“A remarkably prolific and inventive 30-year-old journalist, [Jonah Lehrer‘s] is sceptical of the overblown claims of neuroscience to explain complex psychological or cultural phenomena. Yet he is himself capable of speculating convincingly from the available science, picking up from where Malcolm Gladwell leaves off in bridging the two-cultures divide. More than psychology and the social sciences, Lehrer seeks to illuminate the exterior world of culture from within the dark interiors of the brain.” ~ Alexander Linklater applauds an impressively lucid description of the creative mind at work
