The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science - Norman Doidge This was far too Freudian for me (ALL masochists had childhood hospitalizations & learned there to fetishize pain) as well as entirely too full of anecdotes. I like my science more, well, sciencey. There were some interesting anecdotes, to be sure, but ultimately it was not what I was looking for.ETA: Um, yeah, I just NOW noticed the part of the title that references "stories of personal triumph" so it's my own damn fault. I hate "stories of personal triumph" as a rule.
