Product description

Review

Howard Rheingold author of "Smart Mobs" Johnson's first-person account of the experiential and neuroscientific aspects of daily life is lucid, illuminating, entertaining, and thought-provoking. You'll find yourself thinking about thinking -- while you are thinking -- in a whole new way.

Steven Pinker Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of "The Blank Slate" and "How the Mind Works""Mind Wide Open" is a lucid and engaging travelogue from the frontiers of human brain science. Steven Johnson has an eye for the most interesting new ideas in this exploding field, and he explains them with insight and gusto.

David Shenk author of "The Forgetting: Alzheimer's: Portrait of an Epidemic" What good is living in an age of discovery if only a handful of people understand what's being discovered? With this book, Steven Johnson builds an extraordinary bridge between today's trailblazing neuroscientists and the rest of us. His mind-opening and potentially life-changing insight is that virtually anyone can now learn enough about brain chemistry and circuitry to personally explore -- and perhaps even reshape -- the contours of his or her own mind.

John Horgan author of "The Undiscovered Mind" and "Rational Mysticism" My brain was tickled, fascinated, moved, surprised, and above all entertained by Steven Johnson's delightful tour through modern neuroscience.

""Mind Wide Open" is a lucid and engaging travelogue from the frontiers of human brain science."
-- Steven Pinker, author of "The Blank Slate" and "How the Mind Works"

"Mind Wide Open is a lucid and engaging travelogue from the frontiers of human brain science."
-- Steven Pinker, author of The Blank Slate and How the Mind Works

"Celebrates the brain's complexity and wonder even as it demonstrates that you can get to know your mind better than you ever thought."
-- Kirkus Reviews
