Your Brain on Facts Things You Didn’t Know, Things You Thought You Knew, and Things You Never Knew You Never Knew By Moxie LaBouche from Mango Media. Isaac Newton stuck a needle in his eye? Traditional Chinese medicine helped develop a cure for malaria? James Dean’s Porche 550 Spyder is cursed? (like really, really cursed?) Your brain on Facts is full of mystifying, novel, and entertaining content that will have you peppering anyone nearby with newly learned facts from the first page to the last!
Moxie LaBouche, the mind behind the Your Brain on Facts podcast, does not hold back her knowledge in short, easy-to-read chunks. The book explains surprising science in simple language, gives the unexpected origins of pop culture classics and reveals important tidbits related to current issues.
