F Mubarak ,

Great

I kinda like it, but sometimes I find it a bit boring and complicated

Mani James ,

Great primer to neuroscience

Although I disagree with the author's conclusion that the brain and the mind are synonymous, this book is a fun ride. I plan to dive into the collection of references for delicious further reading.
I would have given it a 5 but there are times when the delivery of the case studies feels a bit stretched.
