    Will increased scientific understanding of our brains overturn our beliefs about moral and ethical behavior? How will increasingly powerful brain imaging technologies affect the ideas of privacy and of self-incrimination? Such thought-provoking questions are rapidly emerging as new discoveries in neuroscience have raised difficult legal and ethical dilemmas. Michael Gazzaniga, widely considered to be the father of cognitive neuroscience, investigates with an expert eye some of these controversial and complex issues.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book sets out to explain how clinicians (physicians) think when assessing a patient. How they come to conclusions and the joy or angst re: outcome. I'm a retired RN and I identified w/ these trials. I would recommend this anyone who can handle the truth. Physicians, Nurses etc are people subject to error and also amazing hard won ability to critical thinking, problem solving and to guiding a patient in the direction of improving health.
    The book is written in a novel format not as a didactic; and the author is certainly not a pedant.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it held my attention throughout. If I had the time I would have listened in one sitting easily.

    For Oxford student Kivrin, traveling back to the 14th century is more than the culmination of her studies - it's the chance for a wonderful adventure. For Dunworthy, her mentor, it is cause for intense worry about the thousands of things that could go wrong.

    Story

    This book had me interested almost from the 1st page. The twist on the plot is a time traveling historian lands at the very beginning of the BLACK PLAGUE in a small British village. Some of the narrative especially the progression of the disease and the assumed fear & despair, might be too depressing for some. Bottom line - I enjoyed the plot, content and the narrator.
