The author of book “ Adventure Ahead”, hailing from the medical fraternity deftly fictionalized and dramatized each component of the limbic system or the human mid brain which is the power house of activity, the most complex systems of nature and how it must all work together to give the required output.
This book takes you on an interesting voyage of pictorially animated characters playing the role of the various components of the intrinsic brain system of the leading character Jojo. The story unfolds with the emotional outbursts of Jojo who is a fourteen year old lad. His feelings and actions while interacting with his parents, teachers & friends at school during his high school years are manifested by the coordinated activity of all structures within Jojo’s emotional motor system which in the story are illustrated using virtual characters journeying through his intricate limbic system. Dialogues of these characters are fun filled, laced with wit depicting the function of human psychology focusing on the interaction of mental processes and behavior on a systemic level intimately relating it to the understanding of emotional and behavioral responses in a layman’s lingo. It is a quick and enjoyable read and from a psycho-educational point, a must for all teenagers and teen parents. To sum it up, this book takes you on a roller coaster ride unraveling the intricate latent activities of a teen brain.
