There is a school of thought which says that authors should write their conclusions before they write the body of the book. In my case this was out of the question because although I knew what I was going to write about, I had no idea of where it was going to lead. These conclusions will fill in the gaps about some of the arrival points. There was one place, however, where I knew I was going and that was the social nature of the brain.
