Faith Hickman Brynie is the author of 14 books on science and health topics. Several of her books have won recognition as "Best of the Year" from the American Association for the Advancement of Science; as "Children's Choice Selection" from the International Reading Association; and inclusion on the New York Public Library's "Books for the Teen Age" honor list.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-10-Beginning with "18 Questions That Should Come First," such as "Is a Headache Really a Brainache?" this volume answers basic inquiries about the brain's structure and function in a lively, sometimes humorous way. The question-and-answer format will hold readers' interest. The layout is uncluttered and easy on the eyes. In spite of the lighthearted approach, Byrnie includes plenty of factual information and scientific background; she addresses topics such as the latest research on how drugs affect the brain, mental illness, epilepsy, and memory. Clear and helpful monochromatic diagrams punctuate the text, along with a few decorative black-and-white photos. A clear and lively addition that incorporates much of what scientists have learned about the brain in the last 10 years.
