Product Details


“An emphatic success. Mr. Grafton gives an authoritative and accessible account of what is now known about nonverbal bodily intelligence.”
—The Wall Street Journal

“Grafton is a world-renowned neuroscientist and clinical neurologist who has made important contributions that impact every area of our field.”
—Daniel J. Levitin, author of New York Times best seller The Organized Mind
“There are great writers who cover science, and every once in a while there are great scientists who can not only write but can also let us in on the turmoil and secrets of modern science. Grafton’s own expertise in medicine, neuroscience, and cognitive science allows him insights few others can contemplate. Physical Intelligence will become an instant classic.” 
—Michael S. Gazzaniga, author of The Consciousness Instinct
