I believe Ed Feser is working on a review as well.

I guess this may not qualify as a good review, but a review it is:

That's the hit piece I mentioned above by the guy who runs the academic gossip site. Does it give a fair idea of what Nagel's book is about? Does it treat the book philosophically or dismiss it ideologically?

And what about the title of Gossip Man's piece? Clearly it is not Nagel's view that we only have brains. A substance dualist holds that, but not Nagel. Or is the snarky scumbag suggesting that if one has a brain then one will see that Nagel is wrong?

Alva Noe takes Nagel seriously here and in a future article.
