Fascinating and helpful!,
This review is from: Incognito: The Secret Lives of The Brain (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book. It is lively and well written with lots of everyday examples and explanations to make difficult concepts easy to understand. You need zero knowledge of the brain or psychology to follow the arguments. Best of all there are plenty of examples and 'tests' so you can see for yourself exactly what he means.
Eagleman is extremely honest about what he is pretty sure he knows, what he thinks he knows and stuff he is speculating about. I liked the way it was written for a non-specialist audience but at the same time any students or academics reading it are given plenty of resources and references to follow up. It is rare to find a book that covers such a difficult topic so well and for all kinds of audiences.
