I found this to be a very interesting book about scientific studies done on the brain. It brings about arguments for why women are so attuned to communicating while men are more reserved and quiet. Why our memories before 3 years old are hard to recollect. Why we are aware of some things and not others. How hunting and gathering affected our society. Time/Place awareness of our mind.
How evolution effected and affected our thought process.
Editing not the best and there is a lot of repetitive facts but overwhelmingly a very insightful read.

I bought this book because I was interested in neurological evidence for consciousness, free will etc. At that level, this book was a complete disappointment. However, it was an entertaining read, nonetheless.

First, this book isn't really a "book". It is a compilation of academic journal articles by Joseph. There is little attempt to integrate them and some of them even have the original headers. It is almost as if he decided to photocopy some old offprints and staple them together. It reflects a certain lack of investment in the book as a written text and it detracts from the reading experience.

Second, I think it is probably fair to say that Joseph's interpretation of things is on the esoterically extreme end of the range. I doubt that this is mainstream science and somewhere crosses the line from the factual into a speculative religion that will be considered "deep bro" by crystal lovers in tie-dye T-shirts...

Third, there are some fascinating facts and summaries of case studies in this book that will blow your mind. Joseph argues that we don't have one mind, but rather a set of competing "minds" based in different parts of our brain anatomy. And the evidence he provides is compelling and jaw-dropping. For example, he tells of a man who had broken up with his long-term girlfriend and whose brain hemispheres weren't connected. When asked how he felt about the breakup, his one hand gave a thumbs up even as his voice explained how sorry he was. And then there is the story of the person who buttons shirts with the left hand while the right hand simultaneously undoes the buttons. And there are many more. For this reason alone, I found the book entertaining and quite stimulating.
