One of our most original thinkers addresses the scientific world's premier question: What is the nature of consciousness? In recent years the nature of consciousness-our immediately known experiences-has taken its place as the most profound problem that science faces. Now in this brilliant and thoroughly accessible new book Colin McGinn takes a provocative position on this perplexing problem.

The New York Times Book Review \ \ \ - Galen Strawson

[McGinn] has a remarkable gift for developing new holds on old problems by shifting arguments and thought-experiments familiar in one area to another where nobody has thought of applying them....[The book] is a fast, straight route into the ''mind-body problem'' for beginners — while also containing a number of original ideas....I do not think that there is any better introduction to the problem of consciousness than this.
