“You are the most fascinating bit of machinery that ever was. You do yourself less than justice. It is said that men are only interested in themselves. The truth is that, as a rule, men are interested in every mortal thing except themselves. They have a habit of taking themselves for granted, and that habit is responsible for nine-tenths of the boredom and despair on the face of the planet.”
In this classic and timeless work, Arnold Bennett explores the brain as a tool for making our lives easier and our interactions with others smoother. “The brain is the diplomatist which arranges relations between our instinctive self and the universe, and it fulfils its mission when it provides for the maximum of freedom to the instincts with the minimum of friction.” The Human Machine combines tremendous wisdom with accessibility to better ourselves in a way that can easily be put into practice. Very powerful.
