really liked it

Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this book, and that's coming from someone who is usually a reluctant non-fiction reader. I didn't really know what to expect, but I thought it was a well-written book overall. I enjoyed his synthesis of many different psychological studies. There were many times when I had to lean over to my husband and say "get this..." because of something interesting I had read. He also gave really good, relatable examples of how particular psychological principles work in real life. That alone went far in helping this text make sense. While the details of neuron connections, brain chemistry, and the like were sometimes beyond me, it never seemed overwhelming, instead it gave the author credibility as a scholar.
