Reviews

An ever engaging book. A worthy companion to books by Oliver Sacks, Daniel Dennett, and other students of the always puzzling human mind.
A spirited overview of one of neuroscience's most complex topics. Davies's knack for translating the abstract into the tangible--while also doing justice to the original ideas--will make this scientific take on imagination appealing to generalists and specialists alike.-- (09/09/2019)
The sections are concise but thorough and provide readers with thoughtful presentations on just how complex the concept of imagination can be. This is serious brain science coupled with familiar topics, like ear worms, and Davies does a first-rate job of tying it all together with many a wink and nod along the way. Science book clubs will find this title well worth their time, and it's a certain winner for general readers.-- (10/11/2019)
Deeply researched study of imagination -- ranging from everyday practicalities such as planning a shopping list, to dreams and hallucinations.-- (11/13/2019)
A smart and fascinating look at how humans build worlds inside their heads--and why it matters.--Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University, author of Stumbling on Happiness
A highly readable book on the science, usefulness, and power of imagination. Chock full of interesting ideas, and will get you thinking--and imagining.--Elizabeth Loftus, co-author of Human Memory: The Processing of Information, and 100 most influential psychological researchers of the 20th century
