Induces great pause-for-thought reflection,
This review is from: Incognito: The Secret Lives of The Brain (Kindle Edition)
I was a little hesitant about buying this as, being a doctor, I was not looking forward to going over the same old ground about the history of psychotherapy and neuroanatomy/physiology. However, I needn't have been worried as this book is a fresh and accessible story of the way the mind works with fascinating examples of real life observations and studies to demonstrate the theories. What set the this apart for me when compared with previous books I have read on the subject, is the author's ability to make the reader reflect on his own consciousness in a new an stimulating way.
