Review

"Library Journal"
"Metzinger's intended audience is the lay reader, and he does a superb job of presenting his theory and introducing philosophical issues related to consciousness."

"Booklist"
"Groundbreaking. This sophisticated understanding of the brain as an ego machine accounts remarkably well for the lived experience of being someone, a someone who transforms a bombardment of stimuli into a seamless present while still engaging in off-line planning for the future and reflection on the past."

"Bookforum"
"Metzinger is crisp in his arguments and has a keen appreciation of essential ideas."
