Short, sharp and to the point, this is an excellent summary of the dangers McGilchrist talks about in his magnum opus, The Master and His Emissary. Good as a cheap and fast way to introduce people to his general thesis.
This is a clear and concise discussion of the practical parameters of the Left/Right brain enigma by a thoughtful and engaging author and provides us with the ability to discern something of the impetus and shape of the present neoliberal globalising economic system (including the technologies that it is based on) and its dependence on left brain thinking.
This is a short but very interesting work. With few words Ian Mcgilchrist blows yous mind showing how diferently the right and left hemispheres of our brain work, and how the historical consequences of this fact shapes your reallity. Its more than enought to make you want to ready his complete work in the book "The master and his emissary".
