Featured Book:  Consciousness and the Brain, by Stanislas Deheane.

Stanislas Deheane tackles the problem of consciousness, and tells us how his own research is helping to explain how that three-and-a-half pound lump of squishy gray mater inside your head does what it does.

And on the nightstand:  Time Reborn, by Lee Smolin; and The Idea Factory, by Jon Gertner.
