Reviews

"[An] expert overview of learning . . . Never mind our opposable thumb, upright posture, fire, tools, or language; it is education that enabled humans to conquer the world . . . Dehaene's fourth insightful exploration of neuroscience will pay dividends for attentive readers."--Kirkus Reviews

"[Dehaene] rigorously examines our remarkable capacity for learning. The baby brain is especially awesome and not a 'blank slate' . . . Dehaene's portrait of the human brain is fascinating."--Booklist "A richly instructive [book] for educators, parents, and others interested in how to most effectively foster the pursuit of knowledge." --Publishers Weekly Praise for Reading in the Brain "Splendid...Dehaene reveals how decades of low-tech experiments and high-tech brain-imaging studies have unwrapped the mystery of reading and revealed its component parts...A pleasure to read. [Dehaene] never oversimplifies; he takes the time to tell the whole story, and he tells it in a literate way."--The Wall Street Journal "Masterful...a delight to read and scientifically precise."--Nature Praise for Consciousness and the Brain "Ambitious . . . Dehaene offers nothing less than a blueprint for brainsplaining one of the world's deepest mysteries. . . . [A] fantastic book."--The Washington Post "Dehaene is a maestro of the unconscious."--Scientific American Mind "Brilliant... Essential reading for those who want to experience the excitement of the search for the mind in the brain."--Nature
