What's the best book to provide an up-to-date view on our current understanding of the human mind (and brain)?

Back in my college days I was fascinated with how the human brain/mind works. I read numerous essays and books on AI, philosophy of the mind, cognitive neuroscience, etc., including a lot of Daniel Dennett (Brain Storms, Consciousness Explained, etc.).
Most of these were published 20+ years ago, so I imagine that there must be a more recent overview of what we know (and what we don't know) about the most sophisticated structure in the known universe.
