I have not finished reading this book, but at the 75% moment I can report that if you liked "Phantoms in the Brain", you will like this book. If you are a professional philosopher, you will feel that Ramachandran is encroaching on your field. Too bad for you, and great for the rest of us. At least his propositions may be testable.

I have to read this book for my philosophy and neuroscience class, and I am thoroughly disappointed. Ramachandran spends half of each chapter either repeating what he's already said, complimenting himself on his accomplishments, and going off on tangents. The "stories" are interesting but can be found in much more comprehensive and well-written books. I would not recommend.

I read as much as I can about the brain and Ramachandran's books are among my favorites.
