In this, his latest book, Dr. Daniel Siegel takes the reader on a journey into what the mind actually is and what it means to be human. The journey begins with Dr. Siegel’s own personal story and goes on to incorporate the latest findings that science has to offer on what the mind is and how it functions. The book sets out to answer the questions of what, where, why and when of the mind, and can we be both human and kind.
I found this book to be a very compelling read. I am a bit of a psychology buff, which is what drew me to the book in the first place. The material here is very dense at times and for a lay person like me, required close reading to understand all of the concepts. I believe the book is intended more for an audience of healthcare professionals and researchers, nevertheless, I was able to glean a lot of new information and understanding after reading it. I would recommend this book to mental health and other scientific professionals.
