More about the book!
Unthinkable: An Extraordinary Journey through the World’s Strangest Brains by Helen Thomson is out now from Jonathan Ball Publishers.
Imagine getting lost in a one-room flat, seeing auras, never forgetting a moment, a permanent orchestra in your head, turning into a tiger, life as an out-of-body experience, feeling other people’s pain, being convinced you are dead, becoming a different person overnight …
Our brains are far stranger than we think. We take it for granted that we can remember, feel emotion, navigate, empathise and understand the world around us, but how would our lives change if these abilities were dramatically enhanced – or disappeared overnight?
Award-winning science writer Helen Thomson has spent years traveling the world tracking down incredibly rare brain disorders. In Unthinkable she tells the stories of nine extraordinary people.
