Barrett combines evidence from comparative psychology, robotics and AI to make a comprehensive argument regarding the nature of human reasoning. Specifically, she examines the way cognition is dependent on the body, and its environment as well as the brain. In doing so, she effectively deals with the Descartesian dualism that remains implicit in a lot of psychology.

Altough Barrett endevours to be accessible to the general reader, some background knowledge in scientific psychology does help. However, this book provides an amazing introduction to embodied cognition for undergraduates and postgraduates in psychology, and that is the audience I would primarily reccomend it to.
