    1. In this review I summarized the book under six main topics then I wrote my critiques1.Human are not rational creatures: Initially I used to believe that the mind is mainly used for making rational decisions. However Ornstein emphasized that “ rationality is one component of the mind, but it is used rarely, and in a very limited area” ( Pg 3) .This limitation in rationality is due to many reasons. One reason is because most of our reaction is done automatically based on stored fixed routines [...]

    2. A must read regarding how & why the mind operates like it does. From autopilot to focus. A-Z, Robert fills in the blanks. He goes into where & how the mind evolved from before a state of reacting to stimuli for survival, to the need of a more conscious mind needed for today's survival. The reason why we are not in control or aware of all our surroundings more often than not. He points out, the thinking mind is or was a distraction to the ready & waiting for stimuli mind needed for su [...]

    3. I enjoyed the book but half of it was about evolution which seemed to drag on. The other half of the book was very interesting and geared more towards what I was learning in class.

    4. Worth its weight in gold.There are so many ways I've applied this book as a schematic that it feels like I should read it again because it's been a few years. I work as someone that puts out forest fires so I have to stir around a lot of ash. The book talks about biological evolution, cultural evolution, and conscious evolution as a way to understand how our minds have developed and can develop. The biological catalysts for evolution that Ornstein talks about are something I experience first han [...]

    5. What does it mean to be conscious, and how did this ability develop in our evolution and why? The science is a bit dated, as there have been many breakthroughs in this area in the last 18 years, but for the lay reader, this sets up there with the Janes' "Origin of Conciousness and the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind" as cutting edge human knowledge. Ornstein is a great writer, as well. He gives heavy science a strong, enjoyable narrative. A truly great book.

    6. Very innovative and, dare I say, revolutionary ideas presented in this book. A good read for anyone interested in the brain.
