"The book is a fascinating and lively guide, which engages the reader on many levels ... You can turn to any page of the book and find an access point to explore a web of integrated knowledge." "Many have explored the nature of mental life, yet no interdisciplinary approach has existed to address its issues or even define what the mind is. This book offers a new way of assessing how the mind works." "Siegel's book does an amazing job reflecting his vast knowledge of how our brains and our relationships interact to shape our lives."
