Product description

Review

Anthony Holden author of "William Shakespeare: The Man Behind The Genius"As erudite as it is entertaining, David M. Friedman's biography of a body part is also the history of an idea, a study of a symbol, a bold journey through the treacherous terrain between the mind and the most mutinous outpost of its empire. Both humorous and harrowing, "A Mind of Its Own" is every bit as provocative as its subject matter demands.

About the Author

David M. Friedman has written for Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone, Vogue, The Village Voice, and many other publications. He was a reporter for Newsday and the Philadelphia Daily News. He lives in New York City.
