By bronx book nerd VINE VOICE on July 3, 2013
Format: Paperback
Philosophy of mind, like many other topics in philosophy, is not easy. In this relatively short book, Mel Thompson does a credible job in presenting the major topics in this philosophical sub-discipline. Thompson, who is not a "trained" philosopher but rather a journalist who specializes in this field, is well read and well-versed on the topic. He covers that major topics: knowledge, identity, dualism, etc, in a fairly accessible manner for the unfamiliar. He occasionally interjects his own viewpoints, sometimes even referring to certain philosophical positions as "daft", something that will probably irk "professional" philosophers. Overall this book provides a good introduction for the beginner with a complementary set of online resources at the end of the book, for those who wish to delve deeper.

Format: Paperback
After reading the book, i came to conclusion that it is just a basic illustration about philosophy of mind. It's very similar to the "for dummies " series of book. Why spend $20 on a book, that is written on a same template, like the other series. There is no joy reading it.
