Reviews
"[An] elegant . . . laudable, [and] accessible exploration of what's happening in neuroscience, biochemistry, and other disciplines, and an insightful examination of the trait that defines humans above all other organisms."--San Diego Union-Tribune

"Highly readable."--Oliver Sacks, New York Review of Books

"Consciousness is a hot topic, but still a mystery. One of the leaders of the scientific approach to the study of consciousness, Gerald Edelman has written a book that is a good roadmap for the lay reader."--Francis Crick, author of The Astonishing Hypothesis
