Two Heads: A Graphic Exploration of How Our Brains Work with Other Brains

by Uta Frith Author, Chris Frith Author and Daniel Locke Illustrator

In this brilliant and accessible graphic guide to neuroscience, follow along with husband and wife author team Uta and Chris Frith as they explore the nooks and crannies of our brains. Explaining and examining everything from why and how we feel and think in the ways that we do, to neurodiversity, the Friths ultimately turn their attention to what happens when two brains come into contact with each other. How is that we communicate effectively given that every brain works so differently? Is it better to surround ourselves with people similar to ourselves or radically different? What happens to our brains during a conversation? With gorgeous and humorous illustrations from Daniel Locke, Two Heads is a great addition to any middle or high school classroom or library, and an excellent gift for anyone with a burning curiosity about how our bodies and brains work.
