This book tells how's the brain's functioning and how does it related to educator. It is illustrated, simple, and clear for non-science major teachers/educators. However, it might be too simple for teachers/educators who have science background. It doesn't provide too many references or support but it does give some nice suggestion to teachers/educators.

This book is easy to understand with straight-forward language and concepts about the brain. A must-read for teachers, especially those with gifted students in the regular classroom setting.
