This book will boggle your mind as it describes every aspect of the human psychological model in detail. It is quite a lot to take in but Marvin Minsky really knows his stuff with a long career in NASA's Robotics devision. Definitely worth the read if you have any vague interest in the mind or artificial intelligence.

Fascinating book. So well written and presented this book has been very enjoyable to read, the ideas are explained well with easy to understand examples. An amazing insight into how the human mind could work I would highly recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in intelligence and their own existence.

This book is amazing. It combines developmental/child psychology, computer science, artificial intelligence, theory of knowledge and all sorts of other things in something that appears truly timeless and wise, in so many ways. Every page of this book is a key and inspiration to enjoying really substantial challenges.
