Product Details

Praise

“There are words that are so familiar they obscure rather than illuminate the thing they mean, and ‘learning’ is such a word. It seems so ordinary, everyone does it. Actually it’s more of a black box, which Dehaene cracks open to reveal the awesome secrets within . . . His explanation of the basic machinery of the brain is an excellent primer.”-The New York Times Book Review

“[An] expert overview of learning . . . Never mind our opposable thumb, upright posture, fire, tools, or language; it is education that enabled humans to conquer the world . . . Dehaene’s fourth insightful exploration of neuroscience will pay dividends for attentive readers.”Kirkus Reviews

“[Dehaene] rigorously examines our remarkable capacity for learning. The baby brain is especially awesome and not a ‘blank slate’  . . . Dehaene’s portrait of the human brain is fascinating.”Booklist

“A richly instructive [book] for educators, parents, and others interested in how to most effectively foster the pursuit of knowledge.” –Publishers Weekly

Praise for Reading in the Brain:

 
“Splendid…Dehaene reveals how decades of low-tech experiments and high-tech brain-imaging studies have unwrapped the mystery of reading and revealed its component parts…A pleasure to read. [Dehaene] never oversimplifies; he takes the time to tell the whole story, and he tells it in a literate way.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Masterful…a delight to read and scientifically precise.”—Nature

Praise for Consciousness and the Brain:

“Ambitious . . . Dehaene offers nothing less than a blueprint for brainsplaining one of the world’s deepest mysteries. . . . [A] fantastic book.”—The Washington Post

“Dehaene is a maestro of the unconscious.”—Scientific American Mind

“Brilliant… Essential reading for those who want to experience the excitement of the search for the mind in the brain.”—Nature
