Read from July 29, 2011 to May 17, 2013

Fascinating stuff in here about mirror neurons and how we learn. Hopeful parts about his work with amputees suffering from 'phantom pain' in the missing limbs was also good reading. Right now I am in the chapter about how we see and respond to art. I liked the mention of bower birds and how their beautiful creations lure potential mates. Considering that he must be a mensa member, the book is very readable and well explained. He is someone that I will likely read again.
