Two Heads: A Graphic Exploration of How Our Brains Work with Other Brains
by Uta Frith, Chris Frith, Christopher D. Frith, Alex Frith, Daniel Locke
When I first picked this book to review, I was fooled by the title of “Two Heads” as I thought it was going to discuss the theory of right brain versus left brain.
Instead, I was treated to a really interesting voyage through experimental psychology with two worthy guides: Drs Uta and Chris Firth. Don’t let the idea of a comic book put you off as this is an ebook densely packed with psychological theories of how we interact with other human beings.
I was particularly interested in the research that Dr Uta Firth conducted in autism becoming an expert in the field. I have quite a few friends who fall onto the autistic spectrum, so that part of the book really helped me understand where some of my friends are coming from.
I wouldn’t call this book an easy read, in fact, it will take a lot of your concentration to follow some of the theories presented. But if your interest lies within the realm of psychology, you will definitely find it worth your while.
[Thank you to NetGalley and the author for the advanced ebook copy in exchange for my honest and objective opinion which I have given here.]
