Good Solid Science Writing,

This review is from: Brain Cuttings: Fifteen Journeys Through the Mind (Kindle Edition)
This is a good, but short, introduction to the current state of neuroscience and its beginnings of figuring out the human brain. Carl Zimmer is always a careful science journalist and uncovers research into the brain from several scientists. There seems to be several recent books on this subject and some of these essays overlap those books and other essays appear to be the first exposure of certain brain phenomena. One recommendation for those who wish to read more about brain research should read "The Tell-Tale Brain" by V.S. Ramachandran.
If you are a fan of Carl Zimmer, he has published a number of wonderful books and magazine articles about various science area. His writings are always delightful to read.
