Richard Dawkins calls V.S. Ramachandran "the Marco Polo of neuroscience"; another reviewer calls him "the foremost pioneer—the Galileo—of neurocognition." Such ethereal praise finds full justification in this new book, which has been described as "a veritable Voyage of the Beagle through the terrain of brain science and psychology." Ramachandran's talents as a researcher, a theorist, and a storyteller braid gracefully together in this exploration of how our brains make us distinctly human. As readable as it is profound, The Tell-Tale Brain qualifies as the best road map yet to where we're going in neuroscience.
