5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun. Just the thing to while away my boring commute, 12 Mar. 2012
A difficult book to put down. Chapter-by-chapter the author sets out the latest information available for each conspiracy and then shares his opinion on whether its smoke with or without fire. Clearly some are very difficult to explain away and with new information from the likes of WikiLeaks and the release of some official documents there are definitely questions the author raises which need answering. The book is a very easy read, thought provoking and with some great embedded links to relevant evidence that provide greater depth. Good fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Readable, informative but possibly a little simplistic, 27 Nov. 2009
David writes a readable book and some of the insights in here are extremely powerful. David is not himself a neuroscientist and so his book is written from the perspective of a business coach who is intrigued to see how understanding the functioning of the brain can help people best manage themselves. I would personally rate it 5 stars execpt for two small caveats. One is you get a sense that in order to make his points clear he sometimes makes them overly simple - thus losing, on occasion, some important nuance. Secondly he does occasionally mix in some of his own theories (not proven using neuroscientific techniques such as fMRI) but does not clarify which findings are scientifically proven and which may simply be theories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not really a beginners guide, 28 Mar. 2009
The book is certainly very thorough. For someone reasonably familiar with financial services products this works well but for the total beginner there is too much detail that can serve to confuse.
