    It took several false starts and stalls, but my third attempt at this beast proved victorious and much easier than expected I suppose it took being in the right frame of mind and open schedule to devote my full brain power to the task Once those conditions were met, I hardly put it down.That s probably the first thing to note about this book, which presents a fairly detailed and complete neural model of consciousness, from evolutionary biology to phenomenology it s a dense read And although the [...]
