A graphic novel version of a simple text on how the brain works. A man falls into a human brain and has to find his way out, past neuron forests, memory caves, ninja neurotransmitters, and other analogies. He is guided by images of the great brain researchers (Golgi, Cajal, Sherrington, Berger, etc.). The book reminds me of the sort of things that Larry Gonick has done (e.g., *The Cartoon History of the Universe.*). This might be useful as background if you are taking a class that includes brain physiology or otherwise want to know these details. The book is sort of entertaining; but I don’t know how much will stick in my head with one reading.

It does have the distinct advantage of being *short*, however. And some of the younger people seem to reject any book that is *not* in a cartoon format.

The topic of the brain is interesting. The drawings are very crude and basic which takes away from the information that is being explained.
