Absorbing and accessible, this is a great explanation of the latest advances in the field of brain/mind issues. Eagleman uses the phrase "team of rivals" (coined by Doris Kearns Goodwin) to describe, for the scientifically ignorant, just what researchers think is going on! It is comforting to know there are still way more questions than answers, yet I felt newly enlightened. — Karen Frank

Hands down my most favorite book of the year. The function of the human mind is an endless source of fascination, in my book, and this book takes the reader to concepts contrary to common thinking through the ages. His research suggests that our decisions are barely influenced by the part of our thinking brain of which we are aware. He brings into question the whole notion of culpability. Not to suggest that people should "get away" with anti-social behavior but that we should reconsider the consequences we impose on those who "misbehave." A mind-blowing assessment of who's really in our drivers' seats. — Heather Bellanca
