Recensioner i media
"A scrupulously detailed yet magnificently panoramic autobiography." -- Sherwin B. Nuland "Arresting-indeed, unforgettable." -- Howard Gardner "An enchanting book." -- Nancy C. Anderson "Few can interlace their autobiography with the evolution of a scientific paradigm. Even fewer can weave such a story seamlessly. Eric Kandel is one of these." -- Yadin Dudai "Beyond autobiography, the book is also an accessible introduction to contemporary neuroscience, the study of how the brain produces thought and action. Included are brilliant vignettes on the history of neuroscience." "[A] scintillating mix of memoir, history of science, and fundamental biology without peer. It shows compellingly what first-rate science is and how it is created." -- E.O. Wilson, author of The Diversity of Life "Written with talent and grace, this extraordinary book by one of the greatest scientists of the mind alive will be read with delight by general readers as well as by students and scholars." -- Elie Wiesel, author of Night
