From the reviews:

"Mirror Neuron Systems: The Role of Mirroring Processes in Social Cognition can be viewed as evolving from this area of specialization, being an anthology of explanations for the relation between mirror neuron locations and functions and some main concepts from social cognition. ... This book will serve scholars researching the topic of mirror neurons as new findings emerge and the theoretical understandings mature. The book also serves as a useful addition to graduate courses that cover social cognitive neuroscience." (Francis C. Staskon, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 54 (35), 2009)
