The human brain is amazing in a double sense: it is exceptionally designed and capable of impressive achievements at the same time. This amazing book is dedicated, from the first page to the last, to explore this special mass lodged in our skull. It tells us about the different parts of the brain, their functions, how they communicate with each other and how they control the other parts of the body. It also talks about coordination, balance, memory and language, sensory perception, emotions, empathy, and the possibility of training our brain. The text and the many bullet-type illustrations explain all this in a clear, directed and structured way. The book conveys a wealth of information without overloading the pages or overwhelming the reader. Each chapter has invitations for simple, self-guided experiments. As we carry out these tests, for example, on our senses, our balance, or the ability to remember, we become aware of what happens in our "control center" and how this body is responsible for these achievements and abilities. .
