    Here’s why it isn’t worthless; The same brain structures that underly addiction and obesity make the analysis of it distorted.
    Salience: same way we track shiney objects, we IGNORE our background of habits and don’t look for avoiding mistakes but look for “the right stuff”.
    Humor and sharing personal story publicly (self-perception theory) are ways to overwrite conditioning (hence, book).
