This book started out well. It was interesting, humorous (though maybe trying a little too hard), and then it just fell apart. Nothing happened in the writing style; the problem is with the content coverage. It was weirdly organized, shallow where it should have been deep, and way too deep where shallow would suffice. Perhaps it would be more appreciated by a social scientist, but it was too survey-focused and Social Psychology focused for this scientist.

This book was ok for what it was designed to do, but it has a few problems. The author seemed to think he was getting paid by the word and used a ton more than he needed to get the point across. The book was incredibly hard to read with the excessive working used.
Really easy to understand and uses modern-day studies to explain points
