it was ok
bookshelves: mr-wizard, non-fiction, shrink-me

My rating might be a bit unfair because (without realizing it!) I read the 1994/5 edition. The writing in that version was incredibly technical for someone who did not go to med school or major in chemistry. Nonetheless, the concept of where the "self" resides is fascinating. Also, a heck of a lot of neurological research has been done since 1995. I would be interested in the new edition once I flipped through and convinced myself that the author had a new editor.
