This pop science book suggests that to understand one's own mind, one should first understand one's own brain.
Author Steven Johnson explains how the most recent theories in neuroscience have an impact on the way we think about thinking. He does more than simply put forward this idea: he actually puts it into practice by undergoing a series of neurological tests and connecting the results of these tests to how he was thinking and feeling at the time.
