Fate has come through. I am awake. Another day in which to be human. Do human things. Be subject to humanness in the world. I get to choose between being awake, making choices that foster growth in me and others and the path of struggle. I see where I am bombarded with negative messages through advertising and media - want more, want your own, want this. Want, want, want is the message that keeps me walking in the dark. Wake up and want less. Less stuff but more clarity. Wanting is so insidious. Here I am professing not to want stuff and at the same time I’m considering going on a long backpacking adventure this summer.
Everything either contributes to my character development or detracts.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A biography of the relationship between two researchers who shook up economics and psychology. This story develops Amos and Danny both as a unit and as separate individuals. Later in the book, their foibles and faults are exposed and the consequences to their relationship are a bit complicated. In the end their friendship prevails. Nice complement to “Thinking Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman.
