bathroom book! "

    " I read an advance copy of this a while ago. The breezy tone was sometimes genuinely funny, sometimes forced. Although I don't remember much I learned, it's a fun book to have on hand when you have a few minutes to kill. "
