Fine account of the unfortunate man. The brain is a terrific place, in every sense of the word. ( )

Wow, this isn't a nice book. You probably wouldn't want to talk about it at the dinner table, but there are worse stories. But it is so amazing, such proof of how we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Warning: This book talks about blood and gore. Also chapter two is pure science. ( )

I picked this book up to read for task 6: Read a Biography (Not a Memoir or Autobiography) for the Book Riot's read harder challenge. I downloaded this book to my kindle from my library's ebooks. I found it by searching for biographies. Since I downloaded it without really getting to see the book, I didn't realize it was geared towards younger readers until I started reading it.

This book covers a portion of the life of Phineas Gage, a medical miracle who survived being skewered through the brain. His is a fascinating case that advanced our understanding of brain injuries. Unfortunately, although portions of his life are well documented, there are many gaps in his story. I really wanted to know more about him. This was definitely an interesting book and I think it would appeal to middle grade readers. ( )

This is a non-fiction novel about a man named Phineas Gage who had a hole in his head! What happened was Phineas was doing construction work when all of a sudden a thirteen pound rock went through his brain. Surprisingly, he survived and was able to live about another eleven years before he passed. Within that time, he became a case in the world of brain science. Phineas seemed as if he was perfectly fine after this incident, however doctors begged to differ. They said that before the accident he was dependable, but now he is "unrefined'. The book talks about how your brain works and how you act as human. What happened to Phineas still astonishes doctors and health practitioners today.
Honestly, this book was pretty interesting. What happened to Phineas was no joke. I mean a thirteen pound rock comes straight through your head yet you're still able to speak, walk, work, and travel. It's just fascinating really. I learned a lot about how the brain functions. This man was also just an ordinary railroad construction foreman. Who ever would've guessed that a rock would shoot through poor Phineas Gage's brain that day. On the bright side, if that never happened I wouldn't be sitting here writing a review on this book. ( )

"I said at the beginning that you decide for yourself what kind of luck he had at the end. This is what I think: Phineas Gage was lucky. His accident was terrible. It changed him into someone else, and yet Phineas figured out how to live as that new person for eleven years. He was limited in ways that are important to all human beings, but he found a way to live, working with horse. He took care of himself. He saw the world. He died with his family around him, the only people who knew both the old and new Phineas."
