    Astonishingly insightful!

    Daniel Goleman is one of the most insightful experts on the mind in recent times. This book provides us with an excellent account of the nature of consciousness, attention, and arousal and how they all interact with one another. Like many great writers, he presents this material in a storylike manner to retain our interest and attention. I have learned more things about how the mind works from this book than I have in any Psychology textbook I have read. The only exception to this would be the book called 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato. This book by Sato is perhaps the most insightful and accessible book on consciousness ever written. In any case Goleman's book is still top notch.
