- Rule #3 Every brain is wired differently
- Rule #4 We donít pay attention to boring things

Overall remarks and questions
- chapters tend to be opened by pathological case, thus showing that the "average" behavior, even if expected, is not the sole behavior
- consequently showing how useful the correct is
- also showing what related problems could be avoided
- chapters also open on ideas and suggestion for decision makers, in particular for the education system overall but also the workplace
- multiple metaphors of software as pre-established brain circuitry
So in the end, it was about X and was based on Y.
Point A, B and C are debatable because of e, f and j.
