“Big questions are Gazzaniga’s stock in trade.”
—New York Times
“Gazzaniga is likely one of the most brilliant experimental neuroscientists on the planet.”
“Gazzaniga stands as a giant among neuroscientists, for both the quality of his research and his ability to keep in touch it to a general public with infectious enthusiasm.”
—Robert Bazell, Chief Science Correspondent, NBC News
The creator of Human, Michael S. Gazzaniga has been referred to as the “father of cognitive neuroscience.” In his remarkable book, Who’s in Charge?, he makes a powerful and provocative argument that counters the common wisdom that our lives are wholly made up our minds by physical processes we cannot keep watch over. His well-reasoned case against the concept that we are living in a “made up our minds” world is fascinating and liberating, solidifying his place a number of the likes of Oliver Sacks, Antonio Damasio, V.S. Ramachandran, and other bestselling science authors exploring the mysteries of the human brain.
