I couldn't get very far into this book. The book looks at neuroscience from a Buddist perspective. I prefer to take my science straight, the hard-facts-dispassionate-sort of science. This book is cushy soft. I might have guessed it would be this way given the Dalai Lama is on the back cover. The Dalai Lama has a utopian vision of the world and he thinks he can realize that vision through changing peoples minds/brains. He looks to Science to support the feasibility of this endeavour. This project is as realistic as someone who truly wants and anticipates the second coming of the Garden of Eden. From the perspective of Evolution, there never was a garden of Eden and there never will be one. Science can never support the notion that we will attain the second Garden of Eden. So he is cherry picking and that is not Science. It is admirable to hope and work for positive change but you can't call it Science. Even if the book gets the facts straight, it is not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
