Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain by David Eagleman

If the conscious mind--the part you consider to be you--is just the tip of the iceberg, what is the rest doing?  In this sparkling and provocative book, renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman navigates the depths of the subconscious brain to illuminate its surprising mysteries. Why can your foot move halfway to the brake pedal before you become consciously aware of danger ahead? Is there a true Mel Gibson? How is your brain like a conflicted democracy engaged in civil war? What do Odysseus and the subprime mortgage meltdown have in common? Why are people whose names begin with J more like to marry other people whose names begin with J? And why is it so difficult to keep a secret? 



A Storm of Swords - Book three in the series by Georget R. R. Martin
