This has some great stuff in it. But he doesn't quite get it. For example he says that while there is a strong correlation between people who don;t cry and developing ulcers, he contends that this is not indicative of a causal relationships. he takes the strictly scientific view that Both lack of crying and ulcers could be symptomatic of the same problem.

It is possible, but it would be prey easy to find out. There are numerous items like this that clearly point to the correlation being rather iron clad, but in his quest to be objective, he refuses to look systematically at the evidence.
