I have to take the chance to recommend two completely different books about the brain that you can learn much from.

The first one is the book “My Stroke of Insight” written by Jill Bolte Taylor. She is a brain scientist that at age 38 has a stroke and the book are about her experience of claiming her life back by training her brain to make new connections to her memory, and between the right and left hemisphere. It is easy to read and indeed interesting.

The other book is “Why men don’t listen and Women can’t read maps” by Allan and Barbara Pease. It is written as a relationship book, but they have looked into all research they could find about the brain. The result is interesting since it shows that men’s and women’s brain are different. Something we should take in account when it comes to teaching.
