DEBATE

A eureka-inspiring book that will change your view of the world as you know it.

In this compilation of the biggest scientific discoveries of the last decades, Pere Estupinyà clearly and thoughtfully explains to his readers the most innovative ideas sprouting from the world's top scientists' brains... How does the brain act when we are hung-over? Can we trick our body into falling in love?

What's the world going to be like in thirty years? All of this, and much more, is explained in this indispensable book for science lovers and the curious-minded.

In The Brain Snatcher, the author accesses the world's most prestigious laboratories in order to steal the knowledge of this century's heroes -scientists- and share it with his readers. Through entertaining stories, the reader gets acquainted with the hottest debates in neuroscience, cosmology, genetics, human psychology, sociology of science, and climate change.

Moreover, the brain snatcher follows the flu virus through the body; steps into a brain scanner to check if it's capable of detecting his own lies; delves into the frictions between religion and creationism; asks his own hormones why he falls in love; surrenders to the Chaos theory, and sees how disastrous the brain is when it comes to making a thorough decision. He also gets to understand why his pupils dilate when he is having an orgasm; finds the origins of superstitions, analyzes why magazines like Science or Nature make more mistakes than other so-called minor magazines, discovers the reasons that can lead an endearing scientist to keep on investigating until he is 96, and goes crazy trying to figure out what things like antimatter or quantum entanglement are. A buffet of knowledge for those without a science degree, but who are curious about the whys, whats and hows of science!
