My Opinion:
I was excited to get this book for review, but feel it let me down a little. When seeing the description, it's the interesting factoids that appeals to me. We all want to know what our favorite celebrities are into, what colors they like, what hobbies they have..... that sort of thing. While it had this information in it, I really felt like it wasn't enough. Not personal enough. Strange when you learn of their heritage, birth and education and still feel it's impersonal, but that is my end impression. 
I appreciated the information that was given, most of it is common and available knowledge, while a couple things were new to me. 
The caricatures were great, very artistic indeed. Though on a few I didn't see the likeness, I still have a couple I think were spot on like George Clooney and Whoopi Goldberg. 
The last criticism I have to give is in expressionism. Where the author wrote, "when a child", I would have used, "as a child". 
I admit, this is a book I don't think I'll be recommending. It just fell flat for me, sorry.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
