It slows down a bit for a couple hundred pages in the middle of the book, but overall is a good read.

The Compass of Pleasure: How Our Brains Make Fatty Foods, Orgasm, Exercise, Marijuana, Generosity, Vodka, Learning, and Gambling Feel So Good by David J. Linden
Pretty interesting book that discusses the biological and neurological factors involved in different types od addiction.
The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human by V.S. Ramachandran
I loved this one! It discusses different functions that the human brain has that don't seem present in other species (e.g. language, introspection, among others) and explains how studies dealing with a variety of patients, including those with mental disorders that they were born with or resulted from accidents, shed light to how the brain might have evolved to allow these unique human functions.
And I am currently reading this one. So far, so good.

Just finished Dune, it was pretty great. Are the other Dune books worth reading?

You can continue with Dune Messiah and Children of Dune, both of which are pretty good. I remember liking Children quite a bit.

Without a doubt, the best KING in a dogs age. Like all good King, you grip the pages hoping that things don't unfold the way you know they are going to. Characters you care DEEPLY about. Yeah, like most of his work...peters out towards the ending, but it JUST DON'T MATTER. Had such a hard time reading anything since that I have had to go to the latest Hap'n'Leonard book from Joe R. Lansdale. And...that'll do.
