There are a couple of comments I liked about my new book. Brian Clegg concludes a slightly equivocal review (on Amazon) with this overall verdict: “a really important milestone in our understanding of the complexity and variability of our inner landscape, and as such is a must-have addition to the popular science bookshelf”. He awards it 4 stars.
And my friend Brigitte Nerlich wrote a blogpost about the book which says, among other things: “I have read quite a few popular science books. Some are interesting, some enlightening, some enjoyable. This book has all of these qualities and it does something that good popular science books should do: it makes us think about the world, and in this case ourselves, in new ways; it makes us see ourselves as something else”. Which was what I was trying to do!
Incidentally, you can now read a lightly modified version of the introductory chapter here on Medium.
