"…it does a great job of exploring the impending neuro-revolution and the sometimes scary consequences of neuro-technology.  Frank’s conclusion is encouraging; with greater self-knowledge you will find that “your personal biology is not a prison, but a lump of playdough you can help form.”  Susan Blackmore
BBC Focus
