Product description

Review

Matthew Belmonte "The Washington Times" Crick's new book is a well-constructed and comprehensive overview of visual neuroscience for the lay reader....[The] book's questions and conjectures are incisive and provocative.

Carl Sagan

"Author of "Cosmos"

"The Astonishing Hypothesis" is a fascinating argument that consciousness and what has long been called the soul are now accessible to scientific investigation.

Sheryl Stolberg

"Los Angeles Times"

Skewering philosophy and religion in a book that is supposed to be about the study of the brain might be awkward for other scientists. But Crick pulls it off, and incorporates the nitty-gritty of science to boot.
