What is distinguished in the book is its adoption of an important principle, which is that feelings that are known – according to logic – are true, and maybe innate. It calls on us need to dig into ourselves; To embrace our exceptional ideas, and live our experience in life according to what we see, while arming ourselves with the best of skills, principles, science, and ethics.
