If you have a brain, this book is about you. Johnson explores and elucidates recent discoveries about how the human mind works. Out of the many insights that have come out of neuroscience, Johnson focuses on those that, as he puts it, pass the "long-decay test;" they stick with you, and each can change your concept of yourself in some important way. No previous knowledge of neuroscience is required to understand and enjoy this engaging book. Brain science can be a powerful tool for self-understanding, and Johnson makes this tool accessible to anyone with a little curiosity about what's going on "behind the scenes" of the conscious self.
