5.0 out of 5 stars Induces great pause-for-thought reflection, 14 Aug 2011
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.

fully agree - I'm a psychiatrist and, I imagine, like you have read quite a few books about the brain/mind but found this one entertaining, and even when covering familiar territory, written so engagingly as to make revision fun - recommended to lots of students too - particularly liked the Zen-Nippon chicken sexing story, a novel approach to education...
