It's been a good hundred or so books since one has expanded and deepened my knowledge of myself such as this book did. Instant top 5.

Straw man arguments and fitting rebuttals.

This book is a series of valid reason why the self aggrandizing "adlerian psychology" is fraught, then arguments made against a straw-man version of the concern: "SO YOU'RE SAYING..."

Built up to such a level, could not but fall short

Great book, historically significant etc, but was certainly over hyped in my opinion. Having said that, the themes of human capacity for great evil were no revelation for me.

Can summarize the whole bookin one sentence.

"Bad stuff down, good stuff up". The end. Good message, but major waste of time.

This book perfectly describes and advocates for the exact system responsible for the deaths of over 200 million people in the past century spread across half a dozen failed state experiments. This book is an ill conceived post-hoc justification for distain of authority, as dangerous as it is stupid; EXTREMELY.

Best book I've ever re-read.

This book is been more influential in my life than any other piece of information, person, or event.
in the two years post first reading, i have drastically redesign my life, and now permanently travel the world in my dream motorhome, or latte fraction of the cost of my old rent.
Subsequently, i am exponentially happier, wiser and more fulfilled.

Great book overall.

I would have liked less about the physical mechanisms by which the brain operates (the first 14 chapters) and more about how they manifest in behaviours (the last 10 chapters).

Overall, very informative, entertainingly presented and a couple of big light bulb moments even for someone who has read quite a few books on the subject.

Informative and pointed.

Great for anyone interested in the fight against the corrupt media and their politics of character assassination.
