    The Feeling of What Happens, Damasio  
As you read this, at some level you're aware that you're reading, thanks to a standard human feature commonly referred to as consciousness. What is it--a spiritual phenomenon, an evolutionary tool, a neurological side effect? The best scien...
 
    Chicken Run, Park
