Now I am using this book instead for quick daily fixes of Dennett's wit and insights. I am at 2/3 of it and I am loving it. True, as many have posted, the "wow!" factor of DDI is not there in every single page, but it still is a remarkable collection of thought provoking case histories and experiments. Highly recommended for thinkers in all fields.
This was a needed summary book and after you read this appetizer you can then plunge into Dennett's masterpieces : Consciousness Explained, Elbow Room, Darwin's Dangerous Idea and Freedrom Evolves.
