An Alchemy of Mind: the Marvel and Mystery of the Brain
AN ALCHEMY OF MIND: The Marvel and Mystery of the Brain
By Diane Ackerman (Scribner)
Poet Ackerman contemplates the nature of thought. Her survey hits its best stride discussing creativity and the meaning of the self: For example, an overly ambitious camping expedition crisply illustrates the feelings of mental exhaustion and disorientation. But her metaphoric style sometimes clutters rather than clarifies.
