THE EGO TRICK What Does It Mean To Be You? By Julian Baggini

The author mashes up philosophy with psychology.Buddhism,neuroscience...he considers the role of memory,demolishes a theologian's arguments for the soul,and suggests that "multiple personalities" are like different "users" of a computer system says The Guardian.

A riveting investigation of the nature of 'the self'...

    I want to thank everyone for sharing their views on the book, and for demystifying many of the concepts! It was lovely to talk with you all.

    I very much enjoyed my first meetup, and the book provoked some interesting discussion. Looking forward to future books and brunches!

    I would also suggest reading "A Fractured Mind" by Robert B Oxnam. It's mentioned in The Ego Trick, and is a fascinating read!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
