Scientists consider it the "hard problem"—trying to understand why we feel a subjective sense of self, and how it arises in the brain. For neuropsychologist Mark Solms, discovering how consciousness comes about has been a lifetime's quest. Drawing upon experiences with patients, Solms shares insights gleaned from their uncanny conversations, which expose much about the brain's obscure reaches. Intriguingly, Solms also explains how we can all recognize the workings of our own minds for what they really are, including every stray thought, pulse of emotion, and shift of attention.

"Remarkably clear, accommodating and exciting to read…. A necessary reminder that rational thinking isn't all it seems to be."—Washington Post
