Brain-Storm: When the Mind Becomes the Ultimate Weapon by David K. Brown is a compelling story about a scientific experiment gone awry and what it implies. The idea of the study of Daniel Jefferies is a brilliant one and readers will find it very interesting. Daniel is an exceedingly happy person, even in the midst of the worst of life's vicissitudes, but what is most interesting is the way he affects people who come into contact with him. It is no secret that there is something peculiar about him, a gift, a power, but what if that power can be tapped and used for the benefit of everyone? Brain-Storm tells the story of what happens when scientists decide to carry out the study on Daniel Jefferies.

Masterfully written, David K. Brown's Brain-Storm: When the Mind Becomes the Ultimate Weapon underscores powerful points about human nature. In trying to harness Daniel's skill, scientists unleash the demon in him, a reaction that comes across as a strong warning that there is a mysterious part of the human being, the sacred part of him that should not be tampered with. The characters are well created and will remind readers of some of the greedy people they must have come across in life. The conflict starts at the very beginning of the story and only gets more complicated as the story progresses. I enjoyed the dialogue and the tension the entire story makes the reader feel. David K. Brown is a gifted storyteller. This is a very entertaining read for lovers of sci-fi.
