Reviews

'A poetic and profound guide to the enigma of consciousness and the evolution of the mind. Antonio Damasio is not only one of the deepest thinkers in neuroscience, but one of its most eloquent communicators. Feeling and Knowing is a truly awe-inspiring piece of writing' David Robson, author of The Intelligence Trap

'Here the master scientist unites with the silken prose-stylist to produce one thrilling insight after another . . . Damasio has succeeded brilliantly in narrowing the gap between body and mind' The New York Times Book Review

'Damasio's concise, precise and lucid prose effectively convey the core insight he has distilled over decades: that affect-encompassing, emotions, feelings, motivations and moods-is central to understanding what we do, how we think and who we are' Science

'Damasio writes lucid prose clearly addressed to a popular audience. Even better, the book is concise and helpfully divided into dozens of short chapters, many only one or two pages. Make no mistake, however; Damasio is a deep thinker familiar with multiple disciplines, and this is as much a work of philosophy as hard science. Readers familiar with college level psychology and neuroscience will discover rewarding insights' Kirkus Reviews
