"Kim's papers in this area have had tremendous impact in philosophy, and I think this book would be regarded as a 'must-buy' item by very many philosophers working in metaphysics and in philosophy of mind." Terry Horgan, Memphis State University
"Kim's work is at the center of current discussion of supervenience, the relation of supervenience to reductionism, the nature of mental causation, and related issues in the philosophy of mind. Although his work on these topics is often cited, it is scattered in various journals volumes, etc., and often difficult to track down. It would be enormously useful to have this work, or what he regards as the core of it, collected in a single place." Sydney Shoemaker, Cornell University
Representing one of the most preeminent and influential contributors to the philosophy of mind and metaphysics, this collection of essays presents the core of his work on supervenience and mind with two sets of postscripts especially written for the book.

If Kim is Reading this, get a new publisher, if Amazon, invest in at least minimal quality control

I haven’t read the whole thing so do not interpret this as a review about the content of the book, what I could read of it was fairly interesting not that I agree with Kim on everything.
