Professor Dudai had an excellent idea: a dictionary/encyclopedia of terms used in Cognitive Science. Each entry (one-two pages long) defines and explains a term, the history and the current state of research. They are written in plain English, with relatively little technicalities involved. One wishes he had also devoted entries to more common terms such as (gosh) cognition, brain, life, in order to make it truly a beginners' introduction to the science of mind. The alphabetical list of entries is followed by 66 pages of references. The book is an ideal tool for both students and novices.
