CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 'On a planet in which everything seems to be getting bigger (the internet), hotter (our climate) or more numerous (the world's population), Gary Lynch and Rick Granger reveal the intriguing possibility that people with larger brains than us may have been around a few thousand years ago. Their account of the mysteries of the brain and intelligence challenges conventional views in a scholarly yet wonderfully accessible manner' - Prof. Richard Morris, Director, Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems, University of Edinburgh, UK, President, Federation of European Neuroscience Societies, Former chair, Brain Research Association of the United Kingdom 'The Lynch and Grainger combination is like mixing gas with fire. In this book there are big, explosive ideas by two ingenious brain scientists' - Michael Gazzaniga, author of The Ethical Brain 'The brain makes all our hopes, dreams, and fears possible. How did it come to be this way? Look no further than this book. This fascinating and provocative account of the human brain's recent past reminds us that the thing that makes us who we are is a continuously changing organ, and begs the question of where our species is headed next' -- Joseph LeDoux, author of The Emotional Brain 'I've been waiting for someone to write this book for years. I almost wrote it myself, twice, but was distracted by other projects. Now Gary Lynch and Richard Granger have written a much-needed book on big brains' -William H Calvin, New Scientist
