OJAI, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Strange facts, fun puzzles, and personality quizzes are like steroids for your brain.

The human brain needs to be fed, and with his book Brain Candy: Science, Paradoxes, Logic, And Illogic To Nourish Your Neurons (Three Rivers Press), Garth Sundem gives info that’s “delicious and nutritious” for the most powerful organ in the body.

In his research, Sundem discovered that the old noodle grows new neurons when presented with “fun, new, and fascinating information” so he made it his goal to fill the book with so much interesting stuff, readers’ brains will be totally pumped up.

He adds, “You will walk away from the book smarter. It’s a fun read that is also going to make your neurons crackle.”

So knowing that shoe leather can stop an epileptic seizure, discovering what your email says about your personality, and ranking characters from Robin Hood in order of goodness can make people brainier.
