On Intelligence by Jeff Hawkins
I got this book with great anticipation as I’m really interested in the brain and the mind. Unfortunately, the book was a bit of a let-down for me. It was overly technical in some parts. In other parts of the book, it essentially re-hashed some of the more popular books on the subject.
There is no doubt that awkins is extremely smart … and I have a lot of respect for him … but if you’re debating whether to read this book and you’re not a neuroscientist, you might want to skip it and just read the reviews and notes.
