Publisher Description

The cover story reveals how painful, long-term memories might actually be erased with the use of drugs at just the right moment. Then, an article that asks a provocative question - can we cure fear? Following that, it's an examination of anger -- should you control your emotions or let them rip? Next, it's a look at the persistence of myths -- and their connection to the brain's biological needs. Our fifth article seeks to explode one myth -- about the value of self-esteem. Following that, it's an investigation into why anyone is left-handed. And our final article profiles Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, and his long battle with mental illness.

Horrifying

Promotes memory erasing as a good idea, but if so how could we ever learn from our mistakes? They claim memory erasing could help rape victims. You can hack the brain but not the soul and not the body's cell memory. Life is sometimes tragic but amnesia is not a shortcut to well being. The scientists behind this seem to have lost touch with humanity.
