Product description

Review

Fascinating, timely and important ... Hood's presentation of the science behind our supersense is crystal clear and utterly engaging. (New Scientist)

Wonderful. Illuminating. Full of insight, beauty, and humor. Get to know thyself. (David Eagleman, Author Of Sum)

Startling and engrossing... (Robin Ince)

Hood has amassed a mountain of support for his argument, covering brain development through social interaction such as attachment, the importance of social mimicry, the illogicality of free will, on-line and off-line selves and much, much more. (Nature)

a fascinating and beautifully written book. (The Biologist)

Book Description

A fascinating examination of how the latest science shows that our individual concept of a self is in fact an illusion.
