“A skeptic’s Guide to the Brain: What Neuroscience Can and Cannot tell us about Ourselves,” by Robert Burton (2013). Some of the conclusions about brain/mind that are coming from modern neuroscience are genuine advances in our knowledge, but Burton shows that some are overreaching, wrong-headed, self-serving, or just plain ridiculous. He also has a vision of how to think about what the mind might be and how it works.
