The Body Has a Mind of Its Own: How Body Maps in Your Brain Help You Do (Almost) Everything Better The Body Has a Mind of Its Own: How Body Maps in Your Brain Help You Do (Almost) Everything Better

by Sandra and Matthew Blakeslee

Book Reviews

"The Blakeslees have taken the latest and most exciting finds from brain research and have made them accessible. This is how science writing should always be."
--Michael S. Gazzaniga, Ph.D., author of The Ethical Brain

"A marvelous book. In the last ten years there has been a paradigm shift in understanding the brain and how its various specialized regions respond to environmental changes. In addition to providing a brilliant overview of recent revolutionary discoveries on body image and brain plasticity, the book is sprinkled with numerous insights."
--V.S. Ramachandran, M.D., director, Center for Brain and Cognition, University of California, San Diego

"This book is a revelation: You'll never think about your body -- or your mind -- in the same way again. Sandra Blakeslee and Matthew Blakeslee have a gift for making the most esoteric discoveries in neuroscience both fascinating and fun."
--Daniel Goleman, author of Social Intelligence

"This is scientific reporting at its best -- the sort that not only imparts knowledge, but also evokes curiosity and wonder."
--Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

"A delightfully original, understandable, and mind-stretching work from the first family of American science journalism."
--William Safire, columnist, The New York Times

"You will breeze through this accessible. practical overview of an important scientific story and will certainly agree that the body is not an innocent bystander in this mind business."
--Antonio Damasio, author of Descartes' Error

"A fascinating exploration of senses we didn't even know we had, this compelling account of new research findings underscores how much of our human nature is meditated not by thinking but by profoundly somatic ways of knowing. This new science strongly suggests that we can trust and train various aspects of awareness to our immediate and enduring benefit."
--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Coming to our Senses
