I love this book! It would have to be way at the top of my list of books that changed my life and how I look at things around me! Does include a very large number of difficult philosophical and psychological terms, but if you read through, you can get most of them in context.

This is supposed to be a book about perceptions, so I guess I can’t fault him on factual flippancy. He seems to be saying, though, that these perceptions are at least somewhat universal. Which is ridiculous, least of all because I can’t relate to most of them.<br/>He brings up some interesting ideas, but only in passing, before he goes off again on pseudo-psychological babbles, passing them off as universal Truths.<br/>I’m only half way through, hopefully it will get better?<br/><br/>Edit: it didn't. It did, however, make me doubt a few things I took for granted. Not because of any convincing evidence or arguments, but because he seems to take for granted the opposite.
