I read Understand by Ted Chiang this morning. It's a short story about a comatose patient who gets a new experimental neurogenerative drug, that not only heals him but gives him super human intellect.

It explores the inner experience of mind and the meta-cognitive abilities that might fall out of this kind of thing - eg the ability to tune one's personality. Super good.

Ted Chiang is great. If you liked that I think you’ll dig his Stories of Your Life and Others https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/223380
