Praise

Nature
“An ideal introduction to how biology generates the mind…. structured around crucial and wide-ranging questions, saturated with per- sonal and social relevance. And Eagleman’s answers are consistently clear, engaging and thought-provoking.”

Brian Eno

“David Eagleman’s wide-ranging roundup of the current state of knowledge about the brain is concise, accessible and often very surprising. It’s a strange new world inside your head.”

Stephen Fry
“David Eagleman’s The Brain its an astonishing read. On every page there is a revelation so fantastic as to make one gasp. It would be impossible to take in if we didn’t all possess that impossibly extraordinary thing, a brain. Eagleman comes closer than anyone to solving the mystery of how to find the self inside the grey electric mush between our ears.”

Ruby Wax
“David Eagleman makes it easy to comprehend the most complex collection of cells in the Cosmos  - our brain.   If neuroscience had a rock legend this would be him.”
