Brains don't look like much, do they? A touch of slime here, some squishy grey stuff there. But in fact, your brain is more powerful than any supercomputer, and it is completely fascinating. Have you ever wondered why you're left-handed? Or why you have dreams? Or what causes pins and needles? I'll tell you what else: your brain is completely unique. That's right: no one else has a brain quite like yours. So if you want to learn how to make the most of YOUR brain, this is the book for you. It doesn't just explain how the brain works. It'll teach you how to train your brain to get better at stuff you find difficult. It'll show you how different people think in different ways and why that makes each person so special. It'll help you keep your mind happy and healthy. Because when that brilliant brain of yours is in tip-top condition, you can be the BEST version of you. You'll discover: - Why some skills come to you more easily than others - How to cope with knockbacks and improve on the difficult stuff - Why we feel certain emotions and how to manage the difficult ones - How to keep your brain in top condition for learning - Why looking after your mind is the key to growing up happy Including insights from neurodiverse young people, the book also features bright two-colour illustrations from David O'Connell and dyslexia-friendly design. NHS paediatrician and Sunday Times bestselling author of How to Grow Up and Feel Amazing, Dr Ranj, is here to inspire ALL young readers to love themselves, however their brains work.
