One to dip into
on 4 August 2015
This book is good fun to read - you can annoy the person you are with by reading out a lot of the findings.
However I felt it was more of a dipping into book than reading from cover to cover - although I did read it from cover to cover, by about half way through for some reason I was getting a bit bored with it.
I know he says all of these results come from scientific research, but you can't help feeling some are more researched than others - a number feel very lightweight and "outliers" - maybe true in some circumstances, but not as generally applicable as is being claimed.
I think he was running out of material towards the end as he starts to quote from his earlier books, maybe an advert for them?
On the whole I enjoyed it, it is worth reading.
