This review is from: The Ego Trick (Paperback)
I may have given this book 5 stars because I agree with 99% of the conclusions it comes to about the existence or not of the "self". But I probably agree with everything in "On Being" too, but "On Being" is unreadable and smug whereas this book is readable and, if not exactly humble, at least with a decent modesty.
I liked the reflections on "personhood" rather than "humanness".
The last chapter on the future of the self was eye opening. And I had not thought hard about the difference between "human" and "humane" until I read that chapter.
