With her gift for making science accessible, meaningful, and compelling, Sharon Begley illuminates a profound shift in our understanding of how the brain and the mind interact and takes us to the leading edge of a revolution in what it means to be human.
"There are two great things about this book. One is that it shows us how nothing about our brains is set in stone. The other is that it is written by Sharon Begley, one of the best science writers around. Begley is superb at framing the latest facts within the larger context of the field. . . . This is a terrific book."
-Robert M. Sapolsky, author of "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers"
"Excellent . . . elegant and lucid prose . . . an open mind here will be rewarded."
"A strong dose of hope along with a strong does of science and Buddhist thought."
-"The San Diego Union-Tribune.
