From the Publisher"Ackerman [is] our poetic chronicler of the natural world."
-- Chicago Tribune
"[A] lovely...arresting...discourse on brain science."
-- Entertainment Weekly
"Partly close observation, partly free association, Ackerman's paean turns the inside of our heads into...[something] gorgeous, tender, jewelled."
-- The New York Times Book Review
"A love song to the brain...combines flights of lyricism and autobiographical reflection with a cooler, more cerebral amalgam of science, anthropology, psychology, history, and literature."
-- Francine Prose, More magazine
"Evocative and meaningful."
-- Carl Zimmer, The Washington Post
