“Kosslyn and Miller have written a lively, informative, and easily assimilated summary of several important principles of brain function for the general reader who does not have the time or background to follow the complexities of neuroscience research but would like a scaffolding on which to place the new facts that dominate each day’s headlines.” (Jerome Kagan, emeritus professor of psychology, Harvard University)

“A bold new theory, with intriguing practical implications, formulated by one of America’s most original psychologists.” (Howard Gardner, co-author of The App Generation)

“An invigorating thought-experiment on reassembling the brain’s dynamic parts.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Stephen Kosslyn has long been one of the world’s leading cognitive psychologists. In his new book, along with Wayne Miller, he proposes a novel synthesis for thinking about the modes of cognition and the neurobiology that underlies it. This is an extremely stimulating book and a wonderfully readable one as well, even containing useful information for how each of us can make sense of our own ways of thinking.” (Robert M. Sapolsky, Stanford University Professor of Neurology and MacArthur Fellow)
