Two brains?
Some things that we have been learning have been interesting for me. The one that really was kind of a shock to me was on chapter 2, page 68. The idea of having two brains. I was amazed by the stories of those people. Especially about the one that says that if the man holds a book in his right hand, he would read it, but if he hold it with the left hand he didn’t feel like reading anymore.
