Description:

In A Very Short Tour of the Mind, Michael C. Corballis says the human mind is arguably the most complex organ in the universe. Modern computers might be faster, and whales might have larger brains, but neither can match the sheer intellect or capacity for creativity that we humans enjoy. In this look inside our heads, Corballis introduces us to what we've learned about the intricacies of the human brain over the last fifty years. Leading us through behavioral experiments and neuroscience, cognitive theory and Darwinian evolution with his trademark wit and wisdom, Corballis punctures a few hot -- air balloons, and explains just what we know -- and don't know --about our own minds.

Quotes:

Twenty-one short science lessons are a great gift for the graduateā€¦Professor of psychology Michael Corballis explores in this short, witty guide twenty-one surprising behaviors and trademarks of the most complex organ. With wit and fervor rooted in a compelling interest in the human mind, Corballis introduces fascinating theories and narratives without scientific jargon, pondering the extent of our knowledge and wisdom., Foreword Reviews Magazine

Many successful authors answer questions we long ago articulated and have wished we could answer. Michael Corballis goes at least a step further. He poses questions we wouldn't have thought to ask and then answers them with clarity and wit. And what could be more fascinating to a human being than the human brain? I liked it so much that I want to be sure you know about it... [A] pleasure to savor sip by sip., American Scientist
