I absolutely loved the first part of this book, where all ideas we tend to have about the brain and memory are questioned. That part hasn't aged either, on the contrary, new things found since (such as false memories, or mirror neurons) fit in seamlessly.However, the second half, where he offers a theory of his own, doesn't live up to the expectations. It's still interesting, but not riveting anymore.Still, I wish I hadn't left this book on my TBR pile for so long and started reading it sooner. Definitely recommended for anyone interested in the workings of the brain.
