This books is a stimulating analysis combining cutting edge research and the thinking of modern and ancient philosophers on the elusive topic of "self". Where resides the self? and a host of other questions have baffled man over the past millennia.

The writer is realistic enough not to even suggest the possibility of solving all the mysteries. But he has done a very good job of identifying the components of the jig saw puzzle.

A part of the big picture emerges and the reader reaches a radically new and higher level of comprehension toward the end of the book.

The written style is unique and seems like "here are the facts; you take it on from there”.
