I believe that this book is compulsory reading for anyone hoping to practice or publish in the fields of psychology or psychiatry. That does not mean that it is dense or difficult to read. Maybe it is not as gripping as the classical action thriller, but the several arguments are presented with delightful clarity, and do end up reaching both their individual conclusions and an overall synthesis.
I would therefore recommend this to the interested layman as well as the professional, and could wish that I had read it well before brain plasticity became fashionable.
