Praise

“Parks recounts with generous and eager openness his conversations with leading philosophers and neuroscientists … A lucid exploration of thinking, perceiving, and being human.” —Publishers Weekly



“This Oliver Sacks–like book . . . succeeds admirably in bringing difficult ideas down a level. . . . Parks writes well enough to appeal to the layman and the mind boffin alike. Out of My Head is pleasurably nutty, self- regarding and at times quite hilarious.” —Ian Thomson, Evening Standard


“A lucid investigation into the nature of experience and its grounding in the brain. Many readers will delight in Parks’s vivid rendering of complex ideas. He has a masterful capacity to entertain theories of the nature of consciousness not as abstract objects of academic scrutiny but as living concerns. These concerns illuminate from within his personal reflections on meditation, love, age, and dreaming.” —Nick Haslam, University of Melbourne
