Description: Since the publication of The Psychology of Consciousness over 45,000 research papers and countless books have been written about the two sides of the brain. A cottage industry of popular books about creativity has expanded in the last years, and sophisticated readers have been left in a state of confusion. The Right Mind is the last word on the controversy.

In a brilliant and short book, psychologist Robert Ornstein makes sense of it all. The differences between left and right are not unique to humans, he finds -- they occur even at the molecular level and turn up throughout evolution. While it is true that in humans the left hemisphere is strong on language and math, it also provides much of the "basic text" of our lives. And the right hemisphere -- the lobe less studied -- isn't just creativity and soul. Its real function is to set the context, to make meaningful and memorable the details that the left brain takes in.
