    This is a book about 10 "Great Ideas". Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations - to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives.

    David says: "Exceptional synthesis of psychology and philosophy"
    "Very good book, very good narrator"
    Overall

    The author has great insights on how the mind works and how did we get this far.. And the evolutionary traits that are still with us from the past, and how that influences our behavior today. Even though it helps understanding ourselves a lot, I would not call it self help, but something beyond that. Really happy about listening rather than reading too, since the narrator is great and gets you completely immersed in the narrative. In summary, way better than I expected - so much that I took the time to write this review. :)
