"With his explanation of the hidden logic behind the brain's quirks, Eliezer Sternberg establishes himself as a fresh new voice for neuroscience." Sebastian Seung, author of "Connectome "
"
Eliezer J. Sternberg s "NeuroLogic "is an eye-opener, an entertaining, yet thought-provoking investigation of how our brains work including why we do some of the strange things we do. Sternberg pries open our minds to expose the way our brain operates, providing insight into topics ranging from our perceptions and habits, to hypnosis, language, and learning." Neurologic" expertly guides the reader through the unconscious logic of the human brain. I came away from this book with an enhanced sense of who I am as a person. Leonard Mlodinow, author of "Subliminal"
In "NeuroLogic, " Sternberg takes us on a fascinating exploration of the impulses and quirksthatmake us human.An innovative, engaging look inside the black box that is the mind. Maria Konnikova, author of "Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes"
Dr. Sternberg's enthusiasm for neuroscience bursts out of every page. In clear language he tackles a series of fascinating neurological curiosities that are windows into the wonder of the brain. Dr. Sally Satel, author of "Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience"

An enchanting journey . . . the author writes with brio and dash . . . of the brain s ability to draw the story of our life, from experience and from thin air. "Kirkus Reviews"

" Neurologic" is an exciting adventure, bringing the most fascinating mysteries of the mind to a very human level. It is a deeply engaging, thought-provoking, and fun read. Sternberg reaches a new level of popular neuroscience literature in the footsteps of Oliver Sacks but with fresh, novel appeal. Hal Blumenfeld, MD, PhD, author of "Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases"
With his explanation of the hidden logic behind the brain s quirks, Eliezer Sternberg establishes himself as a fresh new voice for neuroscience. Sebastian Seung, author of "Connectome "
Each chapter in Sternberg s book reads like a detective novel. His passion for neurology shines through every page. Unlike many brain books, it is encyclopedic in range and scholarly in content, yet highly readable. It is also a valuable antidote to the neuron envy syndrome that many philosophers and psychologists suffer from. VS Ramachandran, author of "The Tell-Tale Brain
"
The more we learn about the brain the more illogical it seems we are, until you look inside our skulls and examine the brain from an inside perspective, at which point a certain neuro-logic emerges. Eliezer Sternberg s brilliant examination of the human mind reveals the many reasons for our many seemingly unreasonable beliefs and actions. If you want to know why people think and act as they do in such irrational ways, "NeuroLogic" is the first book you should turn to for some rational answers. Michael Shermer, author of "The Believing Brain"

Sternberg is not content to remain within the cozy confines of his medical specialty. That s revealing, not just of his prodigious intellect but also because, as he refuses to be just another neurologist, the subject of his inquiry also refuses to be just another organ....[an]audacious, wise and compelling book. Marianne Szegedy-Maszak, The Washington Post
A research-rich study of the neurological circuitry behind the narratives we use to make sense of things. Sternberg cracks open the brain s black box to examine its parallel conscious and unconscious systems, and explores states from dreaming and acts on autopilot to memory, hallucinations and trauma. Nature
