To any high-level practitioner of 'internal arts' such as Taoist meditation there should be many sections in this book. Particularly relevant are the sections on the systems approach as well as his diagrams of the mind in general. There is an inherent simplicity in his scientific explanations that is quite elegant. To an advanced practitioner, the explanations are grounding and relatively satisfying for explaining the purely cognitive state one may attain from practice.
Excellent and sure to be widely referenced in the future.
