I have always been intrigued by the specific moment when, as we sit waiting in the audience, the door to the stage opens and a performer steps into the light; or take the other perspective, the moment when a performer who waits in semidarkness sees the same door open, revealing the lights, the stage, and the audience. (from the first line)

Praise

Chicago Tribune
"In FEELING OF WHAT HAPPENS Damasio supports his proposals by describing a number of devastating neurological conditions drawn from his years of clinical experience. He discusses these with sensitivity and respect....[FELLING OF WHAT HAPPENS] fuels hope that we will ultimately identify the brain structures underlying all facets of mentality. It also demonstrates such knowledge can deepen our understanding of who we are." 1/23/2000

Bloomsbury Review
"[Damasio] is not merely that rare writer who can render crackling prose on a sometimes murky subject. He is an active and groundbreaking researcher in the field of neurobiology....Only the most audacious of scientists would undertake an exploration that focuses on two such nebulous variables as consciousness and feelings and attempt to relate them anatomically and evolutionarily....You must pay attention as you follow [his] trailblazing. Do not skip over the neuroanatomy lessons and you will be well compensated with fresh insights and complexities." - Julie Mayeda November 1999
