Book referral for Your Road Map to Lifelong Happiness: A Guide to the Life You Want
Ken Keyes goes into quirks only in his last book Your Road Map to Lifelong
Happiness : A Guide to the Life You Want. Anatomically we have three brains: the reptilian, mammalian and
rational (and four if you count the gut which has over half of your body’s nerve
cells). The rational mind is a relatively recent addition in evolutionary history. The connections between it and the
older mammalian and reptilian brains have quirks yet to be ironed out. Your rational brain and old brains can be
working at cross purposes. Your mammalian brain is in charge of emotions. It might, for example, give you a squirt of
adrenaline when your boss points out an error you made, preparing you for fight or flight — not exactly the
most appropriate action. It is designed for survival in the jungle. Your old brain (reptilian+mammalian) tends to
make five classes of error.

Being aware of these errors helps you understand irrational emotional reactions to events both in yourself and
