Helen Thomson

In Unthinkable, Helen Thomson tells the stories of nine people with highly unusual brains. One thinks he’s a tiger. Another actually feels the pain of others. A third sees auras. Thomson follows these astounding people as they live their everyday lives, providing insight into what’s happening in our own brains as she does so, and encouraging us to rethink the “unthinkable.” As The Times has written, “Helen Thomson is the science teacher you wish you’d had at school.”
