Reviews

'Consistently well-written and meticulously researched' -- Alain de Botton * The Sunday Times * 'In breezy demotic, Fine offers an entertaining tour of current thinking' * Telegraph * 'Fine sets out to demonstrate that the human brain is vainglorious and stubborn. She succeeds brilliantly.' * Mail on Sunday * 'This is one of the most interesting and amusing accounts of how we think we think - I think.' * Alexander McCall Smith * 'A fascinating, funny, disconcerting and lucid book ... by the end you'll realise that your brain can (and does) run rings around you.' * Helen Dunmore * 'Fine, a cognitive neuroscientist with a sharp sense of humour and an intelligent sense of reality, slaps an Asbo on the hundred billion grey cells that - literally - have shifty, ruthless, self-serving minds of their own.' * The Times * 'Clear, accessible writing makes her a science writer to watch' * Metro * 'Fine wears her learning lightly, blending facts with humorous observations. The result is a fascinating insight into how our minds work.' * Psychologies * 'A witty survey of psychology experiments demonstrating the depths of our suggestibility, the irrationality of our reasoning and the limits of free will.' * Focus *
