This book is another good book about evolutionary psychology, My favorite book on evolutionary psychology is "Why Everyone (Else) is a Hypocrite" but this book is a close second. Like my favorite book, it discusses the multiple mind theory and the problems with free will. He does push a theory about prison reform somewhat much but it was an interesting thought.

Eagleman presents an engaging view of how the brain works in this easily readable and informative book. He weaves narrative of real life cases together with his background in neuroscience to illustrate how the human brain functions and how we perceive reality. This is a great read that will keep you engaged from start to finish. You’ll finish the book a little more enlightened and, perhaps, with a different outlook on just what your brain means to you.

This is a GREAT book, if you're looking for something intellectually stimulating AND entertaining. Don't bother if you're looking for something closer to a "harry potter" sort of entertainment.

I am very interested in all the neuroscience books that have been coming out on the workings of the brain. This book added to my knowledge and challenged me with new ideas about our control of our lives. Recommended!

Just when I was about to give up existentialism based on the author's belief that consciousness is a small part of the brain that is probably almost completely controlled by the organic mind, he reverses his position and claims that life is a mystery! A very gripping read about new discoveries of the brain.
