The human mind is capable of believing in the most dazzling paradise, but also in the most terrible hell. In our brain — more than in reality— we find many of the factors that determine our afflictions and our happiness. Walter Riso explains to us the manner in which we process the information that is crucial to reach our wellbeing. Thinking rationally, without falling into illusions or beliefs without reason, results in not only successfully confronting life, but also causes us to be happier by maintaining our psychological health and achieving self-realization. This book invites you to recognize the traps that our minds set, and to have the courage to face our existence as it is, without distortions or false tranquilities.
