"Who are you?," said the caterpillar.

You probably, unlike Alice, think you know the answer to this question. Read this book and you will discover not only why Alice was undecided about who she was, but that you probably should also be unsure about who you are. The book is a fascinating and neuroscientifically sound book about personal selfhood. While it is scientifically sound, it is well written and easy and enjoyable to read. I read it as a library book, bought a copy for me and two others to give to friends, and have my copy currently loaned to another friend. I think everyone should read, and can profit from reading, this book.
