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 And thus most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything - love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more - that they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.

A bulk of the book was filled with anecdotes in which he portrays himself as a failure or a computing nerd so that he could establish credibility in his "methods". I found the information provided to be coercive, repetitive, and uninformative. Definitely just a run-of-the-mill self-help book that tries to masquerade itself as something else.
