“The Baffling Case of the Battered Brain is a book that is sure to spark a young reader’s lifelong fascination with the brain”
– Christopher Nowinksi, former WWE Superstar & author of Head Games
“Getting right to the point, I loved this book. In fact, I love the entire series of Galactic Academy of Science (GAS) books. They are written for young people, but they are not childish.  The GAS books use the correct scientific language and concepts, but explain them in a way that anyone can understand. I also love how the series weaves real people, places and events into the story lines with special sections that supply additional information about things mentioned in the story. All of the books are educational and well as interesting. This story specifically, spans 4,500 years of history and covers the entire globe as the two student detectives try to solve a mysterious event that happened at their school. Through their investigation, the reader meets and learns about the actual people who made real contributions to science and medicine across the centuries. The great thing about this book is that it connects these technical issues to real life. I am not a doctor, but I found the book and the story it presents, absolutely fascinating and you and your child will too.”
