the writer does a great job illuminating many neurological disorders by focusing on the specific studies they're tired to. unfortunately, he assumes much in his analysis of the volition of sub/unconscious processes. many explanations of nearly all of the neurological disorders here are made under the guise of pseudo-Freudianism. The author ascribes cognitions to the unconscious that he can't back up with evidence.
His analysis of dissociative identity disorder is well written and well understood, but he assigns its cause to the unconscious trying to protect the brain by hypnotizing itself. instead of staying in a functional neuropsychological paradigm which stresses the inferences of neuronal activity and psychological experience purely from the anatomy's story he takes liberties in assigning consciousness to this physical phenomena.
This can serve to muddy the waters of the claims and clear science of the text. Thankfully these assumptions stand as great metaphors and teachable concepts, but they may not reflect reality.
