It is hard to be critical of this book because I believe it serves its purpose very well.
The book came from Ramachandran's BBC Reith lectures, so it is for a popular audience, with the notes providing some more underlying detail.
This book is an expansion and revision of a series of talks that the author gave as the 2003 Reith Lectures on BBC Radio.
I'd no doubt call it an excellent introductory book to consciousness. It definitely provides everything that's advertised, and I love Ramachandran's writing style.Published 7 months ago by k20z1
