    Why do you still feel fat after losing weight? Why do you duck your head when you drive into an underground parking garage? Why are your kids so enthralled by video games? The answers to these questions can be found in a new understanding of how your brain interacts with your body, the space around your body, and the social world.

    Michael says: "This explains alot"
    "Deepens the wonder of being human"
    Overall

    This book takes some concentrated listening, and when driving or walking, I often had to go back to hear something I'd missed, again. Might be better to listen to while on a treadmill, or doing nothing. It helped me understand how, right now, as I'm typing, a million unconscious, deeply neurologically burned-in propensities and abilities are allowing the tiny little bit of consciousness I call 'me' to write. It's a study of very intriguing scientific discoveries and observations which lead to equally interesting self-reflection.
