Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book takes an unconventional and playful approach to a subject that is usually deemed to be difficult and complex . . . . It can be enjoyed by professionals in the field and anyone else interested in learning some of the basics in neuroscience. . . . [A] pleasure to read.” (International Journal of Psychotherapy)

“This small book carries a lot of punch.” (The Person-Centered Journal)

“[A] quick, entertaining, and simple way to learn about the brain. . . . It is also a suitable format for quick flips while waiting at the doctor’s office, waiting for a train, waiting in line, etc. If you are suffering from information overload, this book is a nice change of pace for learning about the nervous system in short bursts of reading.” (Whose Brain Is It)

“This book combines my love of the brain and love of words and poetry in such an enjoyable and informational manner. You can use these Haiku as topic or class starters, as clarification, or as a lesson in itself about a term. . . . Do get this book – it’s a great addition to your arsenal of classroom teaching tools.” (Teaching High School Psychology)

“[A]n innovative way to learn some facts about neuroscience . . .” (The Lancet Neurology)

“This is an unusual presentation which quietly marries Japanese verse with simple neuroscientific topics. . . . I found it a worthwhile addition to my library.” (Treasure Time: Reviews of Psychological Novels)

“[C]ould potentially be a powerful impetus for undergraduate, graduate, medical, and younger learners of neurobiology.” (Frontiers in Neurology)

“Short little poems
Neuroscience ideas
Tied together here.” (Janet M. Dubinsky, PhD, Professor of Neuroscience, University of Minnesota)

The Little Book of Neuroscience Haiku is yet another medium that Eric Chudler has successfully employed to bring basic concepts of neuroscience to a broad public audience. This book will be an invaluable resource to neuroscientists to describe the mysteries of the brain to people outside―and within―the field.” (William Cameron, PhD; Associate Professor, Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health & Science University)

About the Author

Eric H. Chudler, PhD, is the executive director of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering and a neuroscientist at the University of Washington. He hosts the popular Web site Neuroscience for Kids and lives in Seattle, Washington.

Fun haiku with explanations that actually teach you! And it's a size you can carry around, read while you're in the neurologist's office, for instance.

Bought this as a stocking stuffer for my son-in-law, a newly minted Ph.D., who just moved himself and my daughter across country to pursue post-doc research. It is a cleverly written little book and who knew that neuroscience could offer such fertile field for Haiku! We shared a long-distance laugh over just a few succinct syllables.
