'A fascinating, funny, disconcerting and lucid book.' Helen Dunmore Perhaps your brain seems to stumble when faced with the 13 times table, or persistently fails to master parallel parking.

But you're in control of it, right? Sorry. Think again. Dotted with popular explanations of the latest research and fascinating real-life examples, psychologist Cordelia Fine tours the less salubrious side of human psychology.

She shows that the human brain is in fact stubborn, emotional and deceitful, teaching you everything you always wanted to know about the brain - and plenty you probably didn't.
