Review

`Sigman finds the sweet spot between findings and experimental detail, and it makes for a compelling read. Entertaining... with moments of exhileration'Financial Times `Mariano Sigman writes and thinks in a uniquely provocative way. He is a gifted cognitive neuroscientist, and we are lucky to have him excavating the secret life of the mind. He makes learning about the mind and brain easy and almost automatic. He is the Richard Feynman of the brain'Andrew Meltzoff, Professor of Psychology, the University of Washington; co-author of `The Scientist in the Crib `The author takes us on grand tour covering an extraordinarily diverse range of topics that are of interest to readers and specialists alike' VS Ramachandran FRCP, author of The Tell-Tale Brain `The brain is the star of this book, with chapters focussing on its characteristics throughout childhood and youth, identity, decision-making, consciousness, education and its capacity to transform itself. In exploring the psychological element of neuroscience, Mariano Sigman tells the story of the human mind as a journey through some of the least travelled paths of mankind ... A wonderful read' La Nacion `The idea of the mind as a tabula rasa is only one of many erroneous notions that Sigman's brilliant book helps to correct' El Mundo `What differentiates The Secret Life of the Mind from other books about the mind is that it takes on neuroscience from a psychological point of view, as well as taking into account psychoanalysis, behavioural economics and philosophy' Nosotras `Sigman confirms that although we are capable of detecting and manipulating consciousness, science is still not able to physically break it down. The idea of the mind as a tabula rasa is only one of many erroneous notions that Sigman's brilliant book helps to correct' El Cultural, El Mundo
