I’ve started to read this book and I’ve already found something worth sharing.
In the introduction a small but key statement is made about the fact that “to feel good is not the measure of everything” and that “we can feel good for the wrong reason”.
The author is not elaborating on this as if this would be a common agreement for any reasonable person.
I agree with her position about the criteria that should not be driving the behavior, but unfortunately this is not the general case: the ethic of selecting what makes feel good (or better) is shared by a lot of people.
And what is even worse is that is becoming more and more a short-term target: select what makes feel good now
If the first 20 pages are a good indication of what is to come it will be a good book
