The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science - Norman Doidge The first couple chapters of this book were really, really interesting to me. But by the end, I felt like it was getting a bit repetitive and I could kind of figure out the stories before he finished telling them because they all follow the same basic theme - these people showed that their brains grew by having some disability and then overcoming that disability. (Obviously that oversimplifies it quite a bit.)In the end, very interesting book if you're interested in the brain/body, but you definitely do not need to be in the field to understand it.
