Reviews

An intriguing exploration of the most challenging topic in cognitive neuroscience, the executive function of the prefrontal cortex. * American Scientist * Goldberg is a good example of someone who seems to have always thought out of the box in both his personal and professional life. He has thus written a fine accessible book on executive brain functions One does not have to completely agree with a position to be stimulated by it, and Goldbergs book is certainly stimulating. * Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books * Anyone who is interested in the workings of the brain, sciences last frontier, will enjoy reading The Executive Brain The authors use of personal narrative and compelling metaphors help to make even the most technical information accessible to the general audience. * Science Editor * It is only nowthat we are beginning to get the full measure of complexity [of the living body], to see how nature and culture interact, and how brain and mind produce each other. There are a handful, a small handful, of remarkable books which address these central problems with great forcethose of Gerald Edelman and Antonio Damasio at once come to mindand to this select number, Elkhonon Goldbergs book, The Executive Brain, should surely be added. * Oliver Sacks, The New York Review of Books *
