Summary
Everything we think, do, and refrain from doing is determined by our brain. It shapes our potential, our limitations, and our characters. In other words, we don't just have brains; we are our brains. Here, the author explains what is going on in our brains at every stage of life, from the womb to what happens when we fall in love or get Alzheimer's
