    "Incredibly dense and confusing, but good to carry around and pretend like you're reading it so you look smarter than you really are to all those strangers on the subway."

    "I thought the subject area was interesting, so I didn't think I'd have any trouble getting through this book. However, the way it is written makes it somewhat clumsy and difficult to stay focused on."

    "l've read Churchland's previous Braintrust, Brain-wise and Neurophilosophy for a course I was takIng, and while I learned one thing or another from each, I've felt with al three that the focus, more precisely the reasons for writing, the claims made, and the ways to go about demonstrating/supporting those were not clear, at times spending too much of the book on a seemingly-not-central field or, say, the role of progesterone etc. First things first, despite occasional figures that elaborate on brain structures/connections that may, at first glance, look frightening, the whole book, down to each sentence, is accessible to patient readers with no natural-science background."

    "If you're interested in a concise and empirically grounded look at how organisms experience themselves and the world, this is a definite. There is also a nice look into the future with Paul speculating what may come from the study of neuroengineering with humans. This book is especially appealing in light of the fact that our population is being exposed to the novel findings in medicine, neuroscience, and all other fields that play a part in the NC perspective. If you're interested in this book, you may also want to check out the movie,"

    "Really interesting read that combines philosophy with computers and cognitive thinking. It was wrote in 2005 but can be applied to current machine learning and AI. Great for computer science majors that think abstractly"
