EXCELLENT!!! i HAVE BEEN SO INTERESTED IN THE HUMAN BRAIN SINCE I HAD A BENIGN BASEBALL-SIZED TUMOR REMOVED FROM MY LEFT TEMPORAL LOBE AND WAS ATTACHED TO THE PONS AREA OF MY BRAIN. THIS BOOK HAS EXPLAINED SO MUCH ABOUT THE WORKINGS OF THE BRAIN AND FUTURE POSSIBILITIES OF TREATING PROBLEMS. ITHE BOOK IS WRITTEN WITH WORDS THAT CAN BE UNDERSTOOD BY AN ORDINARY PERSON WHO IS NOT SCIENTICALLY EDUCATED. A MUST READ FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN THINKING MORE ABOUT ADVANCES AND UPCOMING WAYS TO COMPREHEND WHAT THE BRAIN IS CAPABLE OF DOING. RECOMMENDED-PHANTOMS IN THE BRAIN & THE TELL-TAIL BRAIN BY V.S. RAMACHADRAN.

Michio Kaku is full of self-congratulation. That gets old fast.

Michio Kaku is full of self-congratulation. That gets old fast.  He is also flogging the "carbon" scare, telling us that global warming is gonna getcha.  That gets old, too.

If you want really good science books, get those by Harvard Physics Prof Brian Greene...

If you want really good science books, get those by Harvard Physics Prof Brian Greene. They are MUCH more interesting, and very easy to read [almost no mathematics].

I've read both Kaku and Greene.  Greene... good!  Kaku... bad.
