Read from January 22 to February 27, 2011

Full of insight, well balanced with horse shit. Broad generalizations are 90% our waking lives, and this book keeps true to that measure. With that being said, I enjoyed the hell out it. I would recommended it to anyone who is interested in why confrontation reinforces camaraderie.

April Kyle Nassi Interesting... curious to hear you thoughts when you're done!

I just finished it up. I had a grand time reading this one. I had several preconceived notions that this book echoed. I you know how much I like things that agree with me. It sure did give me a lot to think about. The ideas of symmetrical VS asymmetrical relationships is VERY interesting insight. I often find myself competing in a conversation for no apparent reason. I highly recommend this book. As a matter of fact, Karen Jambon is the one who recommended this book to me.
