Lou Cozolino has created a comprehensive tour of the social brain, illuminating to both scientists and lay readers. — Lise Elliot, Ph.D., Department of Neuroscience, The Chicago Medical School, and author of What's Going On In There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life
This book is a pleasure to read. It is richly illustrated with clinical examples and synthesizes knowledge from the neurophysiological and psychological domains with psychological perspectives that will allow both seasoned clinicians and beginning therapists 'to integrate a brain-based understanding of human development, mental health, and mental illness' (p. 307) into their psychodynamic paradigms. The references are excellent. Best of all, the work reflects the author's ebullient spirit. . . . I recommend this book enthusiastically to all my colleagues. Over the past 6 months, I have found myself rereading chapters and enriching my own ability to integrate brain-mind areas that were previously isolated islands of thought. — American Journal of Psychology
