I absolutely loved this book. I agree with other reviewers in that the title is a sneaky marketing misnomer and the teeny black and white photos are so indistinguishable that they might as well have not included them, but in spite of this, I was completely fascinated from page one. Williams ties together so many interesting factoids, from the coining of the word serendipity to musings on measuring different types of intelligence, I was actually disappointed when the book was over; I could have happily read another pages on whatever William decided to dish up.
