it was ok

I thought this would be fun -- it's the sort of book of random facts I love to flick through. I wasn't encouraged by the first tip -- it seems obvious, and the solution wasn't a very smart one. (Problem: sending emails to multiple recipients results in few of them responding, and in less detailed responses. The solution offered: separate emails. The actual solution should be to use the BCC field.) It went on pretty much like that, and there were a lot of tips included where I questioned the quality of the research cited and/or the bias of the presentation of it. I really wasn't impressed by it as a scientific book (which you'd have thought it would be, given that each 'tip' was based on a scientific study) -- but for just random facts it was kind of fun.
