Required reading

I think I mentioned it here before, but everyone in BCI should read The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Phil Kennedy made me read it back during my days and Neural Signals Inc, and while it isn't particularly stirring or eloquently written, the time you take reading it forces you to take the perspective of a locked-in patient. Looks like they have made a movie out of the book, and Slate has the review (spoiler: the reviewer liked it). (IMDb link) Netflix subscribers can save it to their queue so that it is added when available on DVD (I just did).
