MY RATING: ★★★★/ 5
Anyone knowing me would know how much I’m passionate about my field of study, neurosciences, and this book perfectly describes the fundamental aspects as well as the psychological ones that I rarely see people do.
He describes his experience and work with his patients dealing with neurological disease over 29 years. When I read non-fiction, I’m always afraid that I get bored by all the formal aspects, but he managed to mix a god amount of science and story that keeps us on edge
Reading this book makes me appreciate all the efforts that we all went through, all the knowledge we acquired. The mistakes we made lead us to all the information we have now and more mysteries to uncover. It makes me realize how one tiny device that we use was well-thought, and how all the science generations before us have helped us come to this point of life.
The big theme of the book is consciousness, more importantly, the scientists in the novel are trying to find a way of understanding the vegetative state in neurological disease patients and how their consciousness work during this state. Some even have found away to communicate with them, which helps a lot.
I also want to give a huge shoutout to my co-blogger Lashaan, who’s been on fire lately !! I couldn’t write any posts before because of my constant traveling and I caught a cold ahah on my way back from Phu Quoc. Here’s me in The Love Garden sending you guys a lot of love!! 😀
