A sweeping view of human intellectual development and mind comparison. (Speaking of which: any readers of reviewer Kityty above ["Too Technical..."] will hope along with me that she will first learn her "Englixh" and then decide whether or not to take up "schechty" reviewing!). This book is a panoramic vista of what is known about human (and animal) brain geography and function, and it is written with the same multi-disciplinary knowledge that makes Cosmos so beautiful. I loved his compressed "Cosmic Calendar!"

Sagan's gifted style of writing manages to take difficult topics and present them in a readable, fascinating, and thought provoking manner. Sagan's works should be required reading in any high school science class.

Easily one of my favorite books that I never get tired of reading, and I have been reading this and his other books since I was 10 years old. It seems that the kityty person is not intelligent enough to understand the concepts even as elucidated by one of the great thinkers and teachers of our time. I hope that my 5-star review brings the average up to negate the effect of that ignoramus below. What a disgrace to humanity. Perhaps she would be found in the lower right hand corner of the brain/body mass chart?

One of my all-time favorites, I actually read this book with, of all people, my Grandmother, who was at least equally enchanted by it.
The book is a fascinating account of the evolution of the human brain, and makes some powerful points about the ways in which our reptilian and other ancestors are still very much with us.

Of the 4 books I've read from Sagan, this is the second best (just after Cosmos). Everything seems so logical at reading it. I'm a Catholic, a real believer in God and evolution. Why must everyone try to make a fight between science and Religion, while they can shake hands? If I was given a brain, it was for me to use it and take the most out of it, otherwise, I would be a geocentrist non-thinker. It's a shame we had lost a liberal thinker and scientist as Dr. Sagan, he must be on better life now.

Sagan never lost his child-like wonder when describing the world around us. His writings are, for the most part, understandable and logical. We lost a great deal when he died, and I lost one of my favorite authors. A thought in one of his books stays with me: On a beach, pick up a handful of sand. You're holding roughly 2500 grains of sand, which is about how many stars you can see on a clear night. There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on all the beaches in the world.

Eventhough it is true that this book was written a long time ago, its basic purpose which is to show that men can contruct their own reality when done through an uncompromised acceptance of the power of critical thinking and science, will in the end bring us closer to our true nature. His fantastic explanations about the nature of the brain are only a tool for that goal.

Not only entertaining, Sagan's work is informative. His genius writing style makes scientific technical writing accessible to practically anyone. Sagan's theories on the evolution of human intellgence are thought provoking; he has answers to many questions that are, for the most part, untouched. Once again, Sagan's brilliant mind has given us insight on a topic that effects the human race more than anything else, intelligence

I would love to order this book to have it in my library again. I particularly remember the fascinating accounts of left and right brain functions as perceived by Sagan. The experiments done with people who had had left and right brains separated because of prolonged epileptic attacks were what first opened me up to further readings on this topic.

This book offers the non-technical reader a good overview of the functions of the different sections of the brain, alongside their evolutionary information. Through interesting examples, well researched data, and simple diagrams Sagen explains how our brain works, and speculates on how it might evolve in the future.
