The book is far more than I had imagined, and although its emphasis is mainly on dealing with brain damage, it is wonderfully organized and presented. It is too much for me to attempt reading through, but I intend to use it as a reference book, especially as I reread "The Right Brain and the Unconscious" by the same author. In addition to that, I have already started reading it by just leafing through and finding interesting subjects. The illustrations are excellent and profuse, showing in detail all the bulbs and protuberances of the brain, and describing their functions and interrelations with other parts. It's the sort of book you can read in any order. I love it.
This is reminiscent of my college research paper, it even has about 40% citations to fill in space. If you are familiar with the brain basics, its contents, and responsibilities then this book really doesn't have anything to offer. It also felt condescending to an extent as a result of the language the author used. The end result is a paper that reads about as unnatural as you can get. Side note: Amazon doesn't do free shipping returns on books- at least not this one. All in all I'm out 4 bucks and a trip to the post office.
Rhawn Joseph is a joke in the scientific community. He has published books in the astrobiology field and cosmology and neurobiology, but has degree in neuropsychology. This is the worst book that could have been published for the neurosciences. Do not buy.
