This book is a wonderful reference and a truly interesting and engaging story of the mind at work and play. Well worth a read.

This book is a facinating study of human nature on an individual psychological and physiological scale. Not to mention psychological. It is crammed with statistics and facts I never knew. Not boring ones, but really interesting ones. And it's funny. The guy has a sense of humor. If your looking to understand yourself and how your mind works, then get this book. Another book I would recommend that is along this genre is called, The Little Guide To Happiness. It too explores the psychology of how we work in a humorous and enlightened way. Plus it's funny too.

This is a book (also available in audio-book) which can best be described with an analogy:
It is like a book titled "How a clock works". There are many details about gears, and the history of gears, and the idea behind the gear. There are some witty remarks and examination of the history of the STUDY of gears. There are a few off-hand remarks about springs and their uses in other devices. And there is a thoroughly dull discussion of the history of the study of the analysis of the evolution of the possible ideas about time and time-keeping, in the 4th person, removed twice.
But it never tells you anything about how a clock works...

A really well written, humorous book which explores all the aspects of the mind, going beyond simply scientific analysis. The best book of its type that I have read yet. Buy it!
