We were never born to read,”says Maryanne Wolf.”No specific genes ever dictated the reading of its developmentHuman beings have invented the reading of only a few thousand years agoAnd with this invention, we have modified the very organization of our brain, which has broadened the ways we have been able to think, which has modified the intellectual evolution of our species.In “Proust and Calmar”, Maryanne Wolf explores our brain’s almost miraculous ability to organise and reorganise themselves in response to external circumstances.It examines how this “open architecture”, the elasticity of our brain, helps and hinders humans in their attempts to learn to read and process written language.It also studies what happens to people whose brains make it difficult to acquire these skills, such as dyslexia.Wolf, a world of experts on brain reading, brings both a personal passion and skillful style, the history of brain reading.It’s a pop masterpiece of science on a subject that anyone who likes reading will be sure to find fascinating.
