Faith Hickman Brynie, author of Brain Sense

Faith Hickman Brynie has written 25 science and health books for children, teens, and adults. Her latest book, Brain Sense: The Science of the Senses and How We Process the World Around Us, is full of engaging interviews, fascinating stories, and a highly accessible presentation of hard science. Brynie also picks apart a few of our outdated ideas and mistaken assumptions.

When she was still a student, this quote from neuroscientist Richard Restak changed Brynie's life: "The human brain is the only organ in the known universe that seeks to understand itself." (Think about that for a while!)
