Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-- A succinct, lucid, and comprehensive treatment of the subject, beginning with a philosophical consideration of the mind and ending with an interesting chapter of practical suggestions on how to be a better learner. Between these discussions are solid, scientific accounts of the mind, the senses, mental ability, communication, aging, and theories of learning. It is well indexed and contains suggestions for further reading. Although the vocabulary may be challenging, important terms and words are italicized for emphasis; a helpful glossary is appended. The diagrams and drawings are crisp and clearly presented, but the black-and-white photographs are a weak point. Interestingly written, the book could be read completely for its informational value or consulted as a quick reference. There are other books on this topic, but none weave the psychological and scientific aspects of the mind as well as this one does. The result is a lively discussion for the mind--about the mind. --Patricia B. Hitchings, University of Pennsylvania, Edinboro, PA
