Res ipsa loquitur

My favourite book in the library is probably So You Want To Be A Brain Surgeon?. My favourite journal is Experimental Brain Research, just for the title, but So You Want to Be A Brain Surgeon? is the best of the books. I like it because, once or twice, though it has been in precisely the right position on the shelves, students have come up to me on the desk and said they couldn't find it. So off I stroll to the shelves, and there it is, right where it's supposed to be. "Here it is", I smile. "So you want to be a brain surgeon?"
