LIFE LESSONS FROM A BRAIN SURGEON BY RAHUL JANDIAL
I have read so many books on the brain and neuroscience that sometimes I wrongly start assuming that I know a lot about the brain. Then, I find another great, hidden gem book on the brain. I read it, and find out that I still know nothing about the brain. The book in this review is a gem, but it is not hidden. 'Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon' by Dr. Rahul Jandial is a very popular book and a well-known bestseller.
Dr. Rahul Jandial is a renowned neurosurgeon wich decades of experience in medical and surgical treatments of cancer affecting the brain, spinal cord, spine, and a bestselling author of various books. In 'Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon', Dr. Rahul Jandial tells about some curious and really exciting things that happened during his practice as a neurosurgeon. This is not a biography of Rahul Jandial, neither it is a book dedicated to the study of the brain and its functions. Dr. Rahul Jandial picked some of the most bizarre things that reveal some information on the functioning of the brain. Through different stories from his professional practice, the author shares a lot of interesting knowledge on the brain and its functioning.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is written in a very simple and readable style. The personality of the author is also very appealing. During the narrations in the book, Dr. Rahul Jandial never goes off-topic, and always follows the main topic of this awesome book. This is not the most informative book on the brain, but I liked it because it includes two main elements that make non-fiction books captivating: a very entertaining and warm style of the narration, and second, some interesting knowledge and information.
I highly recommend this book to people with different literature tastes. Even if you find non-fiction books cold and boring, you will find that 'Life Lessons from a Brain Surgeon' is a different non-fiction book that is both interesting to read and it supplies your curiosity with a lot of new information and knowledge. The book is not very big, and therefore, it won't take much time to finish it. Great read. I will anticipate more brainy masterpieces from Dr. Rahul Jandial.
