What do you want people to take away from the book?

The sense they could lead fuller, happier and better lives if they were more aware of the factors prompting them to act the way they do. People and policymakers need to take heed of the effect the unconscious has in our everyday life.

I love the premise, and the title, of The Hidden Brain. But will it show me practical methods to uncover some of the subconscious and unconscious mind? Not only would it be good to know what base impulses may be lurking there, but I suspect some good things have been repressed that I'd like to have back.
