Main tenant: because brain computes in parallel it must be quantum is wrong and lacking. It is also very difficult to follow certain arguments because of a lack of directness in explanation. At times interesting but overall a waste of 7hrs

I have been interested in consciousness theory for some time. This book is perhaps the best I have read or heard of this type, Werner R Loewenstein clearly explains the genesis and evolution of the nervous system. he also, gives up-to-date detailed discussions of the of the answer to the simple problem of consciousness that is where in the brain is it located. He is an artistic and skillful writer, and gives the best explanation that I have read as to why we evolved to be conscious. As to the difficult problem of consciousness; how we are aware, creative, and artistic; he remains strictly objective and scientific. He views the human brain has basically a exquisite computer, but leaves open the possibility that quantum computing, just like quantum sensing, may open new possibilities for explanation.
Walter Dixons narration is excellent,and could not be improved upon. I like the book in audible form so much that I bought a visual version so that I can see the illustrations and review the references.
