The first level of the network is the book's individual 43 short chapters. The second level comprises 158 topics. These topics are listed at the very end of the book in a section titled Nodal Network. The third level has almost 400 nodes. These are keywords which link to the book's extensive annotated glossary. These keywords include all secondary nodes, plus about 240 additional concepts or processes. Dan Siegel views these other 240 network nodes as providing background for understanding.
From the point of view of someone who is not familiar with neurological research like me, these additional 240 concepts are absolute necessities. Without understanding them, much of the chapter text would be incomprehensible. For me the tertiary level of organization is necessary to getting a reward from this book.
A Kindle makes easy the task of moving from text to glossary; and back again. The procedure is: When reading a chapter I encounter a keyword that I don't understand. Using the moving cursor I select the keyword and push the "Enter" key. Rapidly the screen changes. At the top of the new screen is a glossary explanation for the keyword. After reading the explanation, I press the "Back" key to return to the chapter text I am reading. This process provides an almost seamless experience of reading.
In this way I match my reading of each sentence to my current ability to understand. An expert might seldom need to use glossary entries. In contrast I often use glossary explanations. The choice is yours.
Easy availability of glossary explanations allows Daniel Siegel to write each chapter concisely, so as to focus on key issues.
The content of this book challenges my understanding. I suspect that I am the type of reader for whom this book is written. Without understanding glossary explanations, I would be lost. Having that understanding, I mostly find this book a fascinating read.
I wish to highlight another unusual feature about this book. The book's nodal network enables a reader to explore by starting reading at any chapter; at any of the 158 secondary nodes; or alternatively, by starting at any of the almost 400 glossary definitions. A reader can then follow a personally selected path, and go on any sidetrack needed to pursue a topic of immediate interest.
In conclusion I wish to thank Daniel Siegel for his many efforts to bring an innovative body of research work to the general public. All of us have a mind which interconnects with other people; a mind which interconnects with body and with emotions. We each have a mind that better functions when fully integrated. This book provides understanding for how to foster that integration.
For the younger generation of neuroscientists & medical practitioners out there, I'll put it this way:
it's structured as a "Choose Your Own Adventure Book" for the social brain. And as you will soon learn or be convinced of, there are no individual human brains in nature. Siegel demonstrates otherwise, integrating eloquent research and application of research findings from the likes of Cozolino, Porges, and Damasio into this fine text.
The only thing that could make this better, is more evidence from more research that has not yet been done. But since time travel isn't possible, I recommend rolling with this. I'm even encouraged that this could have significant clinical relevance, given the praise it's received from friends.
I already touched upon the nature of the topic; the field of interpersonal neurobiology truly is a remarkable approach to first defining the mind (apparently a practice avoided or believed to be impossible/unnecessary) and subsequently building a cogent framework for the rest of the phenomena of mind, energy, and information processes to be understood. Ease of comprehension is critical in allowing non-experts, like myself and most of you, to effectively integrate ;) the information that lies within this 500+ page guide; Daniel Siegel makes the wise decision of carefully defining all key terms. Furthermore, these terms are organized in two different ways that allow for a truly "pocket guide" experience that need not a substantial investment of time to learn something of great use. Daniel Siegel makes use of an annotated index which serves as a glossary and index of sorts, followed by a nodal index which lists the key terms as they first appear with corresponding terms that are interrelated in the network of facts and concepts, allowing one to guide their learning based on whatever their inclination is at that moment.
I do not have any qualms about this book. And though I have not dissected it completely, I'm sure I will never feel disappointed with any of the areas that have led to my appreciation of it up to now.
