This was a great easy read that entertained me and made me smile. I loved the author's description of her surroundings, made me feel like I was in Florida.
I love how the author put into words her thoughts about leaving Disney World, "But equally, I sometimes feared that I was living in a kind of suspended animation. Disney World and Orlando tended to be a magnet for people who never wanted to grow up, a kind of Neverland...."
There is something magical in the Disney Theme Parks and it doesn't matter how old you are, you feel it as soon as you are in the park.

It is amazing the things you can learn about your mind and how we are wired. I enjoyed learning about psychology and how we are persuaded and motivated, we are interesting creatures to say the least.
Is a enjoyable read that makes you go, "uhm..." alot when reading it. Each chapter is like it's own book so you can start at any point in the book that you choose.

This book is relatively new, coming out April 2011. It is available in paperback and e-reader format for the Nook and Kindle. It is only 240-pages long and is divided into 12 chapters.
The book is written for those who are called the "quarterlifers". These are people in their twenties and thirties who found friendship in college easy to come by but harder to find in real life.
One of the great comments made in the book is we all are human beings and as such we are born to connect with people. We are wired to connect with others and not be alone. Sometimes it might seem easier to be alone but we all need one another.
A great question that Dr. Bonior asked people was how they came into their current circle of friends. The overwhelming response was most people just kinda fell into their friendships. They were passive about it and didn't choose on purpose their current friendships. Think about that for a minute. Have you been in friendships with people for maybe years and you don't really have anything in common with them at all? Why are our efforts so low in choosing friends? Something to think about.
Dr. Bonior shares a great exercise you can use to help choose friends. •7 words to describe myself are: •7 words I'd use to describe people I'd want to be my friends are: Now you have something to use as a guide when making new friends.
There is lots of great information in this book. You can read from front to back or choose a chapter that sounds interesting and start there. I would recommend this book if you are looking for knowledge and like a humorous twist with that knowledge.
