Thoroughly disappointing.

Reads like a college student who, having read a bunch of books, decides to write something to demonstrate his reading.

Does mention the major finding of the past decade, the "Jennifer Aniston" neuron (i.e., a single neuron reacting to visual stimulus of a celebrity, etc.). Illustrative of possibility of Penrose's theory of neuron structure being correct, but this author knows nothing of that and doesn't mention it -- his writing on that finding is sloppy and slap dash!

Might be better served simply to read up on Diffusion Tensor Imaging -- although this book might serve as a primer to basic neuroscience?
