It was OK. Sightly annoying that chunks of the book read like an advert for some product or other. If you have read "a million little pieces" you might notice a common theme on this one. While I am not expecting the book to be factual, there is also lots of information in it that is either plain wrong or misleading portrayed as fact as the author recounts knowledge he gained from online groups or other people in the scene. There is good opportunity there for confirmation bias. Observational studies for example can show correlation but not causation and should not be presented as fact in my opinion. Indeed if there is potential for bias, it should be acknowledged / qualified especially by someone whom is a potential influencer. Pace of the book was good and it was nice to hear the author read the who text. Overall I enjoyed the book and would recommend it but don't take it as a source of truth - like anything, if you want a qualified opinion, seek out someone qualified ;-)
