"We warmly recommend this book for experimental psychologists with an interest in attention, action and cognitive neuroscience. It has intrigued us, as it takes a very frugal perspective that leads to profound and very promising new insights: Attention and action are closely interconnected systems, and the links between them can be explored in cognitive neuroscience. It leaves us quite satisfied and curious for further findings and insights that may result from future research in the growing field of cognitive neuroscience." - Fred W Mast and Pascal Wallisch, Cambridge, USA in The Swiss Journal of Psychology 60 (2), 2001, 109-112
