I am NOT sure if my unconscious brain loved this book and then convinced my mind that I did also. But in ether case, I would highly recommend to anyone to try to get their own mind to attempt to convince their brains to purchase this book for themselves.

These questions and many more about the mind have been asked by philosophers since humans existed. This book, in a very engaging, and simple to follow manner puts forward many arguments for the mind, the self, and who has it.
How do we relate to others, when all we have is our own brain/mind. we can assume we understand others by the way they behave, but that's only because we can understand what we feel. What about animals? Do we put a human face to them, and see us in them, or do they have minds. How about plants? Why can't we attribute a mind to them? They are all alive after all. How about corporations? Cities, countries, or crowds? Do they have a mind of their own.
This book more than any others, make one think about how narrow minded we are when we say something has a mind. "Mind"after all is only a word. How we define it can either expand our horizon or narrow it down. The author eloquently explains this by first defining the self, and our mind, and then opens our mind to the possibility that other things we may never think can have a mind may very well do. Who are we to say only humans have this incredible gift.
Great read, highly recommended for someone with big questions about the self.
