About the Author:

JoAnn Deak, Ph.D., is an author and an international speaker, educator, and preventive psychologist. She also works with parents, teachers, and other adults who work with children as a consultant to schools worldwide on issues of brain development and gender equality. She is also the author of the award-winning book, Your Fantastic Elastic Brain.

Terrence Deak, Ph.D. is a Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience at Binghamton University in upstate New York, where he runs a highly active neuroscience laboratory. Dr. Deak and his wife, Molly, have 3 inquisitive boys (Wyatt, Owen, and Oscar) who are extremely interested in how their brains work, just like you. Together, they enjoy a plethora of outdoor activities, travel, and learning something new every day.

Freya Harrison began drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil (so her mum says). Since then she's graduated with a BA in Graphic and Media Design from University of the Arts, London and has been doodling pictures for books, magazines, festivals, and brands ever since. She works and lives in London amongst a small mountain of comics, records, and sharpies. Find Freya's work on the web at www.freyaillustration.co.uk.

From Booklist:

In their introduction, the Deaks use the analogy of learning to drive a car to describe how their book is going to help adolescents learn to drive their brains. The idea of a car owner’s manual is quite apt, since the two PhDs take readers on a hard-science tour of the physical makeup of the brain and offer ways to better understand, protect, and improve it. Though the authors are initially heavy with terms like neuron, axon, and corpus callosum, they work hard to not alienate the less scientifically inclined by using a friendly, reassuring manner and frequent references to invitingly familiar things, such as sports and music. Harrison’s warm illustrations help considerably, featuring smiling adolescents interacting with enlarged parts of the brain’s geography or playing guitar, and these pictures situate the reading audience comfortably at the lower end of adolescence. With recommendations for exercising and working hard, a section devoted entirely to puberty, a glossary, and further-reading suggestions, this is a well-rounded primer that will help adolescents and delight (and potentially educate) their parents. Grades 4-6. --Jesse Karp
