  • The Secret Life of the Mind

    How Your Brain Thinks, Feels, and Decides

    A provocative, enthralling journey into the depths of the human mind

    "Every year 20,000 papers are presented at the annual meeting of the society for neuroscience yet we don't have tentative answers to even 'simple' questions, such as why we sing, laugh, dance, or cry -- let alone the lofty question of how a pack of neurons gives rise to consciousness and sense of self. Amidst the din and chaos of empirical data that threatens to deluge us, it is refreshing to see a 'big picture' book that attempts to tackle such issues. In attempting this the author takes us on grand tour covering an extraordinarily diverse range of topics that are of interest to the common people and specialists alike." - V. S. Ramachandran, author of The Tell-Tale Brain
