A follow-up to the bestseller "Look Me In the Eye," about the cutting-edge brain therapy that sparked one man's emotional awakening. John Elder Robison shares the second part of his journey, taking us to the edge of scientific discovery as he undergoes an experimental brain therapy known as TMS, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. The transformation he experienced turned his world upside down - he could suddenly sense others' feelings. John's newfound insight causes him to question his relationships, and even his memories. As the emotional ground shifts beneath his feet, he must find a way to move forward without losing sight of who he is, what he values, and all he has worked so hard for. Robison is our guinea pig and our guide, leading us on an adventure that holds the key to new ways of thinking about the mysteries of the human brain. Print run 50,000.
