This reprint of Robert Ornstein's classic presents a startling new concept of how the human mind works -- a readable and accessible introduction to the new science of the mind, where different parts of the midn are thought to come to the fore to handle different situations. This means that "we" are not the same person from moment to moment and have different memories and abilities in different situations. The book has a wonderful new cover from the drawings of Ted Dewan.
