I never write reviews, but..
on 24 June 2013
I study medicine in the english program at Zagreb university. This book was recommended and read a lot of good reviews about the book. However, after finishing the book I realized that the book didn't teach me anything new, with a good structure. It feels like the whole book is just a "put together" of paper written by scientists. Everything about cognition I understand is not very well known, but not even the most simple circuits are explained!? Overall the structure of each topic is very bad, it is not for a teaching purpose. The book is more for people who have former knowledge, not for a novice!
The book also dwells about which scientist did what.. Which could be interesting. But they need to point out if the scientists believes are true. Or false of course, or unknown.
Now I did like the appendices in the end of the book. They are very straight forward.
