...and I read it two weeks ago, enjoyed it tremendously, and
recommended it to an intelligent nonscientist friend.  It's a
reasonably detailed yet friendly intro to functional neuroanatomy, for
people who don't want to read something too textbookish.

For people who have already read the textbooks, this book contains
anecdotes that won't be found elsewhere.  I teach an undergraduate
course in physiological psychology, and I'm gonna make sure I mention
the temporal-lobe Led Zeppelin area.
