I’ve lea This is one of the most eye-opening books I have ever read. Unfortunately, there’s easily enough material in here for two books, one for the personal aspects and one for the science. This book more-or-less successfully combined an autobiography and a research history into a holistic narrative of the life’s work of the author.

A remarkable book about memory, it may also work as an introduction to neuroscience, though, some background in neuroanatomy and related areas may be required.

Humorous and human, this is how science should be written. All is engaging and readible and highly recommended, I will give a brief overview of the sections.

The author works chronologically and goes through his early history working with biological and neurological questions. Without some sharing of his own analysis, Kandel deprives the reader of a clear understanding of why he became a reductionist, really — other than that he just really enjoyed research, and research implies reductionism.

That sort of foundation requires more than insight, it requires experimentation.

It became more complex and maybe tedious with time, yet it was not impossible to follow the book through.
