A refreshing new paradigm for brain function

Reviewed: 03-19-09

I greatly enjoyed On Intelligence. Not only is it well written and easy to get into (at least in most cases), but it introduces a new paradigm for neurological functioning that will probably replace the models most commonly used by engineers, doctors and academics. This new paradigm has the potential to lead to enormous breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and other areas that stand to greatly benefit mankind in general and individuals in particular. This is a truly multi-disciplineary book that I found both entertaining and fascinating.
