Lets be honest. This book touches on such eternally-fascinating topics as sex, cannibalism, and art forgeries. This makes it fascinating to read, and always entertaining. My main criticism of this book was that I wish Bloom had been an anthropologist, not a psychologist. While the experiments are interesting to listen to, I think the book would have been even better with a little bit of a cultural survey, in exchange for some experiments that only vaguely prove Bloom's point.
