Vital reading. Like Pewdiepie, I was surprised the book _was_ self-help. It doesn't feel like self-help is advertised to feel.

Some very minor editing errors and oddities I encountered in the text:
The most salient error was Endnote 34 being skipped (not numbered). This means that every endnote after 34 is one less than its number. E.g. Endnote 35 is actually 34. Endnote 108 is actually 107. Endnote 220 (the final endnote) is actually 219 (there is not Endnote 220).
pp. 42-3 "It’s as if the knowledge of your body and soul falls into alignment with the knowledge of your intellect. And there’s more: such knowledge is proscriptive^, as well as descriptive." ^I think he means 'prescriptive' but *Yuri from Doki Doki Literature Club:* “Actually, that one almost worked..."
p. 121 "Careful perusal of book^ as shocking and horrific as Iris Chang’s The Rape of Nanking," ^I think he means 'a book' or 'books'
pp. 182-3 "He refuses, as well, to solve the problems of mortal vulnerability ^in a merely personal manner)" ^I think he meant to put a '(' here
p. 319 "It’s very useful to attend to tears in such situations." 'attend to tears' is an odd phrase--is it Canadian?
pp. 323-4 "In any case, it is certain that a woman needs consciousness ^ be rescued," ^Does he mean 'to be rescued'? (For context's sake, he's writing about how consciousness comes to Sleeping Beauty in the form of the Prince who rescues her.)
p. 375 Endnote 42 (actually 41): Pettis, J. B. (2010). “Androgyny BT^.” In D. A. Leeming, K. Madden, & S. Marlan (Eds.). Encyclopedia of psychology and religion (pp. 35-36). Boston, MA: Springer US. ^What does 'BT' mean after 'Androgyny'? This isn't an error or an oddity--I just want to know what it means.
