|About the Book|
Raucous. The cartoons, an obvious homage to Larry Gonick, just didnt work for me: I found them busy, distracting, and not entirely illustrative of the important points. Ornsteins tone is heavyhanded, feeling more like a lecture than a presentation. This is unfortunate, because the topics covered in this book are important ones that every self-aware person should understand: how our mind works, how it can trick us.For those curious, I might instead recommend On Being Certain Believing You Are Right Even When Youre Not or the works of Robert Sapolsky or John Allen Paulos.
