In this Pulitzer Prize finalist and national bestseller, one of the world's leading cognitive scientists tackles the workings of the human mind. What makes us rational―and why are we so often irrational? How do we see in three dimensions? What makes us happy, afraid, angry, disgusted, or sexually aroused? Why do we fall in love? And how do we grapple with the imponderables of morality, religion, and consciousness? ?How the Mind Works? synthesizes the most satisfying explanations of our mental life from cognitive science, evolutionary biology, and other fields to explain what the mind is, how it evolved, and how it allows us to see, think, feel, laugh, interact, enjoy the arts, and contemplate the mysteries of life. This new edition of Pinker's bold and buoyant classic is updated with a new foreword by the author.

@bentossell I really gave an effort to try and tackle this book, but I kept finding myself drifting off into other thoughts. If I missed a key point in his example I found it hard to understand the pervading point. However when I focused on a section from beginning to end, I could follow his logic and I gained some really interesting insights which furthered my appreciation for anyone working in the A.I. Field. @_jacksmith Did you read the book cover to cover, or just specific sections?
