Promotional Information

An Odd Kind of Fame is a meticulously researched and fascinating chapter in the history of neuroscience. It tells the story of Phineas Gage -- perhaps the most famous brain-injured person -- whose fate has been continually interpreted and misinterpreted ever since an iron rod passed through his brain in 1848. -- Charles G. Gross, Professor of Psychology, Princeton University This fascinating book is as compelling as a detective story. I could not put it down, and I learned so much. It is a brilliant combination of serious scholarship and popular history that will surely attract many readers. -- Michael Ruse, Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy, FloridaState University
