In this brilliant and controversial book, Steven Pinker, one of the world's leading cognitive scientists, explains what the mind is, how it evolved, and how it allows us to see, think, feel, interact, enjoy the arts and ponder the mysteries of life. And he does it with the clarity and style that earned The Language Instinct worldwide critical acclaim and several major prizes.
'Pinker has a remarkable capacity to explain difficult ideas and he writes with the comic verve of Martin Amis or Woody Allen... How the Mind Works will change the way your mind works.'
Elaine Showalter, The Times
