Publisher's Summary

As humans, we get to choose what we believe and who we want to be. This book is a ruthlessly pragmatic guide to creating your own answers to life's biggest questions.

Each of this book's four chapters covers one of the most important questions a person must ask themselves: What is the purpose of my life? How can I best realize the purpose of my life? Who do I want to be? How do I want other people to think of me?

Rather than give you answers to these questions, this guide provides a framework that helps you develop your own answers while equipping you with the neuroscientific tools necessary to transform yourself into whomever you choose to be.

If you are looking for an easy-listening book that will make you feel good about yourself, this isn't the book for you. If you want to take the time to think hard, take full ownership of the person you have allowed yourself to become, and permanently transform yourself into the best iteration of that person then you have found your book.

DIY Philosophy to find your “meaning of life”

Pragmatist’s guide to life is the most useful book on philosophy/science I have ever read. It is thorough, unbiased, clear and motivational. It puts every philosophy into question with fascinating thought experiments. It outlines research on how society and biology lead us to self sabotaging habits. It offers practical suggestions for how to analyze your value system to create your own better self. This should be mandatory reading for ALL PSYCHOLOGISTS and anyone involved with “self improvement”.

Thought provoking! Beyond self-improvement.

PGTL goes beyond self-improvement to something in the realm of “life value optimization.” No matter what your life’s “objective purpose” may be (this book helps you figure that out!)— you’ll question your current beliefs and what truly matters. For anyone with an interest in self-improvement, psychology, philosophy, or with an open mind.
