About this title

Synopsis:

Daniel C. Dennet's description of this scientist's travelogue: "How did the mind evolve? It takes a scientist of extraordinary breadth who is also a master storyteller to sketch the boundaries of this mega-narrative, and William Calvin has once again given us a feast of new perspectives, enriching the vision of our future as much as our past."

About the Author:

He is the author of The Atlantic Monthly cover story, "The Great Climate Flip-Flop", and of ten books, including The Cerebral Code, How Brains Think, The Throwing Madonna, The River that Flows Uphill, The Cerebral Symphony, and co-author of Conversations with Neil?s Brain and Lingua ex Machina.
