Everything we think, do and refrain from doing is determined by our brain. From religion to sexuality, it shapes our potential, our desires and our characters. Taking us through every stage in our lives, from the womb to falling in love to old age, Dick Swaab shows that we don't just have brains: we are our brains. "A blockbuster about the brain ...provocative, fascinating, remarkable." (Clive Cookson, Financial Times). "A giant in the field." (Zoe Williams, Guardian). "Engrossing, intriguing and enlightening." (Robin Ince). "Enchantingly written." (The Times Higher Education). "Wide-ranging, fun and informative ...as an ice-breaker at parties, it is unmatched." (Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times).
