Great Myths of The Brain

Christian’s second sole authored book, Great Myths of The Brain, was published in 2014. Translated from English into Spanish, Chinese, Turkish, Polish, Arabic and Korean, critics were united in their praise. It’s ‘always smart, often humorous’ said the best-selling author and neuroscientist Maria Konnikova, and will ‘equip you with the tools you need to understand both the power and the limitations of your own mind’. Best-selling author and Atlantic journalist Ed Yong said ‘Christian Jarrett writes about the latest discoveries in neuroscience with wonderful clarity, while cleanly puncturing myths and misinformation’. Ben Goldacre put it most succinctly: ‘A masterful catalogue of neurobollocks’.
