A fascinating look at the relationship between the unconscious and conscious mind written in understandable scientific terms. The author leaves Freud behind (where he belongs) and looks to the work of William James as the seminal authority on the modern view of the relationship between the conscious and the unconscious. The material on memory gaps and the role of the unconscious in producing "filler" is found in other works, but the treatment here is particularly clear and readable. The author demonstrates how our unconscious plays a positive role in shaping our conscious views and why none of us, no matter what we believe, are truly unbiased because the unconscious protects and defends our view of ourselves. I highly recommend this book.

Very heavy reading

I couldn't follow along, too lengthy and seemed repetative.

    Wonderful insight and easy to read!

    I was a bit unsure about getting this book, at first, seeing as how I'm not a scientist – nor do I have a degree equivalent of – but am glad I purchased it. This book breaks down how your unconscious (along with how it affects your conscious) mind works and relates it to everyday situations so that you may easily understand and grasp the concepts. Think of it as the book version of the show, Bill Nye the Science Guy (for those of you who are young/old enough to have watched it as a kid) – it’s funny and laid-back all while being EXTREMELY informative.
