This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This is good for anyone that has not read a book in the last 15 years. There were good reviews so maybe this book is just wasn't for me.
What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?
These "widespread misconceptions" are far from widespread. I was hoping to learn something about human behavior, but it seems like the author wanted to make a quick buck by selecting common examples off the internet.
How many people actually believe "The average person only uses 10% of their brain"? Yeah, and a traffic signal only uses 1/3rd of its capacity at one time. Just imagine if it used 100%.
