Self Comes to Mind by Antonio Damasio

A good exploration of how various brain areas may interact to produce a 'self.'

Damasio provides neuroanatomical details that most do not, while not being so dense as to be unhelpful. I appreciated the exploration and greater precision, but for me the main gist is sufficient: you are a creation of different parts of your brain interacting.

The names of the exact places/areas/structures is nice, but not nearly as important as actually comprehending the main concept.
