I believe that this book is about recognizing your true self from your ego. The ego is just a part of yourself that wants to defend itself and make it better than others. This ego part of you would want to fight back if someone came up challenged you in anyway. (You're fat. You're a liar. I'm right and you're wrong.) I know I have this defensiveness a lot and being aware of this want to engage in an ego versus ego battle is helpful. At least if I am aware, I can stop it before it begins and also realize that the other person is not cruel or evil, they are simply not aware. They are driven by an ego a need to feel better than others.
I'm interested in hearing what else he has to say and will be listening to the rest during one our long drives. :)
