The Accidental Mind: How Brain Evolution Has Given Us Love, Memory, Dreams and God Linden, David J. Belknap Press; 1 edition (March 31, 2007)

Despite being an extremely general overview of neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, this book manages to hit both on a variety of fascinating examples, and on some of the most controversial and problematic explananda in neuroscience today, as noted in the subtitle “How Brain Evolution Has Given Us Love, Memory, Dreams and God.”
