Publisher's Summary

Did you know that only five percent of all your decisions are consciously made? Most decisions are made by the subconscious brain, perhaps this factually explains why humans are prone to rash judgment. Read on to discover more facts that can aid not only your structural and functional understanding of the brain but also help improve your cognitive skills.

The human brain is nothing less of a confounding conundrum that has baffled the likes of me for centuries. I, as a researcher, have always been fascinated by the brain’s idiosyncratic ability to not only comprehend its own being but also drive the curiosity regarding it. Owing to this fascination, I have dedicated a significant amount of time studying the old and new studies regarding the functioning and the structure of the brain. It was only in those hours of untethered exploration of my curiosity that I realized how common misconceptions about the brain could have profound detrimental implications, and thus this audiobook was born. I aim to debunk not only commonly held myths but also make scientific findings accessible to all.

In this audiobook, you shall find:

  • Over 290 jaw dropping facts and trivia questions which have been divided into 148 facts and 147 trivia questions
  • About 72 facts exploring the complex brain structure
  • Six facts outlining the nutritional needs of the brain
  • Twenty-one facts highlighting the potential harms of brain trauma and injuries
  • Forty-four facts focusing on novel brain discoveries
  • Facts based on new studies and researches
  • Debunking common myths and misconceptions
  • A trivia that allows for reflection
  • Facts featured range from brain anatomy to physiology
  • Scientific findings made comprehensible for all

Let yourself discover all that this excellent audiobook has to offer by scrolling up and clicking the “buy now” button now!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Really fascinating!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. There is so much to learn about the brain and it’s all fascinating. What I really like about this book is it makes learning about the brain fun. Science may not be your thing but this book doesn’t make it sound/feel like a boring science book. I love the quizzes which help reinforce what was learned. Very good book!

Very informative and entertaining

Thank you to Sophia Cantrell for this new Brain Facts book! The narration was excellent, and the transition music/cues gave me all the time I needed to guess my answers. I listened to this in the car, and it was perfect entertainment for what would've been a boring car trip.

Some great new information.

Tons of great knowledge. A lot of trivia knowledge in such a small time frame. The narrator was a little boring for my taste.

Fascinating and Fun!

My teen daughter and I drive across town every day on our commute and we loved listening to this. The brain is something we all should know more about, since we all have one, and this was both educational and fun! I feel like my daughter and I bond over the audiobooks we listen to together and this one was very well made. Both the content and the narration were very well done and the music added a nice touch. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for an entertaining and educational listen.

Brain Exercise

As we get older, our brains become less active because our past programs us. There are many ways we can hone our mental sharpness and help our brain stay healthy, no matter what age we are. Doing specific brain exercises to help boost our memory, concentration, and focus can make daily tasks quicker and easier and keep our brains sharp as we get older. This audio helped me do exactly that.

Well Written

This book has a hundred plus facts about the human brain. It also has trivia questions to go along with the fact. It made me know some of the things I don’t know about the brain, and it also points my attention to so many things I have taken for granted about the human brain. The author did his due diligence research to have arrived at these facts. It is a good book to listen to. I would recommend it.

Loved it!

I will be honest. I didn't think I needed this book, but I listened to it anyway and I am glad I did. Don't judge me, but I held about 40% of the myths the author seeks to burst in this book. If you think that's many, I dare you to read it for yourself and see if you don't have the same number or more. The author wanted to make scientific findings accessible and I think she has succeeded. So glad I listened to this book.

This audiobook is loaded with interesting facts!

If you’re interested in the brain and how it functions then this is the audiobook for you. These facts are objective and fascinating! Some very technical but it’s a good mix so easy to understand. Clearly read out and with a brief musical interlude in between each fact, I can only give it 5 stars!
