Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I was born to very intellectual and also very neurotic parents in London in the 1950s. I got good grades in school, but I felt empty. The world of my childhood was scattered with books, but I didn’t feel at home in the spiritual crowd. #2 I have spent my life exploring what it takes to live a life of no regret. I have always been involved in social and political activism, but I have found that none of these things on their own was the central key to living a brilliant life. #3 We have this preoccupation with improving ourselves because of the development of the pre-frontal cortex, which gives us a dynamic tension between our cognitive awareness of two opposing things. On the one hand, we have the capacity to evaluate our present condition. On the other hand, we have the intuitive sense of our potential. #4 The idea that money can buy you everything was very popular in the 1980s and 1990s. The market was flooded with books about success. The good life required a Ferrari, a yacht, a mansion, and designer jewelry. The quest for perfect health, longevity, and physical beauty is another popular mythology.
