This book is nice in that she talks about these seminal and influential psychology experiments of the 20th Century in a narrative format, but this can also be annoying as she puts in her own two cents or embellishes some "facts" to increase the story.

With that disclaimer, I liked this book, not as the most accurate and unbiased presentation of the experiments, but because it was the opposite of stuffy and boring -- even if the author is a little bit crazy :).
