Eye Opening

I listened to this book in about a week, and it's already making me perceive the world in a different way. From the guy at McDonalds who smiled when he asked if I wanted to donate a dollar to St. Jude to the man who gave my church a timeline on the purchase of an old church building because he has other "interested parties," I am more aware of the compliance tactics that people inadvertently or intentionally use around me to encourage me to behave in a certain way. This book is a classic.

Life decisions

This book provides excellent insight to how we should responsibly challenge authority and outside influences in our lives. We are conditioned from birth to unconsciously conform and comply on societal queues; we must make a conscious effort to scrutinize our decisions and ensure they fulfill our needs and not our wants.
