It was a nice surprise to have this land on my desk, as the content of this book is from a magazine, Inside the Human Body, that I used to edit in the 1990s. Featuring the text and illustrations that I originally commissioned (plus a few photos that I took myself), the section of the magazine that dealt with the function and physiology of the brain has now been repackaged as a stand-alone book: How the Brain Works.
This change in format meant that text had been reflowed, occasionally getting a bit mangled in the process, and the captions and annotations were also sometimes mixed up. I checked the proofs, correcting errors and typos where they occurred, getting the publication ready for printing. As I understand it, How the Brain Works will be on sale in the spring of 2015.
