A new edition of the bestselling classic – published with a special introduction to mark its 10th anniversary

This pioneering account sets out to understand the structure of the human brain – the place where mind meets matter. Until recently, the left hemisphere of our brain has been seen as the ‘rational’ side, the superior partner to the right. But is this distinction true?

Drawing on a vast body of experimental research, Iain McGilchrist argues while our left brain makes for a wonderful servant, it is a very poor master. As he shows, it is the right side which is the more reliable and insightful. Without it, our world would be mechanistic – stripped of depth, colour and value. 

“A veritable tour de force, gradually and skilfully revealed. I know of no better exposition of the current state of functional brain neuroscience.”—W. F. Bynum, TLS
 
“A profound examination.”—Philip Pullman
 
“Persuasively argues that our society is suffering from the consequences of an over-dominant left hemisphere losing touch with its natural regulative ‘master’ the right.  Brilliant and disturbing.”—Salley Vickers, a Guardian Best Book of the Year
 
“Clear, penetrating, lively, thorough and fascinating. . . . I couldn’t put it down.”—Mary Midgley, The Guardian

Recensione:

'One of the few contemporary works deserving classic status.'--Nicholas Shakespeare, The Times

'Persuasively argues that our society is suffering from the consequences of an over-dominant left hemisphere losing touch with its natural regulative 'master' the right. Brilliant and disturbing.'--Salley Vickers, a Guardian 'Best Book of the Year'

'A landmark. . . It tells a story you need to hear, of where we live now.'--Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times

'A seminal book.'--Professor Ervin László, Huffington Post

'McGilchrist describes broad [intellectual] movements and famous figures as if they were battles and soldiers in a 2,500-year war between the brain's hemispheres. . .A scintillating intelligence is at work.'--Economist

'A fascinating book. . . [McGilchrist] is a subtle and clever thinker, and unusually qualified to range with such authority over so many different domains of knowledge.'--Harry Eyres, Financial Times
