A very insightful book that started to make me think differently about how I view the world around me. I loved the fact that there were so many examples to better show his points throughout the book. My only dislike was using Wikipedia as a reference source for some of the material (sometimes Wikipedia can be right and sometimes wrong).

Almost a flawless book. The only problem is that Feldman gives too many examples to make the same basic point (and that point is the premise of this book so no spoilers). But this is a very enlightening book, and after reading it, hopefully readers will realize the limitations of their own perspectives.
