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 And thus most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything - love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more - that they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

I held on as long as I could, but I couldn't finish this book. It was just too annoying. The author believes most religious rules & being told by your parents who to marry are bullsh!t rules you do not need to follow. Thank you Captain Obvious, but these are not groundbreaking thoughts.
