The quest to understand the mind has motivated some of history's most profound thinkers. But only in our own time are we beginning to see the true complexity of this quest, as today's philosophers draw on the latest evidence from neuroscience, psychology, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and other fields to probe deeply into the inner workings of the mind.

The path to personal and professional fulfillment is rarely straight. Ask anyone who has achieved his or her biggest goals or whose relationships thrive, and you'll hear stories of many unexpected detours along the way. What separates those who master these challenges and those who get derailed? The answer is agility - emotional agility.

Good core concept, but Mel ruined it.

Maybe ruin is harsh, I liked the concept, and sure she dragged it out... but so much she self-appreciates herself, taking many opportunities to say how she and other say she is all that. You can always tell she is reading a story and not just speaking because it actually sounds humble. Also, she generalizes, saying if you get an impulse that you want, don’t think, just count and do it... well in many scenarios that is a horrible idea (ie. Criminal acts). That aside, it’s my main point that bugged me, that and that she spend a whole chapter talking about how she just finished this course which is the real one that will change your life... like seriously, I bought this one, don’t spend twenty minutes selling me something else! With a few changes this could have been much better, but instead it made me want to steer clear of this author.
