Review:

With astonishing descriptive precision, the author compels the reader to think and feet along with him as his fingers progress toward intimacy with the keyboard. This is at once a work of minutely detailed phenomenology and a virtuoso performance of language in action. Psychology Today A dazzling and deeply probing study of the relationship between human consciousness and behavior. -- Jack Kroll Newsweek
