From a distinguished teacher and scholar, this beautifully illustrated and lucidly written book reveals the beauty of the organ that makes us uniquely human.
[A] solid, instructional book, layered and in-folded like the brain itself, with channels for both the curious layman and the more intrepid student. The rewards are great. The reader comes away with the best kind of knowledge, aware of what neuroscience knows and what it doesn't. (A Los Angeles Times Best Nonfiction Book of 1998; Los Angeles Times Book Review, Jonathan Levi, 20 December 1998)
