How Everything Is a Story

Daniel Kahneman's "Thinking Fast and Slow" is a tough read so far. Have been most struck by his chapter on pain, where experiments show our memory focusses on the high point of discomfort, and how the pain ends.

Just like a story. The following chapter suggests we impose story structure on other experiences, on our whole life. Highly recommend this book, though this is also recommending pain, intellectual and emotional, for the reader. Naturally, I'm hoping for a happing ending!
