really liked it
Read in March, 2012

This book is deceptively difficult...brilliantly set up and each 1 page 'chapter' builds on itself - which is sorta how M Minski suggests the structure of the mind is arranged, so the structure of the book is no coincidence...excellent insight on how we know, learn and remember... how we make decisions and in general, how intelligence arises from unintelligent elements of our brains. Or to put it more succinctly, how a mind forms from brains....as Minski stated, a mind is simply what a brain does.
