The Accidental Mind: How Brain Evolution Has Given Us Love, Memory, Dreams, and God is a new book by David Linden.  It seeks to explain how brain evolution has given rise to those qualities that most profoundly shape our human experience.  With The Accidental Mind, Linden’s exploration of the brain and its functions engagingly encompasses sex, politics and religion-all once said to be best avoided in polite discussion. A professor of neuroscience at Hopkins’ School of Medicine, Linden has produced a book on the brain that doesn’t muddle the mind.

Join Dr. Linden for a reading, discussion and book signing and learn about the organ that he refers to as the “Hummer H2 of the body”-weighing 2 percent of total body weight and using 20 percent of its energy.
