DAVID EAGLEMAN: INCOGNITO
David Eagleman's Sum: Forty Tales From The Afterlives is a short, profound book that has inspired hundreds of thousands of readers. An opera is in the works, and Brian Eno wrote some music to accompany it. How cool is that? Eagleman, a neuroscientist with a creative bent, has also written a provocative essay called Why the Net Matters, which is available as an iPad app. His new book, Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, is full of cutting-edge thinking on brain research, presented with a relaxed, conversational hipness that makes it a pleasure to read.
