alumni UBC Online Book Club August book selection: Your Brain, Explained, by Dr. Marc Dingman

Book Club

We have created an online book club exclusively for UBC alumni, focusing on lifelong learning, leadership, harnessing creativity, communication skills and much, much more. The book club will connect through a private forum where alumni can discuss the current book and connect with each other.

The Next Online Book Club Selection

From memory and language to insomnia and depression, discover how your most essential organ works in Your Brain, Explained, by neuroscientist Dr. Marc Dingman.  

While what happens in your grey matter affects you every day, do you understand how your brain operates? And why it sometimes doesn’t work the way it should? Allow Dr. Marc Dingman, known for his popular YouTube series “2-Minute Neuroscience,” to guide you through the brain functions that affect your daily life. Drawing upon real-life examples and the latest research, Your Brain, Explained: What Neuroscience Reveals About Your Brain and its Quirks unlocks the mysteries of the mind.


Read and discuss Dr. Marc Dingman’s engrossing tour of the human brain with the alumni UBC Book Club, beginning on August 2. 

This event is part of the alumni UBC Summer Series. Thank you to our presenting sponsor Odlum Brown.

Joining the book club is completely free. You just have to pick up a copy of the book—at your library, UBC Bookstore (save 12% with your Alumni Card), or online—to enjoy. The group will read one book every two months, so you will have plenty of time to read.

Plus, you don’t have to commit to reading every book—we’re not grading you.
