it was ok
Read in August, 2011

I was very disappointed in this book. Good pretense, great title... but the writing was discursive, the science flabby, the points opaque, the logic tenuous, the conclusions inconclusive.

I know. The point was that these topic were not nice tight bundles with a clear coherent conclusion... after all, they don't make sense. I accept that premise. And, it could have been cool.

There are just better, more interesting, better written, more scientifically sound or rigorous books. I suggest that you read them instead.

My book group was unanimous in its general condemnation.
