Dr. Joseph is very meticulous in his writing of this book as well as his many other books related to specific areas of the brain. As a neuropsychologist I have found his works to be exceptional. He not only talks about the brain as a functional unit but also how it relates to how we deal with life on a everyday basis. It is important to recognize that within the structures of the brain personality is created. Personality or mind is not separate from the brain it is expressed through the various lobes of the brain which Dr. Joseph has painstakingly put together. I have shared his work with patients and more recently one who has sustained injury to the parietal lobe.
If you have a brain you need to learn more about how it functions.
so i would say, they are cheap in price and informative, but really embarrassing in its errors - one almost wonders if the people that actually produced the book understand english. i'm glad i have them. for example, i was reading the parietal lobe text at a coffee shop, which i could never do with most neuroscience texts. but i think most people would find the quality of the production irritating.

so, it's a mixed bag. it depends on what you are seeking. for me, at the price, it is like ripping apart a monolithic text, and being able to carry small pieces around that are not deep but broad. hopefully that makes sense. i read these books as self-study, and have at least 4 different neuroscience text books, and find each has their strengths and weaknesses. if you only buy one neuroscience book, i would not recommend these puppies. but as auxiliary they are fun to have.
I am a second year psychiatry resident and I found this material to be accessibly presented and very interesting!

Would recommend to others with some science background.
