did not like it

I feel very sorry for people that buy books like this and read this one for my mom who sent it to me. Having a guy describe common sense to you as a life lesson like not talking back to cops, understanding that life is not fair, and that things will change in an instant is no surprise to me. Nor should it be to anyone that does not live a sheltered life where they have people do stuff for them. Phil talks on others stories from afar that he is close to as if examining people's ability to merely not have common sense or have it is an extremely deep and insightful skill. Most of what he talked about in this book I knew about when I was 14 and I read this when I was 22. I felt like I wasted my time after reading this book. Phil the more I hear him talk strikes me of someone of average IQ posing as a genius that no one has bothered to tell him he is not really that bright on his grand epiphanies on human motivation.
