Reviews

His patient frustration at humanity's persistent wrong-headedness nicely seasons well-judged chapters that carefully guide the non-scientist through a history - there is no other word for it - of 20th-century neurological discoveries that prove his point.

--TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION

Rosenberg has written a fascinating and challenging book, one that every historian should read and take into account.
