Forget the Frontal Lobe


In June, I reported that I was disappointed that a podcast from Moira Gunn was so short. The interview was with Katrina Firlik about her book Another Day in the Frontal Lobe. The interview had several fascinating stories that left me wanting more.

So, I bought the book. I was disappointed again. The book was mostly about medical school and the rigors of residency. Fine stuff if you're interested in that, but I was looking for more stories about the brain and how it works. They're there, but it wasn't what I was expecting. My advice: listen to the IT Conversations interview. It's cheaper and faster. Can't beat that!
