Support for book on finding terminal goals and higher purpose

As part of my pro­ject of spread­ing ra­tio­nal­ity to a broad au­di­ence and thus rais­ing the san­ity wa­ter­line, I’m writ­ing a book on us­ing ra­tio­nal­ity-in­formed strate­gies to help peo­ple find ter­mi­nal val­ues, with an ori­en­ta­tion to­ward en­courag­ing a pos­i­tive and ex­ter­nally-ori­ented higher pur­pose car­ried out in an effec­tive way. To be ap­peal­ing a wide au­di­ence, the book is couched in the lan­guage of self-im­prove­ment, while also be­ing based on and study­ing much re­cent re­search in the sphere of mean­ing and pur­pose, from psy­chol­ogy, cog­ni­tive neu­ro­science, medicine, etc. The goal of the book is to get read­ers to use ra­tio­nal­ity-in­formed, sci­ence-based meth­ods to find their long-term goals, and also to get them in­ter­ested in ra­tio­nal, sci­ence-based think­ing more broadly, the whole point of my pro­ject.

To fund the costs of pub­lish­ing the book, I’m run­ning a crowd­fund­ing cam­paign, and the cam­paign page de­scribes the book in full. I would ap­pre­ci­ate any sup­port for the cam­paign, as well as feed­back on op­ti­miz­ing the story and re­wards in the cam­paign in such a way as to make it more ap­peal­ing to a broad au­di­ence. Thank you!

EDIT: Sev­eral peo­ple mes­saged to ask how much is ap­pro­pri­ate to con­tribute. My an­swer in these cases is always based on how many utilons and he­dons you think this book has the po­ten­tial to bring to the world. That’s how I mea­sure my own giv­ing, and my own ap­proach to ra­tio­nal­ity as a whole, as I de­scribe in this LW Main Post.
