While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction. 

 

 

 

DNF: The Brain That Changes Itself

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science - Norman Doidge

While the concept of Neuroplasticity - the ability of brains to continue to change even in adulthood - is fascinating, this book is less so.  I felt like the author was trying to emulate Oliver Sacks to use case studies as a way to tell the history of the change in paradigm from a localized adult brain to the possibility of change, but not quite getting there.

 

 

I skidded out in Chapter 4 Acquiring Tastes and Loves - what Neuroplasticity Teaches us about Sexual Attraction and Love.  And since the book is due back at the library, I'm going to officially DNF and move on to more interesting (fiction) and my next Booklikes-opoly read.
