] "Howdy! I'm a Damasio fan too. Any other brain book recommendations?"
Hey Audry - My other favorite "brain" author besides Damasio is Joseph LeDoux. Especially his most recent book, Synaptic Self. It contains a fairly thorough chapter that summarizes the most relevant material from his previous book, The Emotional Brain, so I would start with Synaptic Self. Some of the early chapters really dig down into the electro-chemical reactions within neurons, so I tended to gloss over those chapters in favor of the less technical chapters. Hasta luego - Dallas
Hi Aud! What a great idea...
I wanted you to know I'm currently reading Ayn Rand (Fountainhead), but I see you have already read Atlas Shrugged. Anyway, I'll play with the site at some point. Thanks for being the one person who really taught me the tremendous value of being well-read- it's something I strive to be.
Hope you are doing well.
Hey Audrey! My Shelfari gets updated in spurts of unproductivity-- I'm sorely lacking the time to read and the time to play with the application. Though I've added it to my Facebook profile so I can waste a lot of time more efficiently in one place...
Hope all is well with you!
