This book is packed with information on the biological medical physical and socio cultural aspects of symmetry asymmetry and chirality and stories told with erudition and wit It is uniue in its kind Probably because there is no other book that contains similar material the author sometimes gives in to the temptation to overload his reader with every bit of information he can find on a particular aspect at times it is just too much even for a chirality afficionado like me Still a very valuable resource Weekend Language: Presenting with More Stories and Less PowerPoint erudition and wit It is uniue in its kind Probably because there is no other book that contains similar material the author sometimes gives in to the temptation to overload his reader with Business Secrets from the Bible: Spiritual Success Strategies for Financial Abundance every bit of information he can find on a particular aspect at times it is just too much The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden even for a chirality afficionado like me Still a very valuable resource

Chris McManus º 2 Free read Review ò PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free º Chris McManus Free read Right Hand Left Hand The Origins of Asymmetry in Brains Bodies Atoms and Cultures A labor of love and enthusiasm as well as deep scientific knowledge Right Hand Left Hand takes the reader on a trip through history around the world and into the cosmos to explore the place of handedness in nature and culture Chris McManus considers evidence from anthropology particle physics the history of medicine and the notebooks of Leonardo to answer uestions like Why are most people right handed Are left handed people cognitively d. I got to this book via Iain McGilchrist s The Master and the Emissary and came to it with high expectations which were disappointed to the extent that I didn t complete itLaterality is a deep and complex subject which McManus s book s sub title tells us plays out at molecular an anatomical and a cultural level Paragraph by paragraph McManus s book is very stimulating But he made it much too hard for this reader to follow the overall flow of the argument both within and across chapters His chatty writing style while likeable does not help There s no need for complex material to be serious in tone but where there s complexity I would prefer clarity over informality any dayIf you are professionally interested in laterality then perhaps you will get past or not even notice the flaws I found If like me you are an interested amateur then I would approach Right Hand Left Hand with at least one of the following trepidation a pencil and notebook to scribble together the flow of the argument as you go or a holiday where you can get through the whole thing uickly enough not to lose the thread from one chapter to the nextIt s a great shame as the author very clearly both knows his stuff and is deeply excited and inspired by it But poor editing is poor editing

Chris McManus º 2 Free read Review ò PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free º Chris McManus Free read Right Hand Left Hand The Origins of Asymmetry in Brains Bodies Atoms and Cultures L imbued with moral and religious meaning in societies throughout history and suggests that our preoccupation with laterality may originate in our asymmetric bodies which emerged from 550 million years of asymmetric vertebrate evolution and may even be linked to the asymmetric structure of matter With speculations embedded in science Right Hand Left Hand offers entertainment and new insight to scientists and general readers alike 2002091. Erudite fascinating well organized and clear Right Hand Left Hand is the authoritative book on left right asymmetry The book can sometimes seem an eclectic tour through various intellectual disciples but the ostensible topics of each chapter biology cultural anthropology chemistry fundamental physics etc are just the backdrop for the investigation of a deeper mystery What is this deeper mystery Well it s spelled out in the subtitle The ORIGINS of Asymmetry McManus doesn t highlight this as forcefully as he ought to but one might say the fundamental axiom of the book is a dictum attributed to the physicist Pierre Curie all asymmetric results must have asymmetric origins Put another way you can t build an asymmetric object from asymmetric subunits But what is the definition of asymmetry Well an asymmetric object is non identical to its mirror image while a symmetric object is However the type of handedness of an object s subunits doesn t predict that the object will have that same handedness but rather that is will have a handedness For instance even though the building blocks of our proteins are left handed the proteins themselves are not all left handed about half are right handed The books traces the asymmetry of sub atomic particles to the asymmetry of our biological molecules to the asymmetry of our body to the asymmetry in our culture This chain of attribution of asymmetry from the micro to the macro is very compelling McManus also puts forward a theoretical genetic model of some of our boy s asymmetry including handedness and the side of the brain that is language dominant I think this model is far too bold and the rationale he provides is unconvincing Still spellbinding book Read it
