Great review Ange! I also really liked this book and find myself thinking about it pretty frequently.

Thanks Dana. I actually think I saw the book first from you via Goodreads! So I have you to thank. It really was an enlightening read. I keep thinking about it too... Like I saw this startup coding company boasting about their open plan office and immediately thought of that study of computer programmers. You can't help but notice things because you can immediately see differences just in the people around you and how they handle situations etc.

Oh yay, I'm glad you got a good recommendation from me :) You may also like the book I'm reading right now (Power of Habit). I literally just started it, so I can't personally recommend it yet, but it's getting lots of good buzz around the office. It seems like your kind of book.

I'll wait to see what you think-- but sounds interesting!

Great review. I'm a little more than halfway through and enjoying this book very much. I particularly relate to what you said here: "I am seeing my preferences in a new light and have much understanding and acceptance regarding the things that interest me (and those that cause me stress)." Thank you.
