Susan Blackmore (2005)
Twenty interviews with twenty-one scientists working on consciousness, including the last interview with nobel laureate Francis Crick. Very rapidly a lot of different views on consciousness and their proponents are described by asking the interviewees the same basic set of questions: What makes the problem of consiousness so hard? Can zombies exist? Does free will exist? Because the interviews are largely un-editted, some of the statements may not be supported (anymore) by the people that pronounced them. I could not stop reading the book and because it lists popular writings of each interviewee it is a good starting point for further reading on consciousness.
