Plenty to think about here,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Will Make You Smarter (Kindle Edition)This is a really good book. Lots of thoughtful essays by all kinds of people - and several of them run counter to one another, giving even more food for thought: is Argument 1 more persuasive than Argument 2, or vice versa? Or is it possible to synthesise them into a new Argument 3?
And it's very dippable, too: the essays are quite short, and you don't feel obliged to read the book without interruption.
I'd have given it five stars were it not for the title. 'This will make you smarter' makes it sound (a) like a self-help book and (b) smug. Neither of which is calculated to make a Brit like me feel comfortable with it. A good job I bought it on Kindle, then...
