¡Great read!

by greengohome on Sep 6, 2007

This book reads very quickly and it provides a lot of entertainment. The disorders discussed by the author really exemplify the discoveries he has made about how the human brain works. Some of the theories about aesthetics seem a little bit far fetched, but they are well presented and certainly provide for an involving read. My one complaint is that the book seems short. I devoured it in a couple of hours in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport and was left wanting more. Ramachandran has the writing skills to provide a more in depth look at these topics without losing the cheerful accessibility that makes this book so wonderful.
