Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Reading progress update: I've read 97 out of 407 pages.

The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons: And Other True Stories of Trauma, Madness, Affliction, and Recovery That Reveal the Surprising History of the Human Brain - Sam Kean

I'm doing a buddy read of this with Hunger for Knowledge over on GR.  I figured I should copy the status updates over here since I doubt I'll ever remember I did them over on GR.


First three chapters in, and I'm really enjoying the writing. I love almost all things science but neuroscience can be a hard slog; Kean has made it incredibly interesting, using anecdotes to illustrate how the brain is mapped. His illustrative style of writing has already cemented a few things in my own head that I always had trouble remembering. Also, he totally got me on the Homan story; did not see that coming.
