The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice but instead by conditioning and habit. And thus most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything - love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more - that they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

If you want to read a book that is more about the author than what he is teaching this is the one. If the word "I" were eliminated it would probably be 1/3 in length. Personal anecdotes are great to illustrate points but this felt more like a memoir than book on how to improve the mind. Many will love this book but I could not even finish. Prefer more useable content less stories.
