Editorial Reviews

Review

On Intelligence will have a big impact; everyone should read it. In the same way that Erwin Schrödinger's 1943 classic What is Life? made how molecules store genetic information then the big problem for biology, On Intelligence lays out the framework for understanding the brain.” ―James D. Watson, president, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and Nobel laureate in Physiology

“Brilliant and embued with startling clarity. On Intelligence is the most important book in neuroscience, psychology, and artificial intelligence in a generation.” ―Malcolm Young, neurobiologist and provost, University of Newcastle

“Read this book. Burn all the others. It is original, inventive, and thoughtful, from one of the world's foremost thinkers. Jeff Hawkins will change the way the world thinks about intelligence and the prospect of intelligent machines.” ―John Doerr, partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
